Our Campaign Storyends 24 Apr 2020, 11:59 PM
This campaign is to raise funds to help migrant workers in Singapore meet their basic needs as we fight the COVID pandemic together.
The money raised from this campaign will go towards helping to top up the phone cards of migrant workers who are now forced to remain in their dormitories. Most of them have no or limited wifi access. They also either have no means or money to top up their cards to make basic phone calls or to buy data. These funds are also meant to help the workers on special pass who've lost their jobs, cannot work and have no income and also help with food, toiletries and personal hygiene products.
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.
