“Heartbeat”, our next orientation session for potential volunteers is scheduled for Tuesday, 10 March 2020, at 7:30 pm. If you are interested in helping with the cause, please email the Administration Officer at info@twc2.org.sg with the header “interested in volunteering”. For more information about volunteering roles, please click here. If the Covid-19 risk is over, we will revert to a physical meeting, if not, the event will be live-streamed. We will let event attendees know closer to the date.

Transient Workers Count Too’s annual general meeting is scheduled for Sunday, 19 April 2020. Registration starts at 2pm and the AGM proper starts at 3pm. The venue will be Seminar Room 3.1 at the Lee Kong Chian School of Business, Singapore Managment University — the building at the junction of Stamford Road and Victoria Street, next to the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd. While memberships can be renewed at the door during the registration hour, we urge members to renew their memberships in advance to avoid a rush. Please contact <info@twc2.org.sg> regarding renewal.

In the light of the Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (DORSCON) being raised to orange, in response to the Covid-19 risk, TWC2 wishes to advise as follows, with respect to visiting our office: Our office will remain open so that we can continue to provide assistance to migrant workers. However, we encourage all to consider using phone and electronic communication if at all possible instead of physical visits. If the matter is such that a physical visit is necessary, we will (a) request that you wash your hands with soap at the bathroom before entering our premises; (b) declare when you were last in China; (c) sit at some distance from our staff or volunteers when in conversation. TWC2 cleans our tables, doorknobs and other surfaces more than once a day with antiseptic, to maximise safety for everyone concerned.
