If you’re wondering what can you do to show your support for frontline workers in Singapore, one Martin Verga, has organized an event on Facebook that invites you to clap for our medical professionals at 8pm tonight (30 March 2020) at the comfort of your house’s window.
Here’s his intentions:
“After watching highlights of the UK population #Clapforourcarers #ClapforNHS on Thursday night in an emotional setting, I believe we can do our own version of this for Singapore! For the doctors, nurses, carers, emergency services, delivery workers, warehouse workers, cleaners, supermarket staff and everyone else keeping Singapore safe and stocked at this time. We will be forever grateful.
On top of this I could not be prouder to live and work in a country where the government has been applauded on the worldwide stage for its response to the COVID-19 outbreak. The transparency of what is happening in Singapore with daily updates from gov.sg keeping the population informed with honesty and integrity makes living through this ongoing crisis easier and more comfortable. For this they should definitely be included in the clap!
So how about it, Monday 30th March, 8pm, out of your windows, doors or balconies of your home we can clap as loud as we can to #SGUnited and let the people getting us through this tough situation be appreciated.
Imagine Singapore come alive from rooftops, windows and doors. It’s a sound I would love to hear take over the city in appreciation of all.”
This event appears to be gaining momentum with Singaporeans. At press time, 6,600 Facebook users have indicated they are interested in participating.
In case you are unsure what you need to do tonight at 8pm, here’s a video clip of Prince Geroge, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis clapping for the frontline workers:
