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.

*Update: I decided to replace the recycled earrings for every $25 donation with gifts for the Essential Workers since I thought it would be more meaningful! Feel free to let me know if you donated and preferred the earrings!*
Hello everyone! After reading countless news about the viral outbreak in the Migrant Workers dormitories due to cramped conditions, I decided to start a fundraising campaign to help support the workers!
To me, they were like the unsung heroes of our country for taking on some of the toughest jobs! However, it is very sad to hear that they had been living in such poor living conditions when they had actually contributed so much to our country... :(
I may not be able to donate financially on my own as my family is quite affected by the pandemic as well... but I really hope to help them as well since they are always very friendly to me since young!
But instead of my usual drawing commissions, I decided that for every donation made, I would give out a handmade gift to any essential workers I came across during my essential trips! As I felt that they had worked very hard yet they are underappreciated even during this Covid-19 crisis... :(
For any enquiries, feel free to contact me on Instagram @twilightz.co or email me at [email protected]!
Thank you for reading this and I hope you can help to share this campaign as well! :)

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.
