Nga Net Pyar villagers and members of an ACTS mission team unloading food supplies.

Three Singaporeans braved the rain, flood waters and difficult terrain to bring aid to flood victims in two villages in Myanmar.

For the three Catholic volunteers it was an unforgettable mission as they packed food supplies and waded through murky water to give these to the flood victims.

Mr Jerome Teo, together with Mr Christopher Yit and his wife Christina Lee, were responding to a call for relief aid from Bishop Justin Saw Min Thide, who heads Hpa An Diocese.

I am a Singapore citizen who moved to the US over 20 years ago. I hope to return home when my family’s grown because it is where my heart is.

I am a suburban mom with zero interest to promote the rights of one group over another. But I cannot remain silent when influential Singaporeans are rallying people to repeal 377A under the misguided concept of repression. It is my duty as a Singapore citizen to speak up having lived through how it’s unfolded in America.

If any group is repressed, it is the silent majority who believe that sex and marriage should be between a man and a woman. Going by my experience in the US, anybody who holds a different opinion is labelled intolerant, a bigot or a Nazi.
