While Singaporeans who celebrate the festival would be able to spend time with their loved ones, that might not be the case for migrant workers here, in light of Covid-19 travel restrictions.

To make the occasion special for these workers, welfare group Itsrainingraincoats is organising an event where food like pizzas and samosas will be distributed to them.

Pizzas to be distributed to unsuspecting workers on 21 Nov

According to the non-profit organisation, around 200 cars will be making rounds all over Singapore to distribute the food to “unsuspecting” workers.

A similar initiative was organised in 2018, and the workers’ joyous expressions after receiving the treats were simply priceless.
