SG supporting hawkers

Times are tough for our hawkers right now. With the recent changes, they need us more than ever. But there’s certain hawkers who might need a little more support, like those who aren’t on delivery platforms or the older hawkers who aren’t tech-savvy. That’s why we love what these Singaporeans are doing to help!
