About Campaign

A 34-yr old Bangladeshi migrant worker, Mr Sikdar Rana, was diagnosed with advanced stomach cancer in April 2020. Sikdar's condition is serious and he may not have long to live. He is supported with IV feeding and antibiotics as cancer treatment is not possible. He wishes to see his 6yr old son and wife before he passes on, as well as his mother and brothers. The purpose of this campaign is to raise funds for his medical evacuation to Bangladesh, so that he can see his family for a final goodbye. The evacuation is estimated to cost $48,000. Our fundraising target is $60,000, with the excess to fund any needs that may arise to support his return home. Any unused amount will be channelled to our charity, the Migrant Workers' Assistance Fund, to benefit other migrant brothers.
The Migrant Workers' Centre appeals to your kindness in donating to help fulfil Sikdar's last wish.

About the Charity

The Migrant Workers' Assistance Fund (MWAF) is the humanitarian charity of the Migrant Workers' Centre (MWC). MWC assists migrant workers redress employment disputes and furthers education and awareness among them of their employment rights. MWC also promotes migrant workers' social integration as well as their harmonious co-existence with Singaporeans at the workplace and beyond. As case assistance for migrant workers is frequently accompanied by follow-on issues with housing, food and other subsistence costs, the MWAF was set up in 2012 (IPC-certified in 2014) to fund all humanitarian and emergency assistance rendered to MWC case clients - if their employers fail to discharge the duty to care for and protect their own workers. The MWAF allows the MWC to cover and protect vulnerable workers up till their outstanding matters are resolved and concluded, and is a key resource for the MWC in providing proper and adequate help to distressed and victimized migrant workers in Singapore.
