How Your Donation Makes a Difference
10 dollars buy four meals for jobless workers.
50 dollars enable us to top up two workers' EZ-Link transport cards, so they can get to hospital appointments.
A visit to a hospital's emergency department costs about $110. Your donation will help one worker when he's in need.
To house an injured, jobless worker costs about $250 per month. Your donation gives shelter to one worker in pain.
Any donation, small or large, is appreciated. Volunteers can't be present every day. Social workers are essential and they have to be paid. Your donation helps.

Michiyo, Vinita, and Lionel are going to run every 4 hours, for 48 hours. We will kick off on Friday 22nd, 8pm and end on Sunday 24th 8pm (last run ends 4pm!)
Michiyo & Vin will run 4KM every 4 hours and Lionel will be running 4 miles every 4 hours.
We are doing this to raise funds and support the migrant workers who literally built Singapore. We will be donating to Transient Workers Count 2 (TWC2).
About The Charity
Transient Workers Count Too extends help to low-wage migrant workers who have been injured, unpaid, or abused by employers. Low-wage migrant workers constitute about one in five persons in Singapore. Doing jobs like construction, sanitation and domestic work, they form the backbone of our society and economy. Yet they are often treated badly by employers. Sometimes, salaries are not paid, rest days denied, housed in unsafe and unhygienic places, physically and psychologically abused, and when injured, abandoned without adequate medical treatment or left with no income. Migrant workers have no family in Singapore to fall back on for help. Doing low-wage work, they do not have savings to tide them through difficulties. TWC2 tries to help by extending a lifeline to those in need.
