About Campaignends 31 Mar 2016, 12 AM
“Singapore was my dream place to work but on July 7, 2015, my life changed. That day I fell from a platform 3.5m up and fractured my arm severely. After surgery, I knew I would not be able to work for a long time, and I become anxious about my situation. Then I heard about a charity that could help me.
The staff at HealthServe has been very patient in helping me resolve my case. Quickly, I felt a sense of peace. There are many people like me who are injured at work and don’t know what to do as a foreign worker but we receive help from HealthServe that provides us free meals, free shelter, and medical care to help us recover. What’s more, as we don’t understand English, the HealthServe brothers would go out of their way and tirelessly provide translation. It’s unbelievable how much help they have given it! Through them, I feel the warmth of home. They don’t have an obligation to do this for me, but day after day, year after year, they do.”

Founded in 2006, HealthServe is a non-profit community organisation dedicated to providing healing and hope to the low-wage migrant workers in Singapore. HealthServe opened its first medical clinic in Geylang in July 2007. Since then, thousands of migrant workers have come through our doors. In order to better serve the complex and intertwined needs of the migrant community, we opened additional clinics in Jurong and Mandai, and expanded our programming to include casework, pro bono legal services, counselling, social assistance, an emergency shelter, research, advocacy, and outreach programmes. HealthServe's programmes are run by a small team of dedicated staff and supported by a wide network of volunteers, educational institutions, corporations and community organisations. HealthServe envisions a world where every migrant worker lives a life of dignity, and we hope to have as many people as possible join us in achieving this aim.
