Campaign Story

Mr SH moved to Singapore for the 4th time on July 7th 2019 after paying $4,200 in agent fee (now $5500 with interest). Mr. SH is from Bangladesh and is currently taking care of his whole family including his 12 year old daughter and a 16 month old son, his wife, father, mother, 14 year old sister, and grandfather. His daughter had to stop school and his baby son has not been able to have milk in a long time. He is the sole breadwinner of his family.

In November 2019 after his employer hadn’t paid him his last 4 months of salary, he asked for a transfer. His boss said okay to transfer and that he would settle his salary, but never provided a letter of transfer nor his salary.

In December he went to MOM to report that he had not been paid in over 4 months. There were 25 people in his company and as of that date, none of them had been paid. The other 24 men had all gone home with their insurance money of $1,500. Mr. SH has said he would rather go to jail then go back home (due to all his agent fees and that he has not provided for his family in a year).

He started his case with TADM on December 12th 2019. He asked for his salary owed, $5500 but his employer refused and said he would only pay $3000. Mr SH accepted this and they both signed and agreed that the employer would pay him $750 every month for 4 months. Mr. SH never saw any of this money. Later he had another meeting with TADM mid-January to discuss another deal. His employer wanted to only pay him $600, Mr. SH did not sign the salary agreement drafted by TADM and today has still not received a cent of his salary.

On January 2nd, his company closed and all their work permits were cancelled on the 3rd of January. MOM said that they couldn’t help him because the company closed down already. On the 24th of February his boss sent him a voice note telling him to move out. He has been staying on his own for the last 5 months

Over the last few months Mr. SH has been borrowing money from friends (around $900) and receiving help from 2 other non-profit groups.

Ray of Hope would like to help Mr. SH by raising $2,750 for him and his family for 5 months. $550 a month will be used to cover his rent in Singapore ($250 a month) and also his daughter’s school fees in Bangladesh ($300 a month) for the next 5 months while he tries to resolve his salary dispute or find new employment. We hope that Mr. SH will be able to find a job soon despite the Covid-19 situation.
