Congratulations to HOME

Today the 15th of August 2006 marks the 4th Anniversary of the Madonna Grotto.

I went on behalf of Migrant Voices to the Siglap Shelter and was thoroughly moved by Bridget, Jolovan, as well as the other people with HOME, the Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics, have done and I was filled with a lot of admiration of their generosity. On behalf of everyone here at Migrant Voices, kudos to you all and do continue your good work. For those of you who might not know, Migrant Voices has been working closely with HOME as we are now holding our TalentTime Competition at both the Serangoon and Siglap Shelters, together with Ruby Pan's Theatre Workshop at the Siglap Shelter. Through these workshops, we have not only taught the residents artistic and life skills through art, I personally have also been many a times, enlightened by their wisdom and am always inspired by Bridget. The learning has been two-ways and it's education that money can't buy. I hope our relationship and partnership will continue to strengthen, and we look forward to holding more programmes with HOME. On this note, I would like to once again Congratulate Bridget, Jolovan and the rest of HOME on the 4th Anniversary of the Madonna Grotto. Although I hope one day, we will see the number of residents go down.

For those of you who are interested in helping Migrant Voices run art programmes for HOME and the rest of the migrant community, do e-mail us at migrantvoices@gmail.com or visit our blog at migrantvoices.blogspot.com.
