As a charity, Institute of Public Character (IPC) and member of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) helping the low income cleaning attendants, the Restroom Association (Singapore) seeks to improve the quality of life of these cleaning attendants.
In 2008, the son of a restroom cleaning attendant wrote to Straits Times urging for higher wages. He shared that his father's monthly pay of $700 in 1995 was barely enough to support the family and 13 years later in 2008, his basic pay was $750.
Your donations will be used to purchase Grocery Vouchers and organise appreciation activities such as tribute lunches for cleaning attendants either at the annual LOO (Let's Observe Ourselves) Awards (www.toilet.org.sg/looawards.html) or community and school events.
