Even before the Covid-19 pandemic, Mr Jay Ng, 38, was already volunteering to help lower-income families, migrant workers and other marginalized groups in Singapore. But when he saw his lower-wage friends losing their jobs and struggling to put food on the table during the crisis, he went a step further: He quit his job at the fintech firm he co-founded in 2018. Why give up a six-figure job? To serve the needy by setting up a social enterprise organisation called WeShine.
Jay Ng, CEO of WeShine, was invited to share with Zaobao Singapore his thoughts on being part of the Alliance for Action.
