How Your Donation Makes a Difference
$30 pays for a week's meal under TWC2's The Cuff Road Project (TCRP). In 10 years of TCRP (2008 to 2018), we have served a total of one million meals.
When workers see our caseworkers for their salary or injury problems, they often ask for help to top-up their EZ link cards and telco pre-paid cards. $50 helps pay for both.
Donate a week's meal for two workers under TCRP.
Provide EZ link and phone card top-ups for two workers.

The cases we assist in sometimes result in heartwarming stories such as this one between Ethan and Feroz:
Your contribution helps TWC2 to keep doing what we do.
Lunch with Heart 2019 is TWC2's annual fundraising event. This year, it was successfully held on Sun 8 Dec.
250 male and female migrant workers enjoyed a buffet lunch, performances, goodie bags and lucky draw prizes.
Even though the event is over, we still hope to reach our online fundraising target of $25,000 this year.
This will help us cover our costs of holding the event, and more importantly provide the direct services to needy migrant workers in the year ahead.
Our daily free meals for workers with no income, transport subsidy for travel to hospitals / MOM, and emergency medical treatment are just some of the things we help pay for.
These services don't just help the workers directly, they also serve to inform the advocacy work we do, which helps to push for changes in policy that solves the workers' problems permanently.
Please lend us a hand!
We are grateful that you are able to support the work we do.
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.
