Anowar suffered a workplace injury in Feb 2015. For over a year, he's been in pain and trying to get treatment, but the employer refuses. Even the Ministry of Manpower has not been able to get the employer to pay. Doctors say treatment is urgent otherwise the arm will be useless. TWC2 advanced him the money for the operation, but we're raising money to cover the cost of follow-up treatment and physiotherapy.

About the Charity

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.
