Mutual aid initiatives – facilitating the exchange of resources and services for mutual benefit – started as Google spreadsheets, but could potentially evolve into virtual and ground communities which last beyond the coronavirus pandemic.
We speak to Rachel Ooi (Mutual Aid Hub: aidhubsg.com) as well as Abhishek Bajaj and Vincent Ng (A Good Space: agoodspace.org) to learn more about their work and motivations, the challenges, and the way forward.
