AGWO Singapore’s National Day Dedicated to Guest Workers and Foreign Domestic Workers
The Alliance of Guest Workers Outreach (AGWO)—a movement of Hope Initiative Alliance (HIA)—is organising a virtual live event, The Road Ahead… Together! in celebration of the National Day together with the guest workers and the foreign domestic workers. This event will be streamed live on AGWO Facebook and YouTube account for the guest workers to watch the performances done by our special guests.
The pandemic has affected many of the guest workers, especially those who have been confined to poor living conditions in cramped dormitories and are unable to come back home to see their families. And therefore, this event is also a way to appreciate the sacrifice of our guest workers who have made such invaluable contributions to Singapore and to recognise their courage, strength, and resilience.
With the current COVID-19 restrictions, AGWO is partnering with the Assurance, Care and Engagement Group of the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) and Vasantham Central to celebrate the National Day with our guest workers. Many are homesick and also miss gathering with their friends in Singapore owing to the pandemic measures that have been in place for more than a year. Through this event, it is hoped that such a gesture of care towards them would bring them some much-needed cheer amidst the gloom. There will also be a lucky draw session where the guest workers will stand a chance to win cash prizes.
