SingPost is #HereWithYou

 

In times like these, we are
Here With You


The past few months have been tough for all of us in Singapore, and around the world.


During these uncertain times, we know how important it is for us to stay close to our loved ones, even while staying apart. And it is during times like these that SingPost continues to connect people, communities and businesses. Singapore Post has weathered many storms with Singapore over the last 162 years. This time – despite the challenges – is not any different.


We have a responsibility to you, our community, our customers, our friends.

 

Despite the challenges we face, we continually focus our resources and operations to make sure that your mail and parcels keep moving, as we become more essential than ever.


In times like this, we see the best in Singaporeans rising to the occasion to help one another. As a national institution, we also chipped in to do our part for the communities we serve.


  1. BYOBClean with Temasek

    In Feb 2020, SingPost joined hands with Temasek Foundation in the multi-lateral community effort to distribute hand sanitisers to all 1.5 million households. As the nation’s public postal licensee, we distributed the collection pamphlets to all households in Singapore over two days.

  3. Speedpost sponsorship of items to wife and newborn of Bangladeshi worker in Singapore who tested positive

    ItsRainingRaincoats, a community initiative for migrant workers in Singapore, rallied around one of the first few patients infected with COVID-19. Known as Case 42, the Bangladeshi national was the sole breadwinner of his family, and was admitted into ICU not too longer after.


    ItsRainingRaincoats then organised a donation drive for his heavily-pregnant wife, seeking donations for baby items. Singaporeans rose to the occasion, donating over 33 boxes worth of items, which were then split into three shipments, the other two shares going to families of two Indian migrant workers who unfortunately passed away in Singapore.


    We were honoured to be able to help in what we do best, by shipping all the items to Bangladesh and India and making sure they reach the hands of these families safely.


    The wife of Case 42 subsequently gave birth to a healthy baby boy on 31 March. In April, the Bangladeshi worker has since been transferred to a general ward, and we wish him a full recovery as well as a joyous family reunion with his newborn son!

  5. Mask Sewn with Love

    As Singapore’s national postal service provider, SingPost is privileged to be able to partner the People’s Association (PA) in its Masks Sewn With Love community initiative. Members of the public can place their hand-woven masks into blank envelopes with the initiative name, and place them in any posting box islandwide. We have committed to waiving postage fees for all masks collected under this initiative, and to store the masks for delivery when the time comes.

  7. Sponsorship of envelopes and stamps for Tzu Chi mask initiative

    We sponsored envelopes and postage for Tzu Chi to mail face mask covers sewn by their volunteers for members of the public.

  9. Speedpost medicine deliveries for NUH and 3 Polyclinics

    In the midst of this pandemic, people who require regular medications have understandably been wary about visiting medical institutions. We offered our assistance to the National Healthcare Group to send medicine to homes, and are currently delivering for the National University Hospital, as well as Geylang, Toa Payoh and Hougang Polyclinics.


With cold-chain capabilities such as cold rooms and temperature-controlled ice boxes, we hope our initiative gives patients a peace of mind while still getting their medication on time, while alleviating the load of our frontline healthcare workers during this critical time.
