Find out what the Jubilee Baby Gift for babies born in 2015, Singapore’s 50th year of independence, is all about.
If you and hubby are thinking of adding a new member to your family next year, you may be pleased to know that there will be a surprise birthday gift waiting for your baby to mark the special day.
According to local news reports, all Singaporean babies born in 2015 will receive a celebratory Jubilee Baby Gift from the Government, in celebration of the nation’s Golden Jubilee.
This initiative was conceived after rounds of discussions between the National Population and Talent Division (NPTD) and stakeholders, and focus group sessions with Singaporeans to get their views on how the nation should celebrate the birth of the Golden Jubilee babies. The common suggestion was to give a meaningful gift to mark the significance of the babies born in the same year as Singapore’s 50th year of independence.
