As an aggregator of support and services amongst our network of hundreds of partners and associates, many of them have responded to this cause. We are helping our partners and other S3P projects to raise support and collect in-kind donations: such as mattresses, comforters, pillows, blankets, towels, clothing, hygiene items, and many more. One hundred (100) sets of these items are ideally required to sustain their needs. Please call our hotline at 6304 3486 before sending these items.
We are also looking at channelling a small allowance or ex gratia to the recipients, as well as meals, medical assistance and necessary items they need for better living conditions.
This effort to aid the homeless community follows our recent SG United Amidst Adversity (CharitiesCaringTogether) initiative, which brought together more than 50 charities and assisted 5,000 beneficiaries through the provision of care packs (as reported by The Straits Times, 26 Mar).
According to 2019 reports, there are over 1,000 homeless people in Singapore. Due to the COVID-19 situation, rough sleepers are now struggling and are highly susceptible to contracting the virus. Your generous giving will impact their lives.
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.
