Fighting Covid-19

As we fight COVID-19, we seek to engage and empower Singapore's migrant workers in their journeys toward better health and a better tomorrow.

Together with other health institutions, we started an initiative called My Brother SG which aims to ensure a nationally coordinated effort in RCCE (risk communication and community engagement).

Our efforts include health literate resources, face-to-face workshops, and social media engagement.

My Brother SG shares health tips and news for migrant workers on Facebook.

 

Workers are engaged through:

  • Regular Facebook Live sessions hosted by medical doctors to answer health-related questions 

  • Informative comics and infographics

  • Mythbuster videos which address common misunderstandings about COVID-19 and other topics

  • Interactive contests and health quizzes

face-to-face engagements with migrant workers

We conduct workshops to empower workers to be health ambassadors within their own communities.

 

Through our Kitesong art therapy workshop, we share hope amidst this time of crisis.

Workers wrote their dreams on kites as a symbol of staying hopeful

training for face-to-face engagements

 

We create RCCE training videos for those interested in conducting face-to-face engagements with migrant workers.

When Wai Jia felt called to return to clinical medicine to volunteer at the migrant dormitories, feeling the tensions on the ground made her realize the need for health communications in this outbreak, to allay the fears and tensions of Singapore's migrant workers.
