We often overlook those who are busy building our houses and keeping our streets clean. Many of these migrant workers have left their families behind to make a living in Singapore. They crave friendship and support as they often feel isolated, just like Jai*.

Jai is a migrant worker who came to Singapore to support his family in 2001. He tried to adjust to this new life, but loneliness crept up on him and he started drowning his sorrows with alcohol. To fuel his addiction, Jai borrowed large sums of money and chalked up a huge debt.

In January 2019, Jai attended a concert which was organised by The Salvation Army Sojourn. We shared a message at the concert that inspired Jai to rethink about his priorities in life and he decided to seek our help. With the care and support from Sojourn, Jai slowly broke free from his unhealthy drinking habit and eventually paid off his debt. Jai is now leading a happier and healthier life. He also volunteers with Sojourn and shares his experience with others with the hope that they too, can lead a fulfilling life in Singapore.

We hope that Jai's story inspires you to support us in our efforts to help transform the lives of migrant workers and other underprivileged groups. With the ongoing crisis, we continue to see the heartbreaking effects of the pandemic on our beneficiaries. We need your continued support to help those who are severely affected. Thank you for your generosity.
