How Your Donation Makes a Difference
10 dollars buy four meals for jobless workers.
50 dollars enable us to top up two workers' EZ-Link transport cards, so they can get to hospital appointments.
A visit to a hospital's emergency department costs about $110. Your donation will help one worker when he's in need.
To house an injured, jobless worker costs about $250 per month. Your donation gives shelter to one worker in pain.
Any donation, small or large, is appreciated. Volunteers can't be present every day. Social workers are essential and they have to be paid. Your donation helps.
Our Campaign Storyends 31 May 2020, 11:59 PM
The Covid19 pandemic has been a trying time for us, equally so for the migrant workers. With the virus hitting dormitories hard and the stopping of construction projects, migrant workers face financial and mental pressure.
To the ones that have constructed our homes, paved our roads and built Singapore's foundations, let's offer a helping hand to our migrant workers.
We are a group of students from various junior colleges and polytechnics who are selling socks to raise funds for the migrant workers. Every donation and sock bought helps. Contact us at [email protected] or check out our instagram account @projectcareformi for more details!
About The Charity
Transient Workers Count Too extends help to low-wage migrant workers who have been injured, unpaid, or abused by employers. Low-wage migrant workers constitute about one in five persons in Singapore. Doing jobs like construction, sanitation and domestic work, they form the backbone of our society and economy. Yet they are often treated badly by employers. Sometimes, salaries are not paid, rest days denied, housed in unsafe and unhygienic places, physically and psychologically abused, and when injured, abandoned without adequate medical treatment or left with no income. Migrant workers have no family in Singapore to fall back on for help. Doing low-wage work, they do not have savings to tide them through difficulties. TWC2 tries to help by extending a lifeline to those in need.
