The Cuff Road Project: Give Back To Those Who Built Your Homes
Blogging For A Cause
Honestly, I do admit I don’t bother about what happens to the migrant workers who build our homes, parks and the buildings that make us what we are today.
To me, they will always be fully taken care and there’s still a contract between the SG company and the workers. Although most companies will adhere to their contract, not all are as honest or are as responsible and sadly, they get away severely UNNOTICED.
There are 450 destitute migrant workers that will be dependent on The Cuff Road Project; organised by Transient Workers Count Too (TWC2). These workers, for whatever reason, have been abandoned by their employers and TWC2 hopes to receive enough donations through GIVE.sg, to sustain them.
The Cuff Road Project is an initiative by Transient Workers Count Too (TWC2) and One Singapore – a local campaign to end global poverty – to provide them free nourishment for 450 destitute migrant workers who were duped by their agents, or suffered injuries at work and are now surviving without any wages.
Mini Rambling of Anto: My god..what kind of employer does that? You dont care about your soul right? Karma will get you -_-
Since March 2008, The Cuff Road Project has provided 100,000 meals to thousands of men.
Currently serving 450 meals a day, breakfast, lunch and dinner are available at four participating restaurants. Where each meal costs $2, is supplied 12 times a week.
$2 is just 1x bubble tea ah people..
Take a look at these posters to further illustrate the cost breakdown done by my friend, Stephanie Goh.. Babe, if you’re reading this, CLEVER!
While food cannot substitute wages, the men are comforted by the food and friendships made with volunteers and peers in similar situations.
To sustain the destitute workers until the end of the year, S$70,000 is need for The Cuff Road Project to carry on.
