HIA's efforts in helping marginalised communities, such as migrant workers during COVID-19, were also recognised in the Parliament on 21 March 2023 by Minister for Manpower & Second Minister for Trade and Industry, Dr Tan See Leng and Senior Minister of State in the Ministry of Manpower, and Ministry of Defence, Mr Zaqy Mohamad.

As an inter-racial, inter-religious and inter-cultural organisation, Hope Initiative Alliance (HIA) played an important role in ensuring that the spiritual needs of our workers were met. They organised congregational prayers and religious services for workers of different faiths in the dormitories and recreation centres. When workers were unable to return home during their festive holidays, HIA helped to spread cheer by distributing festive care packs and meals. Many of their volunteers came from Christian groups and I remember them coming together to deliver breakfast at 4am during Ramadan – at the height of the pandemic in 2020.
