Like many before him, Rahman came to Singapore to support his family back in Bangladesh by working in the construction industry. Being the sole breadwinner, his diabetic mother and three younger siblings depended on him for financial provision.
On 19th February 2020, an unfortunate accident damaged his cornea and hampered his ability to send money back home. Burdened by the loan he took to come to Singapore and his responsibilities towards his family, Rahman is faced with a situation where only the empathy of the public could offer him reprieve.
Rahman’s plight is only one of the many stories of hardships faced by our migrant workers.
As one of the people who helped build the infrastructure that we enjoy, it now befalls upon us to honour the contributions of our migrant workers by extending our hands when they need us the most.
