This spreadsheet is a simple system to help connect individuals or groups of people in Singapore who have needs and offers for support. We hope that it would go beyond this moment of emergency, and encourage people to form lasting relationships for mutual aid, interdependent care, and community solidarity with recognition that the crisis is longer and deeper than the pandemic.

These forms and sheet are only in English for now. We urge you to get organised into localised pods or affinity groups with each other – look out especially for those who have accessibility needs or require labour and assistance in following up with listings.

Note that we do not ourselves as a group collect or distribute money in this mutual aid project. We do not have a bank account, paypal, paynow, or paylah. Read on for notes on safety.

There are two forms linked below – one for Needs, and another for Offers – built around basic asking and sharing. When filled up and submitted, responses are listed back here in this sheet for coordination. Anyone is free to view these listings in the corresponding tabs (bottom or above depending on device) and initiate contact based on what you need or can offer. Have a look at the Guide tab too to orientate yourself to the listings.

We facilitate this tool but can't ensure that everything everyone says is true. We all find out through relating, so get talking and chatting, learn and share about life, listen with patience, feel, build trust. You should take steps you feel are necessary to ensure safety in contacting and meeting strangers, as well as in making funds transfers, and verify information through documents (we are doing this for listings added after 6 June) where you can without being invasive or demanding. Do not proceed further if you are uncomfortable with an interaction or do not have enough information. The information you pass on affects how others interact as well.

To lessen the burden on people asking for support having to communicate (and feeling like having to prove themselves) constantly, try to coordinate with others in mini groups and infoshare. If you are approached by anyone directly for assistance, refer to the sheet and others first to confirm information. Do not proceed further if unsure. We've found that in this process, things will sound new and unfamiliar, but that's what happens when worlds that have been violently separated meet. The volume and consistency of these struggles is plain to witness. We (and that's we who need help and can help) are really not here to doubt, police, and question in bad faith. Define boundaries as you would with other relationships, point out discomforts or limits. If you have to step away or say no, do that too, don't let anyone guilt you into anything, and don't use guilt to make others act. We believe in autonomy and practicing it.
