Hari Raya Puasa being a celebratory occasion is celebrated in many Islamic countries. The term Hari Raya is "big (or grand) day of rejoicing". However, this year is especially different as the world continues to battle COVID-19, with many travel restrictions and lockdowns. Thus, these guest workers may experience homesickness, particularly during this festive period.

To make the guest workers in our nation feel more at home, the Alliance of Guest Workers Outreach (AGWO) - a movement of Hope Initiative Alliance - hopes to provide a special treat to about 1,000 guest workers-comprising of Muslims workers and other religious backgrounds. This special treat will include a festive meal, Sarong, prayer mats as well as dates and other celebratory treats. We are also raising funds to cover the transportation cost for the guest workers to travel to the prayer sessions that we will be facilitating.

We hope that the Muslim guest workers will have the chance to celebrate this special occasion here in Singapore despite being far from their families. This initiative is organised with the intention of allowing the workers to feel cared for by us, even while they remain largely confined to their dormitories.

Your donation will certainly bring a smile to the guest workers in Singapore during this Hari Raya Puasa.

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.
