Parti Liyani (Yani), a migrant domestic worker, arrived at HOME's shelter in December 2016. She was accused of theft, and has spent almost four years at HOME's shelter, waiting for the conclusion of her case. During this time she was not allowed to work, and thus had to rely on HOME to provide her with shelter, food, and financial assistance. She was also not allowed to leave the country, and had no means of seeing her family back home.

On 4 September 2020, Yani, was fully acquitted at the High Court by Justice Chan Seng Onn, of these charges of theft.

HOME has journeyed with Yani during the course of the investigations, the trial and appeal. She steadfastly maintained her innocence throughout. We are glad that justice has prevailed and that Yani's conviction has been fully overturned.

We are glad that Yani has chosen to fight for her innocence, and refute the charges made against her by her former employers. We are pleased to have been able to support her, and in the process, get to know her kind, helpful, and spirited personality.

Yani intends to start a food business once she is back home in Indonesia. As she was unable to earn any income for the past four years, your donations will help her rebuild her life and realise her dreams, and allow her to support herself and her family in a sustained way.

A big thank you!

About the Charity

HOME (Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics) is a charitable organisation with Institution of Public Character status. Since 2004, we have been dedicated to improving the welfare and upholding the rights of migrant workers in Singapore.

Migrant workers play a vital role in contributing to Singapore. They take on low-waged jobs as domestic workers or in the construction, marine, manufacturing, service and conservancy sectors. Their work is often dangerous and precarious.

We assist migrant workers who suffer abuse and exploitation. Unpaid salaries, excessive working hours, work injuries, physical and psychological abuse are some of the common problems these workers face. Some of them may also be victims of human trafficking.

We run a shelter for domestic workers, helpdesks for domestic workers and male migrant workers. We also offer legal assistance, health education and vocational training to the workers. In 2016, over 2,000 migrant workers received assistance from us. And about 2,000 domestic workers have sat through our skills training courses.

HOME works with government agencies, civic groups, corporations and other community partners to realise our vision in creating an inclusive society that stands for justice, fairness and equality.
