Our Campaign Story

ends 07 Sep 2020, 11:59 PM

We are a group of students from ACS International, staying home during the circuit breaker has given us some time to reflect on the situation and the various minority groups affected by the virus. It has been brought to our attention that the biggest group that has been affected is the migrant workers.

Many of us are fortunate enough to live in the comforts of our own home during this global pandemic.
However, this is not the case of the migrant workers in Singapore who have to remain in their densely populated dormitories where social distancing is not even an option.

Not only do we hope that we can financially be of help to these workers but also to raise awareness so that society is not ignorant towards the severity of this situation and how it is affecting these workers.


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.
