What crap is this? Our budget for the poor is ever increasing. What has this got to the YOG budget that went over budgeted? Does Wake Up Singapore expect the Govt gives out enough for the poor to afford eating at restaurants?
The amount disbursed by the Singapore Government’s ComCare schemes rose to S$130 million in Financial Year 2015 – 10 per cent higher than the year before, the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) announced on Friday (Dec 9).
According to the MSF, there were around 87,000 beneficiaries of ComCare schemes in FY2015. Of these, the majority of households received short-to-medium term assistance and the number of such households have risen in the past four years to about 30,000.
