Video – Poverty in Singapore

This video has been created to raise awareness about poverty in Singapore. Most Singaporeans don’t think there is any, but walking down the busiest road in Singapore I found many impoverished people. The country needs to recognize their needs and support them more. For more information please go to: http://povertyawareness.wetpaint.com/rockerchickO09

The wealth generated by Singapore’s much-touted economic success story has not benefited everyone, least of all its senior citizens, a.k.a. the nation builders. Filmed on the streets and back-alleys of downtown Singapore in July 2007, this video does not contain any enactments or acting. Directed, shot and edited by Martyn Seesingaporerebel
