“My dad sells carrot cake at Block 107 in Ang Mo Kio. A customer of my dad’s went up to him and gave him S$100 to support the fund raising. Thank you for this!”
Ngerng had also urged the public to come to his aid last year, after PM Lee commenced the defamation suit against him.
He managed to raise about S$110,000 in donations.
The lawsuit came after several articles which Ngerng on his blog, The Heart Truths, in 2014.
