Not having a computer or an Internet connection, it might be argued, is symbolic of the many challenges faced by low-income Singaporean households (with school-going children). And even with government assistance – beyond the provision of such technological necessities – individuals and community groups have also stepped up, offering other forms of assistance to Singaporeans who may have fallen through the cracks.
We speak to Lim May-Ann (Engineering Good’s Computers against COVID: https://engineeringgood.org/computers-against-covid/) as well as David Hoe (Project Stable Staples: projectstablestaples.sg).
