In 2016, HealthServe’s staff team grew by 3 individuals. Meet them below.
Joined 1 March 2016
Daniel was doing a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry when he applied to do a practicum with Healthserve, having heard much from friends about the work there. Since his time there for about half a year, he had learned much about the plight of the migrant workers and the system that they have come under. Feeling that he can make a positive impact on improving the situation of these workers, he decided to join Healthserve, when an opportunity arose just as he completed his studies.
Daniel is passionate about photography, especially people photography, having been honing his skills for the last 15 years. In his free time, he also enjoys watching a good movie, swimming or reading.

Joined 4 January 2016
Nhaca joined HealthServe as a volunteer in early September 2015 to help with HealthServe’s communications efforts. She enjoyed her time volunteering so much that when the opportunity arose for her to join HealthServe as a full time staff at the start of 2016, she readily accepted. Nhaca’s studies at Georgetown University focused on economic development and poverty. She is passionate about social justice and her nonprofit career has taken her from the US throughout Asia and now to Singapore. Nhaca is thrilled to be a part of the HealthServe community.
Nhaca was born in a small village along the central coast of Vietnam and raised in an immigrant community just outside of Seattle. She moved to Singapore 3 years ago and lives with her husband and cat, Nugget. She’s loves animals and is passionate about vegetarian cooking and visual arts.
Joined 1 March 2016
Reuben was acquainted with Healthserve through an event called “Just a Handful of Coins” (JAHOC) about three years ago and it left an indelible impression on him. Three years later, at the start of 2016, he decided to join Healthserve as a volunteer to understand its work and vision. During the course of his short volunteer stint, he gained a deeper insight into Healthserve’s multi-faceted and holistic approach in helping migrant workers, and was eventually given the opportunity to join Healthserve as a full-time staff of which he readily accepted.
Reuben studied Biomedical Engineering in Ngee Ann Polytechnic and is currently pursuing his Bachelor of Social Work. He hopes to emanate comfort and joy to the oppressed migrant workers, and seeks to understand the cultural manifestations of behavior among them so as to serve them better.
In his free time, Reuben cycles and explores the sunny island’s park connector network and enjoys playing a good game of ultimate frisbee with his ex-colleagues. He is born and bred in Singapore yet takes a keen interest in his ‘middle kingdom’ roots.
