Our Campaign Story

ends 13 Jun 2020, 11:59 PM

COVID-19 has been hard on all of us, but it has been especially difficult for the migrant workers in Singapore. While the government has supplied them with essentials, they face many challenges. Many have lost livelihoods and are in isolation. They require talk time to call their families, food & drink, and money for medical attention.

We are Christian and Kaustubh, two 10th graders studying in Singapore American School who are determined to make a difference!

For every donation of more than $50, you can send a mail to Kaustubh at [email protected] which includes your favorite English song. He will post a piano cover of that song on his youtube channel as a thank you for your donation!

In addition, for every $50 raised, Christian will do 20 situps! That way he can stay fit while giving back.

Your donation can help bring the migrant workers joy in these dark times. Donate now, and help us reach our goal of $10,000!

About The Charity

HOME (Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics) is a charitable organisation with Institution of Public Character status. Since 2004, we have been dedicated to improving the welfare and upholding the rights of migrant workers in Singapore.

Migrant workers play a vital role in contributing to Singapore. They take on low-waged jobs as domestic workers or in the construction, marine, manufacturing, service and conservancy sectors. Their work is often dangerous and precarious.

We assist migrant workers who suffer abuse and exploitation. Unpaid salaries, excessive working hours, work injuries, physical and psychological abuse are some of the common problems these workers face. Some of them may also be victims of human trafficking.

We run a shelter for domestic workers, helpdesks for domestic workers and male migrant workers. We also offer legal assistance, health education and vocational training to the workers. In 2016, over 2,000 migrant workers received assistance from us. And about 2,000 domestic workers have sat through our skills training courses.

HOME works with government agencies, civic groups, corporations and other community partners to realise our vision in creating an inclusive society that stands for justice, fairness and equality.
