FAST is honoured to receive the Philippines Presidential Awards 2018 for our significant contributions to the migrant Filipino community in Singapore.
Primarily, the award recognises our contribution for looking after the welfare, personal development, advocacy and in providing a balanced work-life of the Filipino domestic helpers in Singapore.
This is the first time a Singapore voluntary welfare organisation has been bestowed such an award - the Kaanib ng Bayan.
While this award will spur FAST to continue to do more for all domestic helpers of different nationalities who are working in Singapore, I would like to dedicate this award to all our volunteers, supporters, sponsors and partners. Without your strong support and contributions in enabling FAST to carry out its mission, we would not have been able to be where we are today. I thank you for your faith and confidence in FAST and I look forward to your continuing support to carry FAST to the next level of excellence in serving this worthy cause.
