The programme aims to assist our lower-income union members to cope with the rising cost of living with a one-time cash relief. With the recent announcement from Ministry of Education (MOE) to allow private bus operator to increase their school bus fares, NTUC-U Care Fund will be supporting our members to defray the cost and ensure that their children's journey remains unobstructed.
