*Double your giving this December! Every dollar donated to our campaigns will be matched dollar-for-dollar this December!*
Mr Abug* 30 years old, is from rural Bangladesh and he is the family’s sole breadwinner. His mother, 46 years old, is unable to walk well due to chronic pain from kidney stones. His father is 57 years old and works as a farmer. The family lives in poverty and Mr Abug took a loan of nearly S$7,000 in order to work as a construction worker in Singapore. Part of the loan was from the bank and the other half of the loan was from his relatives and friends. He came to Singapore in June 2019 and earned a basic salary of just S$600 per month. With overtime, he can earn up to S$800 a month.
On the 14th of August 2019, Mr Abug met with a workplace related accident. He was pushing a trolley with a 100kg stone up a plank when the plank gave way and Mr Abug fell 1 metre to the ground. He was sent to a local government hospital with neck, shoulder, back and hand injures. Due to his injuries he was given 2 months of Medical Leave. Till today Mr Abug is unable to lift his left hand well.
Mr Abug informed us that he was only given MC Wages of S$700, which was not his full MC wages. Mr Abug also informed us that his parents are currently being harassed by his relatives and friends for repayment of the loan he took from them.

Ray of Hope would like to raise S$600.00 (S$300.00 x 2 months) to defray Mr Abug and his parents living expenses for two months while he awaits compensation from MOM. He has returned home in the middle of December and therefore, no donation is too small! Please give hope to Mr Abug and ease his parent’s suffering as they are currently in hardship!
