Representatives from FWD, Surer and FAST

FWD Singapore ("FWD") along with its business partner, local InsurTech start-up Surer, paid homage to foreign domestic workers on Labour Day weekend by giving them specially-assembled care packs in a community event co-organised with Foreign Domestic Worker Association for Social Support and Training (FAST).

Each care pack is worth $50 and comprises useful items such as mobile prepaid cards, supermarket vouchers and headphones. All 1,000 care packs will be distributed to the helpers at FAST hub at Chin Cheng Avenue over the next few weekends, starting 2 May.

The care packs were assembled by volunteers from FWD and its business partner, local insurtech start-up Surer earlier.

Khor Kee Eng, Chief Executive Officer, FWD Singapore, said, “Singapore is home to many foreign domestic workers who have been caring for us and working hard during the COVID-19 pandemic. So, on Labour Day weekend, we want to give these unsung heroes a reason to smile and celebrate living with a small token of our sincere appreciation.”

Derren Teo, Co-founder, Surer, added, “Surer is pleased to be able to play a part in this meaningful activity with FWD and FAST. This takes on greater meaning for Surer, in light of our partnership with FWD that will enable the distribution of bespoke FWD insurance coverage for employers of foreign domestic workers – an exciting and unprecedented initiative that we will be announcing in more details soon.”

William Chew, Chief Executive Director of FAST, said, "We are heartened to work with FWD insurance and their partner Surer in spreading cheer to the migrant female workers in Singapore this Labour Day. This CSR effort is very much welcomed initiative as it comes at a challenging time while we are all on the road to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to having more such future partnership with FWD insurance and any other corporates who shares our mission in supporting the foreign domestic workers in Singapore."
