About Campaign

ends 30 Nov 2016, 12 AM

Migrant workers help keep households, businesses and industries running in Singapore. But sometimes, they can run into difficulties with abusive employers.

The Migrants Emergency Assistance and Support (MEANS) Fund helps migrant workers (including domestic helpers) who are legally employed in Singapore under R passes, work permits or special passes. It provides immediate and short-term financial assistance to needy and distressed migrant workers by covering:

1. Medical care to ill or injured workers who are abandoned, abused, under threat or under fed by their employers or whose medical care is not covered by their employers.

2. Shelter and basic necessities to injured workers or those seeking redress against unfair employment practices such as violence at work or contract violation.
.
3. Transport cost for workers who need to go to the various authorities (like Ministry of Manpower or the police) to resolve their cases regarding unfair employment practices as well as workers seeking employment while assisting in investigations.

To help some 200 of these migrant workers, we need to raise $100,000. The Fund will be administered by Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics (HOME), a registered charity in Singapore dedicated to upholding the rights of migrant workers in Singapore.

Your contribution will help give these disadvantaged workers the means to get by.
