The Alliance of Guest Workers Outreach (AGWO) a movement of Hope Initiative Alliance (HIA) is organising a virtual live event, The Road Ahead... Together! in celebration of the National Day together with the guest workers and the foreign domestic workers. This event will be streamed live on AGWO Facebook and YouTube account for the guest workers to watch the performances done by our special guests.

The pandemic has affected many of the guest workers, especially those who have been confined to poor living conditions in cramped dormitories and are unable to come back home to see their families. And therefore, this event is also a way to appreciate the sacrifice of our guest workers who have made such invaluable contributions to Singapore and to recognise their courage, strength, and resilience.

With the current COVID-19 restrictions, AGWO is partnering with the Assurance, Care and Engagement Group of the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) and Vasantham Central to celebrate the National Day with our guest workers. Many are homesick and also miss gathering with their friends in Singapore owing to the pandemic measures that have been in place for more than a year. Through this event, it is hoped that such a gesture of care towards them would bring them some much-needed cheer amidst the gloom. There will also be a lucky draw session where the guest workers will stand a chance to win cash prizes.

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.
