Our Campaign Storyends 31 May 2022, 11:59 PM
During the Circuit Breaker in 2020, I started cycling recreationally to escape the confines of the pandemic situation. I've since expanded this to cycling to work which takes me through the Park Connector Network (PCN) regularly. On my many trips to and from the office , I've often seen migrant workers toiling under the hot sun to maintain the safety and aesthetics of the PCN. In appreciation of their contributions, I would like to organise a donation drive whereby the proceeds will go to Transient Workers Count Too (TWC2)- A non-profit organisation that promotes fair treatment for migrant workers in Singapore.
I pledged to cover at least 300km on my bicycle in May , through a combination of a Round Island Cycling Trip on Labour day ( weather permits) and over my commutes by bicycle to work.
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.
