Our Campaign Story

ends 25 Oct 2020, 11:59 PM

Dear all, I am a student at UWCSEA running a campaign aiming to raise S$5,000 to support migrant workers. The current spread of COVID-19 has disproportionally hit migrant workers, who account for almost 88% of Singapore's 50,000 cases with the number rising continually.

Ever since Singapore's "Circuit Breaker" measures, aimed at curbing the spread of COVID-19, have been implemented, workers have to stay in isolation in their dormitories and in some cases cannot get their meals appropriately.

Additionally, there has been an inadequate supply of masks, sanitizers and other essential items for these workers which possesses a significant safety threat given that there are thousands of infection cases in the crowded dormitories which house up to 20 people.

The workers are facing these issues atop the fear, anxiety and stress of staying in a cramped and enclosed area and not getting infected themselves, and to support their family back home.

With your help, we can minimize the unfavourable situation that these workers are facing after all that they have done for the infrastructure and development of the country. Please consider donating to Migrant Workers' Assistance Fund to support these workers.

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.
