The #ChessAgainstCovid initiative is a charity drive initiated by Singapore Grandmaster Kevin Goh Wei Ming, together with a group of fellow volunteers and a team of Singapore’s best young talents.
Through a series of exciting and interesting online chess content such as simultaneous exhibitions, team battles, live commentary of online tournaments and master classes, the CAC team hopes to:
1) Keep the local chess community engaged and connected with chess during these challenging times and;
2) Generate funds from the chess community and the general public at large to help struggling families who are badly affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
We partner with Lakeside Family Services and its #CaringAmidstCOVID19 fund which offers immediate assistance to needy individuals and families who are adversely affected by the pandemic.
Lakeside Family Services is a Registered Charity, an Institution of a Public Character and a member of the National Council of Social Service.
