Think Centre would like to express its utmost respect and appreciation to all health care workers who are at the frontline of the war against SARS.
These health care workers are selfless and dedicated to saving the lives of fellow Singaporeans who have fallen to the dreadful virus.
Think Centre urges the public to stop all forms of discrimination towards all health care workers, many of whom are migrant workers who are fearlessly fighting alongside Singaporean health care workers in the line of duty.
Think Centre also sends its deepest condolences to the families of SARS victims. The Government of Singapore should honour its promise to do its best to provide economic, pyschological and socio-cultural reliefs to all patients, victims and their families.
Lastly, Think Centre calls on fellow Singaporeans to show their compassion, solidarity and support for one another regardless of race, language or religion. We as one united people as often pledged, will emerge as better individuals because we truly understood, cared and shared through this crisis.
