Our reader says resources spent by S'poreans going overseas to do charity work should be channelled back home instead.

I AGREE with Ms Judy Lee ('Open wallet to aid locals too'; last Friday) that we should give priority to helping Singaporeans in distress. Charity begins at home. This does not mean we should be less caring towards foreigners, but we should not have the mindset that helping citizens in distress is the Government's duty. There are many groups of Singaporeans from various organisations who visit Third World countries to do charity work. If only the time, effort and money spent can be channelled back home to help our countrymen in distress, we would have made it as a fully developed First World country.
