Our Campaign Storyends 07 Jul 2020, 11:59 PM
RWC Singapore's small team of desk jockeys are aiming to run and walk 1000+kms in 30 days to raise money for HOME.
The great news is that all the funds raised by RWC Singapore for HOME will be double-matched by our parent company, RWC Partners, so each $1 will become $3!
HOME provides essential support for Singapore's migrant workers, a particularly vulnerable group within our community who have been especially hard hit by Covid-19.
On top of their normal workload, HOME has been working on behalf of foreign migrant workers in Singapore through this difficult time to:
- provide emergency shelter
- provide financial assistance for urgent medical care, food, transport and communication
- provide legal assistance
- provide counselling and emotional support
- provide preventative measures.
Thank you for helping us to support HOME's vital work!
From all of the team at RWC Singapore
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.
