Struggling family gets over 10k in donations but giving 5k to ST pocket money fund
18 Apr 2020
More than 120 people, including Singaporeans living overseas, wrote in to offer help in some form after reading about 17-year-old SP Common Engineering student Loh Miao Xin and her family in The Straits Times last weekend. First-year polytechnic student Miao Xin had shared that her mother was out of a job, as the coronavirus outbreak had put the Thai hawker stall her mother was working at out of business. Since then, Miao Xin’s family had received more than $10,000 in donations. The family plans to donate about $5,000 to The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund after clearing their existing debts.
