Join us! Come along to the screening at The Projector with your helper, or shout her some tickets to enjoy it with her friends.
Either way, make sure you get there early (from 5pm) to enjoy a free glass of Mumm Champagne (thank you Pernod Ricard!) and perhaps hear a few local stories before the movie starts rolling at 6pm.
All proceeds from this event will be donated to HOME (Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics), to help them continue the great work they do to support helpers in Singapore. Additional donations to HOME are also welcome on the night!
The documentary: Foreign domestic workers take on the mammoth task of managing households and looking after the families of Singapore day after day. They keep our kids safe, nurtured, and smiling, and most importantly, they make them feel loved when mum and dad can’t be there.
While doing all this, they also manage to include ‘keeping the place tidier than you lot ever will’ in their job description, and many prepare better meals than a Masterchef wannabe. In most cases, they do all this with a smile while longing for the families they’ve left behind at home.
In short, we’ll never fully comprehend the sacrifices they’ve made to be here, but we are eternally grateful.
