During this Covid-19 Circuit Breaker (CB), St Andrew’s Cathedral (SAC) works with Crisis Relief Alliance (CRA) to bring help and hope to migrant workers. (Updated 22 May 2020)
CRA is a non-profit organisation registered in Singapore; it works to bring relief to communities in crisis especially in healthcare, humanitarian and essential services (https://www.facebook.com/cra.org.sg/)
The work is in factory-converted dormitories, housing workers who are mainly Indian and Bangladeshi men. The CRA healthcare team of doctors and nurses, provides the medical support needed in the dormitories during this virus pandemic. Volunteers from the Cathedral serve in Distribution Teams to bring necessary supplies to the workers. For the CB period, now extended to 1 June 2020, SAC is committed to serving 6,618 workers living in 64 dormitories.
SAC’s Distribution Team works to provide each worker with the following:
- a whole fruits package per week
- a snack pack per week (17-23/5: coffee, canned food and dates)
- 2 reusable masks, sanitizer
- a listening ear (Tamil)
- on-line English lessons
We thank members who have supported this work by:
