COVID-19 has disrupted our lives in many ways. Some experience loss of income or are struggling with additional expenses for essential items. Hope Fund is set up to meet some of these needs.

In the bible, Paul implored the early church to put love into action, and one practical way to do so is to “share with the Lord’s people who are in need”.

We cannot promise to meet every need – only God can fully do so – but we seek to help in what we can.

Participate Now

Hope Singapore pledges a seed fund of $100,000 from the operating budget of 2020 to the Hope Fund. We invite you to participate in giving generously and extending a helping hand.

On top of extending help to our members, we also want to reach out to those outside of the church who are badly affected by COVID-19, through the various organisations such as Hope Centre, Community Chest and Red Cross.
