Our Campaign Storyends 01 Aug 2020, 11:59 PM
Having grown up in large, hyper-developed cities like Singapore and Dubai, we have both experienced how the cities we love and adore were built on the backs of hard-working migrants who often feel disenfranchised in these same cities they helped to create.
We would love to somehow thank them and support them, with your generous donations in lieu of wedding gifts. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so very much for your gracious support and helping to make our wedding feel even more special.
Your donations will directly support the organisation called "Transient Workers Count Too (TWC2)" which promotes fair treatment for migrant workers through policy making and offers assistance to workers to ensure that they have fair resolution of their cases, dignity in work and living conditions, access to medical care, and protection of their rights.
Thank you, thank you!!

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.
