Numb. That is how WY felt physically and emotionally when a metal block fell from 26 floors above and landed on his back while he was working. He had come to Singapore 18 years prior to provide for his ill mother, and now he would be unable to help her and the rest of his large family. His daughter had just started University back in China, and he was hopeful that her life would be easier than his had been.
Yet, despite the physical pain and emotional stress of his injury, he held onto his faith and sought help from his pastor, who told him about HealthServe. Here, he received counselling to help his stress, meals while he recovered, and translators that accompanied him to clinic appointments. Most importantly, he met migrant brothers and interns who showed him compassion and helped him on his journey. He spent nine months recovering with HealthServe, and now has less pain now. After spending so many homesick years in Singapore away from his family, he will be returning this month. WY is always thinking about others, and he hopes to come back soon to help other migrant brothers at HealthServe.
