SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 12 August 2021 - Leading baby retailer Mothercare is inviting its
customers and community to share stories about parenthood and family life for a
chance to win a complete nursery makeover. The SG
Cribs programme was first started in 2020 by Mothercare to give
relief to parents in Singapore, both familiar and new, while supporting local
business partners at the same time.
As many families in Singapore have been affected by the changing
economy due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mothercare is using SG Cribs to create a
positive social change by giving back to the community, one project at a time.
Assisting Mothers and Families in need
Couples who are expecting or have just welcomed a new arrival into
the family will often want to dedicate a space in their home as a nursery for
their newborn. The SG Cribs programme is aimed at helping mothers and families
in need who do not have the resources to build and furnish their child's
nursery the way they want to.
"I grew up in a
low income family, whereby both my parents are unfit for work [due to health
problems]. Given our family circumstances, we received support from the
government and charity organisations," shared 29-year-old Rong Rong back in
2020 before she became the first winner of the SG Cribs competition.

childhood by having a room, a beautiful and nice room that she will be happy to
come home to," she added. Find out more about her story here.
