To make the guest workers in our nation feel more at home, the Alliance of Guest Workers Outreach a movement of Hope Initiative Alliance will be celebrating Deepavali with the guest workers on 7 November by distributing meals and organising religious services and carnival event which will be held in a Recreational Centre with up to 1000 guest workers attending. For the carnival, game booths will be set up to entertain the guest workers.
We are glad to be partnering with the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), Jurong Town Corporation (JTC) and Hindu Endowments Board (HEB) for these initiatives.
We look forward to your partnership; your kind giving will enable us to help the guest workers feel like Singapore is their home away from home, especially during this festive season.
About the Charity
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.
