Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Aug 2020, 11:59 PM

Migrant workers make up 36% of Singapore's work force, yet they have very little rights and assistance when COVID-19 hit. Being cooped up in dormitories, these workers looking to make a better life for themselves found themselves out of work, unable to return to their home countries, lost and confused.

CVP Group teams up with Diverse Solutions to help these migrant workers have some semblance of normality during this trying time by raising funds so that Diverse Solutions, together with Migrant Workers Centre, procure essential items to help these Migrant Workers with their day to day living, and also to help secure and support their livelihood.

CVP Group will then assist in creating a video for MWC so that they can use it to help shed light on what goes on behind dormitory doors, and give a glimpse of the lives of the people who we often overlook, but who has helped build and shape Singapore with it's sky scrappers, and functionalities.

All donations raised from this campaign will go directly to Migrant Workers Assistance Fund, with CVP Group and Diverse Solutions taking nothing from the campaign.

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.
