JOIN US IN THE FIGHT AGAINST MYANMAR 3RD WAVE
As of 10 August, 12,234 deaths and 337,561 confirmed cases have been reported. Daily new reported cases and deaths are at record high, despite the figures being widely considered as not reflecting the full extent of the severity of the situation. The surge is due to the highly infectious variants: Alpha, Delta and Kappa. The surge is also due to healthcare facilities reaching its breaking point. Hospitals are turning the people away to treat their symptoms at home. However, without the necessary medical supplies including oxygen concentrators and food supplies, the people are unable to convalescence at home. Pleas, photographs and videos requesting for emergency supplies, oxygen concentrators and emergency food supplies have surfaced across all social media platforms. As of mid-July, only 3% of the population has been vaccinated against the pandemic.
This is where SAM is making an appeal to its members, Singaporeans, Singapore citizens, and friends for help. As you might recall, the SAM COVID-19 Response is an emergency relief initiative by SAM to support the ongoing fight against the pandemic in Myanmar. Please refer to timeline attached on the various initiatives since the launch of this SAM COVID-19 Response.
With the support of its members and other donors, SAM has donated critical emergency supplies to hospitals and quarantine centres. SAM has also donated emergency food relief packs to vulnerable and impoverished families in various townships in Myanmar who faced extreme hardship due to the downturn of the economy and loss of jobs.
For this round of fund-raising, the proceeds will be used to procure the following care-pack items. The items will be provided to SAMs current 13 charity beneficiaries, as well as other affected communities in the country.
- Medical Care-Packs – Life-saving medical equipment and other medical supplies including oxygen concentrators, masks, sanitizers, vitamins
- Food Care-Packs Basic essential food items, including rice, cooking oil, canned food
