Our Campaign Storyends 28 Aug 2022, 11:59 PM
This campaign is carried out by The MYgrant Collective, consisting of Falisha Dina and Nurani Kaseh, in conjunction with HOME, a charity that aims to uphold the rights of migrant workers and victims of human trafficking and forced labour in Singapore. HOME's work is centred on advocacy, welfare and empowerment, and forging an inclusive society that stands by the principles of equality and non-discrimination.
With a 6-month fundraiser duration spanning from 1 July to 1 December, we hope to help HOME raise a total of 25,000, in which funds collected will be fuelled towards supporting HOME's initiatives.
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.
