Donate a 3G phone to migrant workers
About Campaignends 15 Mar 2017, 12 AM
By April 2017, mobile phone signals in the 2G band will be cut off. Foreign workers with low-cost 2G phones will no longer have the means to call anyone for help should they face problems, e.g. injury, illness, salary issues or urgent unfair deportation. With their low salaries, they may find it hard to purchase new 3G phones. TWC2 is hoping for donations of used 3G phones (with chargers), or cash donations to enable us to buy secondhand phones for them. For cash donations, scroll down for easy options. If you're donating used phones, call our office (6247 7001) and they will advise you when and where you can drop off your donation.
Transient Workers Count Too extends help to low-wage migrant workers who have been injured, unpaid, or abused by employers. Low-wage migrant workers constitute about one in five persons in Singapore. Doing jobs like construction, sanitation and domestic work, they form the backbone of our society and economy. Yet they are often treated badly by employers. Sometimes, salaries are not paid, rest days denied, housed in unsafe and unhygienic places, physically and psychologically abused, and when injured, abandoned without adequate medical treatment or left with no income. Migrant workers have no family in Singapore to fall back on for help. Doing low-wage work, they do not have savings to tide them through difficulties. TWC2 tries to help by extending a lifeline to those in need.
