Supporting those hard-hit by Covid-19

As the battle against Covid-19 continues, various groups of people within our communities are facing enormous needs. At DBS, our support for our communities comes through various initiatives and programmes.

DBS Stronger Together Fund
SGD 10.5 million fund to help communities hard hit by Covid-19 across the region. Some of the highlights include:
In Singapore, we are matching dollar-for-dollar donations to provide more than 700,000 meals for the elderly, low-income families and migrant workers.
In Hong Kong, we are providing resources for local charities to expand their outreach programmes to the elderly and vulnerable communities.
In China, we will be providing about 1.7 million meals to affected communities over the next 12 months.
In India, we are partnering NGOs to scale up public health infrastructure and sponsor free tests for the underprivileged.
In Indonesia, we are donating medical supplies and test kits to help address the current shortage.
In Taiwan, we are donating 50,850 food packs to those in need, with all products purchased from social enterprises.
