Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Nov 2020, 11:59 PM

Hi! We're just 4 acsi y3 students: Kyle, Samuel, Joshua and Eliot! Unfortunately, the ongoing covid-19 situation has hit our migrant workers hard, with hundreds being infected daily. Many of them have families back home, some even have young children, and they are here trying to make ends meet to support their families. Their jobs are both mentally and physically taxing, and it's difficult for them to even get enough rest, as their living quarters are extremely cramped. Life is hard enough for them without a virus going around. It is extremely heart-wrenching watching the number of foreign worker dormitory cases rising each day, and we want to make an effort to try and help these workers. We will be running a 100km road relay between the four of us (we'll run one by one, covering a total distance of 100km) some day in nov (if the covid situation has stabilised) IF we manage to raise $1000 for the Migrant Workers Assistance Fund, who provide accommodation, food and medical help to distressed migrant workers. Do share this link so that we can raise as much as possible! 100% of your donations will go directly to the fund (and also one step closer to making us run 100km) Every cent will make a difference in the life of a foreign worker especially during this difficult time, so do donate generously! God bless!

update: we made it, so we'll do the 100km run in nov. keep the donations coming in, because all future donations will count towards something even bigger next year...

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.
