It was reported that a group of NUS researchers, led by Professor Mohan J. Dutta, Director of the Center for Culture-Centered Approach to Research and Evaluation (CARE) and Head of the FASS Department of Communications and New Media, conducted a study on 180 low-income individuals over the past three years. The study found that while resources are available to help the people on low incomes, many of them do not know how to tap into them, while others do not seek help for fear of being stigmatised and alienated.
