Bringing Light to the Migrant Workers this Deepavali

This year, the celebration of Deepavali will take on a different tone for most, as they find themselves confounded with social distancing measures as a result of the pandemic. For instance, although the famous yearly Little India light up remains the same, other festivities have gone online, such as the Deepavali Festival Village.

While many Hindus in Singapore will still proceed with the celebrations — albeit with smaller gatherings — our migrant workers, a large number of whom also observe the festival, are still largely confined to their dormitories.
