When Malaysia imposed Movement Control Order and Singapore with Circuit Breaker, cross borders public transportation was suspended, leaving many Malaysians stranded in Singapore. Pregnant ladies will need to bear high cost of delivering a child and vulnerable groups may need to incur high medical costs if they continue to stay in Singapore.

For 3 rounds, St. John Ambulance of Malaysia (with members who work and also stranded in Singapore), St John Singapore and St. John Responder Unit – SJRU worked together.
