The grant is part of the S$2.5 million WeCare @ South West effort to provide resident-centric and holistic help programmes.
The wider initiative covers various assistance schemes, grants and programmes for the next three years and it covers transport subsidies, meals and stationery bursaries, utility vouchers and befriending programmes. - CNA/ec
