IASG celebrates the season of giving in conjunction with its 6th anniversary of rendering assistance to foreigners looking to make Singapore home. As part of ongoing Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, members of IASG reached out to the Migrant Workers community this time round, providing meals for our migrant worker friends who have taken the brunt of the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Working with Hope Initiative Alliance under their Alliance of Guest Workers Outreach (AGWO) initiative, IASG managed to feed two migrant worker dormitories in December 2020. Despite the ongoing safety measures in place, though we could not mingle as much as pre-Covid 19 days, hearing their stories only made us even more grateful for their contributions to Singapore and the sacrifices they make every day for our country.
The importance of social integration has often been overlooked by those keen to secure Singapore Permanent Residence and/or Citizenship. Yet, to date, when we analyse the applications of clients, we have helped get approved, more than 85% have embarked on consistent community integration efforts!
I have been reflecting on the things I am most grateful for. Primarily among those is the talented group of employees. Thank you for the work you have done for the organization this year. You have helped us provide award-winning services to our clients. IASG is proud to lead by example and look forward to serving our clients and giving back more in 2021!
As we draw 2020 to a close, on behalf of IASG, we understand how the holidays can seem especially draining this year with all that is going on. We wish you moments of peace amid the difficulties, connections with family and friends even if they cannot be in person, and the warmth of memories from holidays past.
“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning.” – T.S Eliot
I wish all Happy Holidays and may the New Year bring good health, happiness, and good fortune.
