Our Campaign Story

ends 11 Jul 2020, 11:59 PM

LAUD Architects Pte Ltd was founded in 2004. The firm runs a wide range of project types but are notably known for their community and civic institution projects as well as their church projects.

In 2019, the firm underwent a rebranding exercise which emphasised the importance of the user's joyful experience of the space, thus the motto 'Creating Joyful Space'. This phrase not only articulates the philosophy of the founding partners but also describes the design ethos of the firm in the projects past, present and future.

In this difficult time of COVID-19, LAUD Architects felt the need to bring joy to these migrant workers, through small but tangible ways.

The staff and management of LAUD Architects have committed to a sum of $20,000, to give to workers who, primarily, work at current LAUD project sites. The items have been determined through consultations with the various contractors, and provided according to their specific needs.

These include personal sanitation items such as disinfectant sprays, body soap, laundry soap.

The team also included items to bring them a little joy such as food, fruits and recreation equipment such as badminton rackets, and assorted board games.

At the same time, LAUD Architects has committed to donate $10,000 and to raise a further $30,000 towards Migrant Workers Centre, through their network of clients, consultants and fellow collaborators.

Parties interested to donate to this cause may do so via giving.sg

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.
