Do you feel like doing your part to help out the people in need during this COVID-19 crisis but do not know how?
Are you running out of interesting and educational outdoor activities to do during your free time?
Do you have children who are stuck to their mobile phones or computer screens?
From playing on iPads to watching television, children seem to be spending more and more time indoors. The increase in numbers of children spending a predominate amount of time inside has led to numerous studies being published highlighting the negative impact this is having on their health and development. At the same time, research has also discovered that there are many benefits to children playing outdoors, here are just some of the benefits:
Learning through play is a fun way of helping children to learn new information and skills. As well as this, outdoor learning encourages children to think of learning is an ongoing process instead of just something done in the classroom.
Outdoor play is great for encouraging children’s creativity. Away from the constraints and confinement of indoor play, being outside children’s imaginations are often stimulated by the objects around them and they quickly tap into their creativity.
With more room to play in, children are often more active when outside, which helps them to build strong bones and good fitness levels, while also enabling them to burn off extra energy and calories. As well as this, being in the sunshine means children naturally absorb vital vitamin D, a lack of which can lead to Rickets.

And now during the COVID-19 period, we are doing our part to support the front line medical staff and help the vulnerable elderly and low income families.
Transportation vouchers have already gone out to healthcare professionals in hospitals and polyclinics. We will soon be supporting other community healthcare staff and charities serving those who have been especially impacted by COVID-19's precautionary measures, such as vulnerable seniors and low income families.
The pandemic will be here for a while and even as the economy slows down, many charities, hit by restrictions in fund-raising efforts, have begun bearing millions of dollars in lost donations. They need our help. That is why we want to keep the Sayang Sayang Fund open, to help make sure no one falls by the wayside during this challenging period.
Your heart-warming outpouring of love and support truly brings to life the community spirit of the Sayang Sayang Fund. Thank you for your continuing support.
(The Sayang Sayang Fund is a community impact fund to care for the vulnerable in our community during times of national crises.)
