They were at Block 182 Rivervale Crescent with grassroots workers at 5 pm on Saturday (Apr 17), distributing food among 150 families.

Mr Chua posted photos of the food distribution event on Facebook, showing himself and Ms Khan,  clad in WP blue, with the volunteers who helped them at the event. 

He especially thanked the volunteers “for braving the thunderstorm” that day, as Singapore experienced very heavy rain and there were even flash floods in different parts of the city.
