From Pasir Ris to Jurong and even Sentosa, Singapore roared with cheers and claps for healthcare workers on Monday, March 30. The movement was created locally by British expat Martin Verga, who rallied more than 4,700 Singapore residents on Facebook event page Clap For #SGUnited, inspired by the Clap for Carers movement in the United Kingdom. Following the positive reaction, the movement is now being held every Monday at 8pm – so grab your pans, pots, musical instruments, and loudest cheer as Singapore stands united.
And while clapping and cheering for our healthcare workers is truly a heartwarming gesture, there are definitely other meaningful methods to show our appreciation for those fighting on the frontline to keep Singapore safe from Covid-19. Here are some simple yet useful ways to thank them.
