By Nicole Lim, Editor, The LKCMedicineFor six weeks, most of Singapore stayed at home. Animals from otters to monkeys roamed, emboldened by the lack of human traffic, through our streets and parks. While I like many other office workers may not have seen much of the outside world, one group of people have continued to head out to ensure that workplaces, malls and many other public buildings remained secure and safe for those who had to make use of them. They, together with the frontliners in healthcare and education, kept the School and Singapore going.
Moved to help, LKCMedicine Year 3 student Gabriel Tan and a group of his friends joined forces with Masks Sewn with Love. During the recent circuit breaker, they collectively sewed more than 600 face masks that were handed out to cleaning staff and bus drivers working at NTU and a group of vulnerable elderly people via the Lions Befrienders Senior Activity Centre.
