On 5 November 2019, a foreign domestic worker (FDW) pushed a two-year-old toddler out of harm's way when a car came speeding towards them while they were at Lentor Avenue. Thanks to her quick actions, the toddler escaped serious injuries. Unfortunately, the FDW lost her life.

The late Ms Jaspreet Kaur, who was a single mother left behind a seven-year-old daughter, two younger brothers and an ageing mother.

We appeal to your generosity to support the bereaved family through this difficult period. Your donation, no matter the amount, will go a long way for them.
