The Concern Citizens Initiative Appeals to the Prime Minister of Singapore. We want the Singapore Government to reach out and respond decisively to our region's hour of need by contributing more substantially to the disaster relief and reconstruction efforts.
The terrible tragedy brought about by the tsunami blighted our region and neighbours in the final day of this year. The human toll and sufferings, the gruesome scenes of devastation have spurred many of us to make individual efforts to donate whatever we can. However, while all these individual efforts are laudable, we would like you to join hands with us to appeal to our government to take the lead and do more as a nation.
While we too have lost brothers and sisters, by sheer luck of geography our homes have been spared as the huge landmass of Sumatra bore the brunt of the quake. We need to show solidarity with our region in these moments of anguish and loss. We therefore urge you to sign the appeal letter to the Prime Minister. We want the Singapore Government to reach out and respond decisively to our region's hour of need by contributing more substantially to the disaster relief and reconstruction efforts.
We would also like to encourage you to get as many friends and family members as possible to support this appeal to our government.
Please show your concern and sign on to the appeal letter
We will send the letter to the Prime Minister once we have collected enough signatures.
We urge you to write individual letters to the Prime Minister's Office as well. Send Email to: email@example.com
Thank so much for your support and wishing you a safe and happy new year.
