AMRIN AMIN: IF YOU NEED TO JOIN A GANG, JOIN MY GANG & HELP OTHERS

Former MP Amrin Amin teamed up with about 30 ex-offenders to help distribute food and groceries to the needy at Beach Road.

He shared a Facebook post, reflecting on his experience with the ex-offenders:

Here is what he said

They’re fighting back by doing good.

30 ex-offenders came together to help needy families at Blk 4 and 5 Beach Road on Sunday (17 Apr). They raised $2,000, each of them pitching in to buy groceries and festive goodies. They also got dates from Dadah Itu Haram and masks and sanitizers from Kampong Kapor Family Service Centre.

On Thursday (14 Apr), we sent chicken rice sponsored by Zoul’s Corner to needy families at Blk 6 Beach Road.

They told me I met some of them when they were serving time – but I honestly can’t recall as they all sported the same crewcut in prison. I’m glad they’re out and we’re now working together to be a force for good.

In jest, I often said that if you feel a need to join a gang, join my gang – we do good together, help others. The ‘gang’ is taking shape, no more jesting.

I’m proud of them. It’s not easy to step up. We spoke and they know haters can say nasty, mean things to put them down.

Their intentions are noble – to help those in need, especially seniors living alone and young children. And they’re trying to be and do good – trying very hard! Well done, lads. We have your backs!
