Let’s show our support for FDWs through the uplifting power of words!
Times are still challenging for all of us and that’s especially so for foreign domestic workers (FDWs) who have spent these last weeks and months within Singapore households supporting the smooth running of everyone’s more home-based life. Some FDWs are still unable to go out or see friends on their off-days and many cannot travel back home to visit their loved ones. FDWs have had more work on their hands too, with everyone staying at home.
It’s so important that we recognise and voice our appreciation for these amazing women who support the smooth running of our homes and lives, in spite of the challenges. Showing we care and value their contribution is a wonderful way to lift spirits and to thank them as we mark International Domestic Workers Day.
We have clapped for our frontliners, and rallied together to help our migrant worker brothers, now how can we sprinkle some kindness and show support for our FDWs?
It’s easy! Simple words of encouragement and appreciation can go a long way towards making someone’s day. And so, to mark the month of International Domestic Workers’ Day, Aidha has launched a special virtual message board open for EVERYONE to leave notes of support and appreciation for all FDWs.
At Aidha, we stand together with FDWs and we believe that every woman has a right to determine her own future. Let’s celebrate the strength, courage and the important contributions FDWs have made!
And calling all FDWs! This is for you too! Send us your messages of appreciation and encouragement to your friends!
Check out the instructions below to learn how you can show your support.
Big thank you to all the strong women who are working as domestic helpers here. You play an important role in our community

My helper was like my second mom. She was with me since I was a toddler and was my companion at home (I’m an only child). I miss you aunty!! I hope you are safe and healthy.
Thank you to all helpers for taking care of Singapore’s families! You are powerful women!
Thanks for putting up with my FIL and his many quirks. Without you, the family wouldn’t be able to function as well. I know it’s been hard not seeing your sister the last few months, hopefully things will get better and you can see her soon.
Thank you for coming here to work and appreciate you all for being hardworking, caring, honest and sincere.
You are all very strong and committed ladies. Thank you for your hard work and dedication in providing assistance to the families here. Much love to all!

Here’s to all the domestic helpers here in sg. You made the difficult but noble decision to leave your families in order to provide for them. It’s inspiring and admirable.

Thank you for all the sacrifices you have made. It is not easy and no amount of thank you-s are ever enough. My hope for you is that you will know how loved and important you are, and let no one/words ever bring you down!
Without your care, effort, and hardwork, many families would not be able to function as smoothly as they do. Thank you for sacrificing so much and being a part of the social fabric in Singapore.
Thank you so much for your hard work and help! This must be an extremely difficult time for you now but this will pass! Soon enough, things will return to normal. I really appreciate all that you’ve done for us! Let’s get through this together! ❤️
We thank you for caring for our family when we can’t. What will we do without you. To everyone reading this, appreciate your helpers!!!

For as long as I can remember, my parents have employed FDWs to help them manage us 4 siblings. I remember whenever I cried, my “auntie” would be the first to comfort me! Thank you to all FDWs for all your hard work and love! You truly deserve the world.
Sincere thank you to all foreign domestic workers who have dedicated themselves in providing for others while being away from their own. It is something that we should always be aware of.

My helper played an important role in my childhood. She is now with another family but I wish her all the best. No amount of thanks can make up for her hard work for our family.
Thank you to all helpers who have put in so much effort in helping us run our day-to-day lives smoothly. Never stop dreaming big and never give up on your goals.
Thank you for everything that you’ve done for us – it’s not easy being this far away from your family and loved ones and I’m amazed at your strength, especially during this crisis period. I hope that you and your loved ones remain safe during this period.

Kudos to all FDWs! Whether through Covid-19 or other challenges you have my deepest respect for the responsibilities you take on in supporting your families, the hard work your job entails, and the personal sacrifices you make by being away from home and loved ones. Despite it all I am constantly amazed by your positivity and resilience. In awe always.
A big and warm thank you to all the amazing women who help so many households in Singapore. They made the difficult decision to leave their countries to support their families and they contribute so much to the community.

Emelda you were and still are our family!! You cared for our children, like your own, took care of us but also our family members. During that time, you continued to work on your long term goals which is the best way to support your family.
