In line with the festive spirit, ONE helped put a smile on the faces of the hard-working foreign men and women who have made “The Lion City” their home. Throughout the week, several representatives from ONE distributed donations and hand-wrapped gifts to the workers.
Formed in 2015 by Dipa Swaminathan, It’s Raining Raincoats is a non-profit organization that spreads kindness to foreigner workers.
After seeing laborers at a construction site using garbage bags as makeshift raincoats, Swaminathan was moved to help act as a voice for the migrant worker communities.
From distributing leftover food to introducing yoga sessions for the workers, It’s Raining Raincoats has worked with different institutions to help normalize interactions between Singaporeans and migrant workers.
Colin Wee, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility at ONE Championship, thanked the migrant workers for their contributions and spoke about his team’s experience on LinkedIn.
“Today, we had the opportunity and privilege to give a smile to someone! Over the past few weeks, our team collected donations and tastefully wrapped gifts for migrant workers living in Singapore,” he said.
“We had the chance to donate the gifts to 650 beneficiaries with organizing NGO, It’s Raining Raincoats. Every gift counts as a gesture of appreciation for your tireless efforts in Singapore! Thank you It’s Raining Raincoats and ONE Championship for the support!”
In the meantime, The Home Of Martial Arts returns to action on 10 January for ONE: A NEW TOMORROW at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand.
