On 29 December 2019, six foreign domestic workers (FDWs) were enjoying their off-day outside Lucky Plaza when a car lost control and crashed into them. The impact resulted in two FDWs losing their lives while four other FDWs were conveyed to the hospital with injuries. The Centre for Domestic Employees (CDE) understands that the two deceased FDWs have worked for many years in Singapore, and left behind family members. The injured FDWs are currently still being treated in the hospital and looked after by their employers and friends.
The Domestic Employees Welfare Fund would like to appeal to your kind generosity to support the grieving families of the two deceased FDWs, as well as the other FDWs who were injured in this accident. All donations will go fully towards the victims and/or their beneficiaries.
Any amount donated goes a long way towards helping them. Let's pray for the deceased. We wish the injured a speedy recovery too.

3. Provide mediation and legal services for employment-related disputes resolution
