The festive cheer of the Lunar New Year was shared with our foreign worker friends through the distribution of festive packs and warm greetings from Minister for Manpower Mrs Josephine Teo and Second Minister for Manpower Dr Tan See Leng during their visit to Westlite Tuas Ave 2 Quick Built Dormitory (QBD) today.
Accompanying them were Mr Roland Ng, president of Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SCCCI) and other community partners who have sponsored over 113,600 mandarin oranges to various foreign worker dormitories.
Mr Xu Heng, a worker at a factory expressed, “ I am very happy to celebrate Chinese New Year with my friends and am grateful that the ministers came down to wish us!”
Many community partners banded together with the ACE Group to come up with various initiatives ranging from mini bazaars to calligraphy workshops as part of the CNY celebrations for our migrant worker friends.
We are grateful by the show of support from all our community partners in making this festive occasions an enjoyable one for our foreign worker friends.
A happy Lunar New Year to all of our migrant worker friends and may the days ahead be filled with immense joy and positivity!
