Our Campaign Story

In Singapore, barriers to migrant worker healthcare and treatment options include the lack of affordability, limited support from employers, anxiety over losing their jobs, and poor health awareness.

As part of KPMG in Singapore's annual Giving Week initiative, we are organising a fundraiser in support of MigrantWell Singapore - a charity that works together with community partners like St. Andrew's Mission Hospital and HealthServe to provide holistic healthcare for migrant workers in Singapore.

100% of your donations will go towards the MigrantWell Welfare Fund which addresses care gaps, such as in dental and mental health, and other health concerns like physiotherapy and rehabilitation. The fund complements existing healthcare services provided by the Government's Primary Care Plan and existing medical insurance so that migrant workers, who are ineligible for healthcare subsidies offered to citizens and permanent residents, can seek treatments before their conditions worsen.

The MigrantWell Welfare Fund aims to support the healthcare needs of close to 2,000 migrant workers in its first year and double that in its second year. We would like to invite you to collectively contribute towards and uplift the health, safety and well-being of our migrant workers.
