On Sunday 24th May, I am running 42km within my neighbourhood in Singapore in aid of Migrant Workers Assistance Fund via giving.sg to raise much needed support for Singapore's Migrant workforce currently impacted by COVID-19.

Thank you for your support and thank you to the Migrant Worker's Centre who ensure Fairness, Assistance, Integration and Representation for all Migrant workers in Singapore.

Yours in unity,

Derek

About The Charity

The Migrant Workers' Assistance Fund (MWAF) is the humanitarian charity of the Migrant Workers' Centre (MWC). MWC assists migrant workers redress employment disputes and furthers education and awareness among them of their employment rights. MWC also promotes migrant workers' social integration as well as their harmonious co-existence with Singaporeans at the workplace and beyond. As case assistance for migrant workers is frequently accompanied by follow-on issues with housing, food and other subsistence costs, the MWAF was set up in 2012 (IPC-certified in 2014) to fund all humanitarian and emergency assistance rendered to MWC case clients - if their employers fail to discharge the duty to care for and protect their own workers. The MWAF allows the MWC to cover and protect vulnerable workers up till their outstanding matters are resolved and concluded, and is a key resource for the MWC in providing proper and adequate help to distressed and victimized migrant workers in Singapore.
