How Your Donation Makes a Difference
10 dollars buy four meals for jobless workers.
50 dollars enable us to top up two workers' EZ-Link transport cards, so they can get to hospital appointments.
A visit to a hospital's emergency department costs about $110. Your donation will help one worker when he's in need.
To house an injured, jobless worker costs about $250 per month. Your donation gives shelter to one worker in pain.
Any donation, small or large, is appreciated. Volunteers can't be present every day. Social workers are essential and they have to be paid. Your donation helps.
Thank you for donating.
