Celebrating Hari Raya with the Guest Workers
Hari Raya Puasa being a celebratory occasion is celebrated in many Islamic countries. The term Hari Raya is "big (or grand) day of rejoicing". However, this year is especially different as the world continues to battle COVID-19, with many travel restrictions and lockdowns. Thus, these guest workers may experience homesickness, particularly during this festive period.
To make the guest workers in our nation feel more at home, the Alliance of Guest Workers Outreach(AGWO)-a movement of Hope Initiative Alliance-hopes to provide a special treat to about 1,000 guest workers-comprising of Muslims workers and other religious background. This special treat will include a festive meal, Sarong, prayer mats as well as dates and other celebratory treats.
We hope that the Muslim guest workers will have the chance to celebrate this special occasion here in Singapore despite being far from their families. This initiative is organised with the intention of allowing the workers to feel cared for by us, even while they remain gazetted.
Your donation will certainly bring a smile to the guest workers in Singapore during this Hari Raya Puasa.
