How Your Donation Makes a Difference

About Us

Hope Initiative Alliance is an inter-racial and inter-religious alliance of social service organisations, civil groups and corporations that seeks to eradicate social inequalities across various facets of society.

As an aggregator of support and services amongst our network of hundreds of partners and associates, HIA seeks to work closely with them to help the guest workers, homeless, elderly, people with disabilities, the poor and needy communities, especially amidst the COVID-19 situation.

The Alliance of Guest Workers Outreach (AGWO), a movement of the Hope Initiative Alliance, seeks to provide holistic care, medical assistance, distribute Care Meals and other essentials to the guest workers housed in factory-converted dormitories.

Apart from the guest worker community, rough sleepers are another group-at-risk during this trying period. We are working with our partners to advocate temporal Safe Sound Sleeping Place (S3P) throughout the circuit breaker period, or even longer. We are also looking at channelling a small allowance or ex gratia to sustain their needs. In-kind donations are also greatly needed to facilitate their needs in temporary shelters.

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.
