Foreign Domestic Workers in SG

IMG_3895_jpg.JPG
To celebrate Labour Day this year in 2021, we dedicated the month of May to appreciate the foreign workers who are closest to home; our domestic workers. In partnership with NTUC, The Salvation Army, Big Red Button and many others, we championed a campaign #MayWeCare, where we spent the month of may to create meaningful interactions and build healthy relationships with our foreign domestic workers.

For more information, check out the website (https://www.braveheart.sg/maywecare). Here are the main insights we have gleaned from our research and conversations with organisations actively advocating the cause.
