Geylang Adventures

We explore the community and understand it as an ecosystem with different groups of people co-existing with one another. With our love for preserving this delicate ecosystem, we seek to support the various groups by doing a range of projects. Come discover more of what we do.

Migrant Mission

Taking time to appreciate our nation builders

Migrant workers are a huge part of the Geylang community. Most of them have built the infrastructure we enjoy in Singapore brick by brick. Yet, we shun them and treat them as outsiders, even to the point of marginalization. To show our gratitude, we organize projects to work with the migrant worker community in one small way or another.

For a few hours, Transient Workers Count Too - TWC2 dayspace was transformed into a barbershop offering free haircuts. All the workers whom we cut hair for were either injured or had issues with their company, salary problems.

Also met Poulash, who became an expert in cutting from practicing on his friends! This guy definitely cuts with a flair!

Big shoutout to our pool of volunteer barbers who have came a long way since learning how to cut hair!

In order to confirm and verify complaints on housing and catering we received from a group of Bangladeshi workers, the MWC concurrently visited two walk-up apartment units in Geylang (where they were housed) in the early hours of 13 August. We found the living conditions at both units to have fallen below the requirements set by various migrant worker housing authorities. We also collected evidence of potentially serious health and safety risks to the occupants of both units. We have reported our observations and provided photo documentation to the Ministry of Manpower and understand that the authorities are conducting investigations into the matter, in addition to ordering the relocation of the workers to proper approved dormitories and the immediate rectification of their food catering situation. We urge all migrant workers made to face similar housing and food issues to notify us immediately for assistance. We are contactable around the clock via our Helpline at 6536 2692. Our Helpline is operated in all the major migrant worker native languages and in the event of urgent or emergency cases, our officers will endeavour to get to the callers right away. We understand that some migrant workers might not want to come forward for fear of reprisals from errant employers - we assure you that your privacy and confidentiality will be protected in all situations.
