Stories of Kindness: How Singapore came together to battle a pandemic
- About the Author
In 2020, Singapore, with the rest of the world was struck by the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a difficult time. People stayed at home for extended periods as students adopted distance learning and adults started working from home. The new normal also brought the need for new skills and introduced new terms like front-liners, circuit breakers and safe-distancing measures.
Stories of Kindness is a compilation of articles from The Pride that celebrates individuals and organisations that showed graciousness during a time of need. These stories feature those who have gone above and beyond to help fellow Singaporeans who face physical and financial challenges as well as those who battle mental wellness issues.
Inspiring and heart-warming, this collection of 39 stories reminds us that there is kindness in everyone and finds a silver lining in a global pandemic — that in times of trouble, instead of stepping away, people will step up to show charity, compassion, and consideration for others.
An online outreach initiative of the Singapore Kindness Movement, The Pride covers current affairs, trending news and provides in-depth commentary on local and global issues that are speak to Singaporeans. Focusing on social and community issues, The Pride hopes to inspire people to action — be it through developing personal positivity or taking communal responsibility.
Kindness is in everyone. The Singapore Kindness Movement wants to encourage everyone to start, show and share kindness. We aspire to inspire graciousness — one kind act at a time. By sparing a thought for the people around us, we hope to create a gracious society, and make life better for you and me.
