The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases are high among migrant workers in Singapore. In partnership with the Singapore government, we are extending our support to migrant workers and helping curb further transmission of the virus by distributing a total of 300,000 care packs to migrant workers.
P&G volunteers spent a Saturday afternoon preparing care packages and were joined by guests of honor, Ms. Josephine Teo, Minister for Manpower and Second Minister for Home Affairs, and Ms. Low Yen Ling, Mayor of South West District and Senior Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Manpower and Ministry of Education.
“P&G is a valuable partner, collaborating with us to contribute to the community. In such challenging times, partnerships across private and public sectors build strong bonds of support to support and uplift the vulnerable,” Mayor Low said.
The care packs include essential personal health and hygiene products such as Oral-B toothbrushes, Gillette razors, and Head & Shoulders and Pantene shampoos. P&G Singapore will also provide household cleaning products to more than 1,000 dormitories to help ensure a clean and safe environment for migrant workers.
P&G Singapore has been working with long-standing partner organizations to support communities and those affected by this global pandemic. We have donated an additional 3,000 care packs to vulnerable families and frontline workers and 500 sets of cleaning products to social service agencies and preschools. We have also launched a fundraiser with each dollar matched by the company for the National Council for Social Services. The fund aims to provide additional support and relief to vulnerable individuals and families, including healthcare workers, frontline workers and volunteers.
