In May 2014, FAST set up the FDW Befrienders Clubhouse to provide another platform for FDWs to spend their time meaningfully during their rest days. Since 1 June 2014, more than 5,000 FDWs have signed up as members each paying a token annual membership fee. The FDWs can celebrate their birthdays, join fitness classes, get fit at the gym, baking and learn how to play musical instruments, access the library/computer lab to skype with their loved ones, watch movies at the recreation room, sing karaoke, cooking classes at the culinary centre, listen to talks on financial planning and self-improvement. The Clubhouse offers a good platform for the FDWs to mingle and make new friends.
