Citi Singapore Legal supports HOME is a fundraising campaign as part of Citi's COVID-19 community response plan.
Citi Singapore is adopting HOME as the beneficiary social service agency (SSA) for this. Founded in 2004, HOME (Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics) is dedicated to supporting and empowering migrant workers who suffer abuse and exploitation. It works with corporations, government agencies and community partners to promote inclusion, justice, equality and dignity for all migrant workers through three pillars of work (Welfare, Empowerment, and Advocacy).
About The Charity
HOME (Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics) is a charitable organisation with Institution of Public Character status. Since 2004, we have been dedicated to improving the welfare and upholding the rights of migrant workers in Singapore.
Migrant workers play a vital role in contributing to Singapore. They take on low-waged jobs as domestic workers or in the construction, marine, manufacturing, service and conservancy sectors. Their work is often dangerous and precarious.
We assist migrant workers who suffer abuse and exploitation. Unpaid salaries, excessive working hours, work injuries, physical and psychological abuse are some of the common problems these workers face. Some of them may also be victims of human trafficking.
We run a shelter for domestic workers, helpdesks for domestic workers and male migrant workers. We also offer legal assistance, health education and vocational training to the workers. In 2016, over 2,000 migrant workers received assistance from us. And about 2,000 domestic workers have sat through our skills training courses.
HOME works with government agencies, civic groups, corporations and other community partners to realise our vision in creating an inclusive society that stands for justice, fairness and equality.
