How Your Donation Makes a Difference

About Us

Hope Initiative Alliance is an award-winning, inter-racial, interreligious, and intercultural charity organisation that aims to provide holistic care for vulnerable and marginalised communities.

As an aggregator of support and services amongst our network of hundreds of partners and associates, HIA partners with over 100 social service organisations, civil society organisations, corporations and government agencies to mobilise resources in a sustainable manner, with the aim to eradicate social inequalities across various facets of society.

Currently, HIA has formed various movements that reach out to the migrant workers, migrant domestic workers, homeless individuals and rough sleepers, the vulnerable in the community (such as the elderly), young children, and interfaith youths.

In 2020, for our contributions to society amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic, HIA received the President's Volunteerism and Philanthropy Award (PVPA) from Madam President Halimah Yacob for the Organisation of Good category.

Our Wish List

Food

The Alliance of Guest Workers Outreach (AGWO) is a movement of Hope Initiative Alliance. On Good Friday, AGWO distributed Care Meals to 9,218 guest workers at 113 factory-converted dormitories (FCDs). In the following days, the average distribution has drastically dropped to about 1,300 Care Meals per day due to the shortage of funds. Moreover, additional FCDs have been added to our list as of this writing. As we aim to help more guest workers and reach out to more FCDs, there remains much work to be done.

With $2 on average (on other urgent occasions, owing to large demand, up to $5), we will be able to provide a simple Care Meal for a guest worker. To feed 10,000 guest workers with 2 Care Meals a day, for 20 days, we will require $800,000. Beyond food, we are also looking into supplying other food items, hygiene products and medical supplies.

You may play a part in this project by donating some of the following items for these workers:
- Cup Noodles
- Sugar
- Tea pack & Nescafe
- Biscuits
- Soap bars
- Milk
- Fruits
- Toothpaste
- Hand sanitizer
- Snacks (Potato Chips, Peanuts..)
- Masks
- Etc.

Should you wish to donate, do drop us a call at our Hotline (+65) 6304 3486 to arrange.

Thank you once again for your kind donation.

We are all in this together.
