Supporting Migrant Workers Through COVID-19 & Beyond
From today until 30 June 2020, 2359 (GMT+8), ALL proceeds made from our online store will go to HOME (Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics), and shipping will be FREE.
With COVID-19 hitting the migrant workers in Singapore particularly badly, much of their unsanitary and congested living conditions that have existed for a long time have been exposed and is under scrutiny of the public eye. We've been guilty of glossing over the ill treatment these migrant workers have suffered, especially after having contributed so much to Singapore's growth. We'd thus like to make a stand in supporting them through these dire times and protecting their human rights, which HOME so graciously fights for.
HOME focuses on humanitarian assistance, case management for migrant workers that need help/advice, advocacy for the rights of migrant workers, and administration in coordinating donations and organising fundraisers. You can read in more detail what they do here, and what the migrant workers are going through here.
Even though it may not be much, we will be covering item costs and shipping costs, and donate 100% of proceeds to HOME. We will be updating weekly on our Instagram story and highlights on the amount amassed, and do a final donation on 1 July! We will update this page with the final donation on 1 July as well.
If you're not able to make a purchase, reading up on the issues that migrant workers face in Singapore is also a great way to start! Being aware is a step in the right direction, and we hope there will come a day when migrant workers will be able to work and live with the same rights we all deserve to have. Thank you for your support! If you have any questions, feel free to contact us here!
