S’poreans give S$345,000 to help foreign workers after Covid-19 cases spike in dormitories called ‘squalid’ by some

The increased spotlight on the plight of foreign workers and their vulnerability in the Covid-19 crisis has led to an outpouring of donations from Singaporeans despite economic hard times caused by the coronavirus.

Several fundraising campaigns have smashed their targets within 24 hours, raising a total of S$345,000 in just a few days.

Mr Ethan Guo, the general manager of Transient Workers Count Too (TWC2), set up a fundraiser on the night of April 5 when it was reported that the Covid-19 situation was beginning to affect a large number of foreign workers in dormitories. He started receiving messages from people asking what they could do to help.
