Uplifting the Lives of Migrant Domestic Workers

Migrant Domestic Workers (MDW) engaged in a friendly futsal challenge on 7 April, thanks to XM's sponsorship of USD 1,000 to the Singapore Red Cross (SRC) Community Health on Wheels (CHoW) programme. 

Held at The Cage, Kallang on 7 April, the futsal challenge garnered the support of 15 people, along with some volunteers and SRC employees. The futsal challenge enabled the MDW to relieve the pressures of their daily work life while enhancing their mental well-being.

"It was the first time that I played futsal. It was enjoyable! I am grateful! Thank you, Red Cross, for another sports event that improves our physical health," said Narcylin Serrano.

"As it was my first time playing futsal, I didn't know how to play it initially. After learning how to play it, I enjoyed it. It was tiring but fun. It enabled us to make new friends too. Thank you, Red Cross, and I look forward to another ball game!" Marvielyn Sabben said.

After the friendly futsal challenge, MDW also received specially curated care packages comprising tea bags, beverages, toiletries, masks and cooling towels kindly sponsored by XM.

"Thank you so much for the care packs. Besides being useful, it helps us save some budget," said Donna Payos. 

XM shared their motivations and thoughts about supporting the CHoW programme. 

"Our motivation for supporting the CHoW programme is rooted in our commitment to corporate social responsibility and our desire to make a positive impact on the communities. XM recognises the importance of giving back to society. By supporting charitable initiatives like CHoW, we look forward to actively engaging with local communities and contributing to their well-being." XM Team.

"We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation towards the SRC Team, for the opportunity and the trust in us. We are happy that this campaign ran smoothly, and it is very heartwarming to witness the joy of the migrants enjoying the curated care packages and participating in the futsal games." XM Team.

SRC is appreciative of partners who have been supporting its local humanitarian programmes. Together, we can bring aid and uplift the lives of the people in our community.
