Kindness or Cruelty?

I felt I had to share this with the world. Coca-cola thought that it was doing migrant workers in Singapore a favour by sponsoring a public gesture of appreciation for their hard work in building Singapore. Whether this could be seen as Corporate Social Responsibility or a mere advertising  gimmick, is up to the viewer. In contrast, a Singapore journalist with Al-Jazeera documented the real living and working conditions of migrant construction workers in Singapore. Use this link to decide for yourself, if Coca-cola is being kind or cruel to the usually anonymous foreign worker.

It brought tears to my eyes.
