Join us for an evening with Madam Halimah Yacob! – 27 November 7.30pm
Poverty in Singapore sounds like a disconnect- with our reputation as a financial hub, a shoppers’ haunt and a food haven. Yet, the poor exist – The 70-year-old cleaner who can barely make ends meet, the primary school boy who wears the same torn uniform every day. These are silent sufferers, voiceless individuals.
Join Speaker of Parliament, Madam Halimah Yacob as she shares how each of us can be that `somebody’ and how the choices we make today can change the lives of individuals and generations to come.
Details of the event are as follows:
