Our Campaign Storyends 26 May 2020, 11:59 PM
I grew up sheltered, most of us do, we are blessed , amidst our rat race and the air-conditioned comforts we all enjoy. There are silent warriors that help us repair our roads, clean our streets, care for our loved ones, and build our nation. These are the migrant workers who come to our Singapore for a better life so that they may give their family a living. Their average wages go from as low as $400 to up to $1000, yet they send back almost 60% every month to their families so that they too can take care of their loved ones.
I have made also a video on how i feel about what we can learn from the current COVID-19 situation. As i am not allowed to post videos here , this is the link, do watch it
About The Charity
Transient Workers Count Too extends help to low-wage migrant workers who have been injured, unpaid, or abused by employers. Low-wage migrant workers constitute about one in five persons in Singapore. Doing jobs like construction, sanitation and domestic work, they form the backbone of our society and economy. Yet they are often treated badly by employers. Sometimes, salaries are not paid, rest days denied, housed in unsafe and unhygienic places, physically and psychologically abused, and when injured, abandoned without adequate medical treatment or left with no income. Migrant workers have no family in Singapore to fall back on for help. Doing low-wage work, they do not have savings to tide them through difficulties. TWC2 tries to help by extending a lifeline to those in need.
