By Olivia Siong, Channel NewsAsia, 13 May 2013

From June 1, there will be a new telephone helpline (1800-FDW-HELP or 1800-339-4357) for foreign domestic workers to call for any work-related enquiries.

The Foreign Domestic Worker Association for Social Support & Training, or FAST in short, made the announcement at its Mother’s Day workshop yesterday (May 12).

For a start, the 24-hour helpline will be available in English and Bahasa Indonesia.

The line will be manned by trained staff, volunteers and counsellors, and callers’ personal particulars will be kept confidential.
