Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in Singapore, the living conditions and well-being of migrant workers have received increased attention. At the same time, and consequently too, during the country’s first circuit-breaker in 2020, there was an intense flurry of volunteerism and donations among concerned Singaporeans. However, since then, over the past two years, public attention on both migrant workers and voluntary contributions has waxed and waned. With Michael Cheah, executive director of HealthServe, we discuss these phenomena and explore future advocacy and strategies.
