Westlite Accommodation has organized a series of events and activities to celebrate Deepavali with its resident workers from October 31 to November 4.
Resumption of physical leisure
The celebration of Deepavali also resulted in the resumption of physical leisure activities and field entertainment in the dormitories.
This was a “gradual return” to pre-Covid leisure activities, Westlite Accommodation said in a press release.
The accommodation manager said the festivities took place in all five Westlite Accommodation purpose-built dorms and four Westlite Accommodation Quick Built Dorms.
In total, the activities reached over 28,000 resident workers of over 1,000 employers.
Distribution of gift bags
Individually wrapped gift bags containing food, snacks, mobile recharge cards and vouchers were distributed to all Westlite residents on November 4.
The gift bags were sponsored by Ajmal Group, Centurion Global, Geenet ISO Delight, Singtel, Starhub and TPG Telecom, for an approximate total value of S $ 750,000.
Deepavali festivities in Westlite dorms
Resident migrant workers designed and crafted auspicious and colorful Rangoli floors, also known as Kolam in Tamil.
Resident workers could also use the MyMMA mobile app developed by Westlite Accommodation to send electronic greeting cards and virtual photo frames with Deepavali themes to connect with loved ones.
Resident workers also had a chance to win prizes in virtual games and physical events. Some physical games include talent contests and soda can roll.
