Singapore is banding together as we continue to fight the spread of the Wuhan Virus, otherwise known as the coronavirus.
Following the announcement that the Government will be distributing surgical masks to every household in Singapore, about 1,500 SAF personnel were activated to pack a total of 5.2 million masks for distribution.
835 Team Nilavolunteers and 12SportCaresyouths also got into the act by helping to distribute the surgical masks over the recent weekend at the various designated distribution points island wide.

One of the Team Nila volunteers, Candi Tan, 40, was seen volunteering together with her daughter, Caitlyn Chua, 6.
Candi said: “This is a first step for Caitlyn to start her volunteerism and contribute to the community and nation. She had seen me shave my head bald for Hair for Hope before but she was not able to do the same due to her ballet commitments. Thank you Team Nila for coordinating this.”
