Like most Singaporeans, Ms Sharon Shum, 29, received a $600 Solidarity Payment from the Government on Tuesday - a sum issued to help households cope with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.


Not only did she donate the full sum to gender equality advocacy group Association of Women for Action and Research (Aware), but she also started an online fund-raiser on crowdfunding platform Give.Asia urging others to contribute their Solidarity Payment to five charities or non-governmental organisations - Aware, Hagar Singapore, the Singapore Red Cross, Boys' Town and the Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics (Home).
