Arjun* left his family behind in India and came to Singapore to work as he desperately needed to repay his family's debts. When Covid-19 struck, a nationwide lockdown was imposed and Arjun's work on a construction site was put on hold. For many months, Arjun only received a basic salary. It was an extremely stressful period for him as he was worried about repaying his mounting debts and caring for his family. Feeling trapped in his dormitory, Arjun started to lose hope.

Before the lockdown, our team at The Salvation Army Sojourn befriended Arjun when he attended one of our social activities. When our staff called to check-in on him during the lockdown, he was relieved to hear from us. To help ease his despondency, we provided regular counselling over the phone and through virtual meetings. We also sent him care packs containing snacks, fruits, bread and energy drinks to lift up his spirits.

We have walked alongside many migrant workers and have helped to turn their lives around. This pandemic is not going away any time soon and it takes an emotional and mental toll on many of them who are far away from home and have debts to pay.

Your donation, however big or small, will go a long way in helping to provide much-needed care for the migrant workers and many other needy beneficiaries under our wide range of social services. Give them hope by making a donation today.
