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.
