The Singapore Corporate Counsel Association (SCCA) group Peers organized a charity drive in December for local migrant workers. The event took place on 22 December 2018 at the 79 Robinson Road construction site, and involved various in-house legal counsel and their friends stepping forward to distribute festive season gifts, which were specially gathered and gift-wrapped, to almost 500 migrant construction workers.
Many of the hundreds of workers who attended expressed their surprise and sincere gratitude at being remembered and included in the event.
The SCCA was especially proud to support the Its Raining Raincoats initiative, which is a cause in aid of migrant workers set up by association in-house counsel member Dipa Swaminathan, assistant general counsel of Singtel. The event was part of a wider chain of similar initiatives taking place across Singapore in December.
