Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Jun 2020, 11:59 PM

As you might have heard, the number of COVID-19 cases among our migrant workers have risen past 2000 as of 16th April 2020. While we look forward to a warm, comforting meal during the Circuit Breaker as we stay home to stop the spread of COVID-19, dormitory kitchens have started closing in order to meet safe distancing measures.

#HOMEFORALL Migrants is an initiative by the Collective of Migrant Efforts (COME) - a cross-sectoral partnership across NGOs, government agencies and citizens, convened by A Good Space Cooperative. We aim to raise $800,000 to provide 20,000 migrant workers with rations over 10 days. Our focus areas are food, hygiene and internet connectivity for the workers.

COME will be distributing care meals through Alliance of Guest Workers Outreach (as part of the Hope Initiative Alliance) and Migrant Workers' Centre.

A Factory Converted Dorm (FCD) can range from 50 - 1000 workers / dorm. For $40, you can sustain a migrant brother with 2 meals a day for 10 days. $400, for 10 workers; $4000 for 100 workers; $8000 for 200 workers (an average FCD size). If you'd like to learn more contact us at 9105 7891, Abhishek.

Thank you for donating. Show our migrant brothers that Singapore is a #HomeForAll Migrants.

Disclaimer: The funds are going towards Alliance of Guest Workers Outreach (AGWO under Hope Initiative alliance) and Migrant Workers Centre (MWC) to provide food to workers who are unable to secure their 3 meals during this period.

About The Charity

Hope Initiative Alliance is an inter-racial and inter-religious alliance of social service organisations, civil groups and corporations that seeks to eradicate social inequalities across various facets of society.

As an aggregator of support and services amongst our network of hundreds of partners and associates, HIA seeks to work closely with them to help the guest workers, homeless, elderly, people with disabilities, the poor and needy communities, especially amidst the COVID-19 situation.

The Alliance of Guest Workers Outreach (AGWO), a movement of the Hope Initiative Alliance, seeks to provide holistic care, medical assistance, distribute Care Meals and other essentials to the guest workers housed in factory-converted dormitories.

Apart from the guest worker community, rough sleepers are another group-at-risk during this trying period. We are working with our partners to advocate temporal Safe Sound Sleeping Place (S3P) throughout the circuit breaker period, or even longer. We are also looking at channelling a small allowance or ex gratia to sustain their needs. In-kind donations are also greatly needed to facilitate their needs in temporary shelters.
