Panel Talk

Before the pandemic, Singapore’s income inequality has fallen to its lowest level in nearly 2 decades. However, when the pandemic struck, it hit the lower income groups the hardest, causing household income for underprivileged families to drop as much as 69%. In this new normal which continually pushes the lower class to difficult extremes, how can we act as pillars of support for them during these trying times?

In this panel discussion, we question how we can best support the underprivileged and what happiness means to them.
