This season of giving, join us to #GiftHope to our migrant friends in Singapore. Donate to HealthServe's health promotion efforts to keep migrant workers safe and healthy.

Many low-wage migrant workers in Singapore work long hours and have little time for rest. Often, they lack access to proper resources to keep themselves safe, healthy and well.

At HealthServe, we believe in a society where every migrant worker gets to live a life of health, wellbeing and dignity.

Since 2006, HealthServe has been providing affordable, holistic health and social care for every migrant worker who comes through our doors - from medical, dental and mental health services to other forms of social assistance they may need.

As we continue to address the complex medical and dental needs of those who fall through the cracks, we are also stepping up health education and training efforts in psychological first aid and chronic disease management. This includes training workers to be trainers and peer support leaders.

As a medical NGO, our work to support tens of thousands of migrant workers every year is underpinned by a large pool of medical and non-medical volunteers.

Support us in empowering our migrant friends to take charge of their health and well-being, while away from home.

HealthServe has been awarded the Enhanced Fund-Raising Programme Grant from Tote Board. All funds raised through this campaign will be matched at 40% by Tote Board for donations up to S$250,000.

About the Charity

Founded in 2006, HealthServe, is an IPC registered charity that seeks to bring healing and hope to vulnerable low-wage migrant workers in Singapore.

There are close to one million work permit holders in Singapore. Access to affordable healthcare can be a problem for low wage migrant workers as foreigners in Singapore do not receive subsidies for healthcare at public institutions. By law, workers are supposed to be covered for both inpatient and outpatient treatment by their employers but not all do. In addition, fear of repatriation and cultural and language barriers also contribute to migrant workers not receiving proper treatment.

The more unfortunate amongst these workers get injured at work and may end up losing their jobs and suffering loss of pay for a protracted period. The wait for their work injury compensation application to be processed and resolved can take months or years.

From a single clinic providing GP services in Geylang to meet the needs of the workers, HealthServe has expanded our range of services to the provision of GP and specialist medical services, rehabilitation and dental services, injury and salary-related casework support, social assistance, counselling and mental health programmes.

We are very much a volunteer-run organisation. Our operations are run by a small staff team and hundreds of medical and non-medical volunteers and interns.
