Empowering Migrant Workers

During the COVID-19 outbreak, Kitesong Global had the privilege to engage and empower Singapore's migrant workers in their journeys toward better health.

Together with other health institutions and partners, we created multilingual, multimodal health literate resources, face-to-face workshops, and social media activities to engage migrant workers.

Today, the effort has snowballed into a nationwide platform called "My Brother SG" which aims to ensure a nationally coordinated effort in RCCE (risk communication and community engagement) for better health among migrant workers.

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.
