Kazy, aged 25, is the youngest among his three siblings. He came to Singapore in October 2019 in hopes of providing a better life for his family in Bangladesh. To work in Singapore, Kazy took up a bank loan of $9,800 to pay for his agent fees. He worked as a shipyard worker but suffered a workplace related accident just two months after he started working.
On the 20th of January 2020, Kazy was tasked to connect the power cable of a heavy grinding machine. The machine was placed on a metal rack above him. Within a few seconds, the machine turned on and dropped from the shelf. The rotating disc of the machine cut his left abdomen and left a wound. He was bought to a clinic two hours after the incident and was given six stiches there. The doctor also issued him with one day of MC.
However, Kazy could barely stand or sleep for the next few days due to the agonizing pain from the injury. He subsequently went to the hospital on the 24th of January 2020 to seek further treatment. He was given 40 days of MC and medications to speed up his recovery. It has been more than a year since his injury, but his employer has yet to give him his MC wages.
Since the accident, Kazy has not been able to send any remittance home for his family. He was previously earning about $650 per month and would remit the bulk of his salary to his family. Being the sole provider of the family, Kazy has to support his parents, two siblings and his 6-months-old nephew. Kazy’s father suffers from brain tumor. To continue supporting the family, his father works as a farmer from time to time when he is well.
With loans to repay and family members relying him for sustenance, Kazy is worried about his family’s livelihood. His family has been calling him countlessly as the debt collectors has been demanding them for the money owned.
Ray of Hope would like to support Kazy by raising $2,660 ($665 x 4 months) to help the injured worker and his family with their living expenses.
