COVID-19: our response
In the midst of the global pandemic, we have not stopped working to find ways to make a difference in the community. Find out more below on what we have done!
Distribution of Carepacks
With permission from MCCY/MOM Inter-agency taskforce, TI, together with SG Accident and Help Centre (SGAHC), operated a volunteer and logistics base from April to Jun 2020 to support and care for the migrant workers during the COVID-19 Circuit Breaker.
TI Volunteers packed care packs, daily essentials and meals for migrant workers living in various domitories, SportsSG Stadiums and in the community.
In total we packed and delivered:
10,000 Care Packs
6,600 Hot Meals
5,500 Snack Packs
Supporting our Teachers: TeachUP
In Feburary, our TI Volunteers, who are educators that were served with us in our TeachUP programme, initiated the distribution of Care Packs for teachers in Singapore through Parent Support Group channels.
5,000 carepacks were packed and distributed to support and encourage our teachers as they continue to serve as essential workers in the schools.

Loving Rough Sleepers: Home Away From Home
On March 18, Malaysia declared a nationwide Movement Control Order which affected many Malaysians who were working in Singapore. TI supported this LoveSingapore initiative and rallied its volunteers to comb the streets daily for a week from midnight to past 3am to look for Malaysian workers who were rough sleeping.
These workers were directed to Transit Point, a shelter by New Hope Community Services that was opened up to house these workers until their employers were able to find proper accommodation for them.
Our TI Volunteers also helped to support the daily operations at the shelter such as registration, temperature screening, cleaning, laundry, meal distribution, packing and sorting of donated items.
