With $3 on average and $5 at most, we will be able to provide a simple Care Meal for a guest worker. Through your generous giving since Good Friday (10 Apr), we have been able to distribute 313,435 Care Meals across 233 factory-converted dormitories (FCD), as of the writing.

Going forward, we still appeal for your continued support as the Circuit Breaker period has been extended to 1 June 2020. Additional funds are needed to cover and provide meals for the next 32 days (i.e. 32 days x $3 x 2 meals x 10,000 workers = $1.92M.)

The cost per meal has increased from $2 to $3-$5 on average due to price surge and increased demand. The provision of early morning meals for Muslim guest workers during the Ramadan period has also induced the increase of costs.

On top of the daily Care Meals, we also aim to reach more guest workers across an estimated 260 FCDs with essentials items and hygiene products. Thus, please allow us to utilise any excess funds to provide them with holistic care, ex gratia or small allowance, medical and/or mental health assistance. Your generous giving will impact thousands of lives.

We are thankful for our partnership with the Ministry of Manpower and Migrant Workers Centre for engaging us to supply food and essentials to the guest workers. With their invaluable assistance, we have been able to gain access to these dormitories.

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.
