Heart at the Movie 2017
About Campaignends 03 Dec 2017, 11:59 PM
On Sunday, 3 December 2017, TWC2 will host migrant workers to an afternoon of movie, food and great fun.
It will be a rare treat for these workers who are far away from family and friends.
Buy a ticket for a worker to attend the event. Each ticket helps TWC2 to provide services such as:
- A soup kitchen in Little India that provides free meals to destitute workers
- Medical services & emergency shelter for sick and injured workers
We welcome you to join us at the event as well! If you are buying a ticket for yourself, please drop us an email at [email protected] to tell us where to send the tickets to. Otherwise, we will assume that all purchased tickets are to be donated to the workers. (Note that you cannot donate anonymously if you wish to come, otherwise we will not be able to track your donation.)
There are only 250 seats at The Projector cinema, but we are hoping to sell at least twice the number of tickets.
Part of the excess funds collected will go towards other social support and mental-health initiatives for the workers, such as the monthly outings organised by our Discover Singapore group of volunteers to places of attraction like Gardens by the Bay and St John's island.
The workers invited to attend come from amongst those whom TWC2 is actively helping, as well as domestic workers who are members of the Indonesian Family Network and Filipino Family Network.
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.
