Mr Lim shared in a statement, “During this period, I feel that it is important to help the people, especially the innocent civilians who are affected.”

He added that he hopes the donation “will truly make a difference”.

Public can make a donation too

In a statement on Wednesday (18 Oct), UNRWA Commissioner-General Philippe Lazzarini wrote that “an unprecedented catastrophe is unfolding” in Gaza.

“People are forced to drink water that is not suitable for consumption, as clean potable water is simply not available,” he said. “Stocks of food, hygiene material and medicine are rapidly dwindling.”

The Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS) has also called for Singaporeans to donate to “legitimate humanitarian efforts”.

This includes RLAF’s fundraiser, which will run on multiple platforms until 31 Oct.
