LOW-INCOME families with infants and toddlers who live in the Central Singapore District can tap a new fund to pay for milk powder.
The Central Singapore Community Development Council (CDC) has set aside an initial sum of S$100,000 (RM260,000) for the Formula to Grow Fund.
The cost of milk powder has risen over the years, the council noted. This has affected low-income families with young children, especially those who require special milk formula due to medical conditions.
Denise Phua launched the fund yesterday in her first official event
as Mayor of the Central Singapore District. The launch was in conjunction with World Milk Day on June 1.
“The fund is an early childhood intervention programme to provide underprivileged children with a chance to maximise their development potential,” Phua said. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
