If you know me, you'll know I'm huge on birthdays. Every year, the 6th of May is a massive excuse for indulgence and living large. This year is different, and instead of celebrating my 35th in Las Vegas as originally planned, I will be at home having a much lower key virtual party with my nearest and dearest.
Everyone is struggling in different ways because of this crazy pandemic, and it's easy to forget just how lucky we are compared to some others out there.
So, I'd like to raise some money and awareness for a group of people going through a really hard time, Singapore's migrant workers.
Long before COVID-19 gave us yet another reminder of the inequalities faced by the people who have played such a huge part in making this country what it is, Transient Workers Count Too (TWC2) has been fighting for their rights and welfare.
And they will continue to do so once the dust settles. So, let's help them where we can.
Donating is really simple and secure. The money will directly go to Transient Workers Count Too (TWC2). More information on the organisation can be found here: twc2.org.sg/
I have set a humble goal of $1985 (my birth year), but let's smash that if we can.
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.
