This would be an important step towards ensuring food safety and security for them.

Join us as we launch our campaign, “Respect Our Food Rights”, which is jointly organised by HealthServe and CARE. Aimed to shed light and raise awareness regarding access to decent and quality food for migrant construction workers (MCWs) in Singapore, we collaborated with 60 workers who shared stories with us regarding poor quality food given to them by catering companies. See you there!
