Each year, our staff work closely with hundreds of volunteers to keep our organisation running.
From doctors to lawyers, homemakers to students – HealthServe volunteers come from all walks of life, with the common aim of impacting the lives of the thousands of migrant workers we serve.
In turn, our volunteers’ lives are impacted.
Join us in supporting the needs of our migrant community.
For it is in giving that we receive.
Run wholly by volunteers, HealthServe’s clinic offers subsidised health services to migrant workers. These services include dental care, specialist orthopaedic care, dermatology, rehabilitation consultations in occupational therapy, physiotherapy, and chronic disease management.
* No medical background required
HealthServe provides a full range of mental health services from large group psychoeducation workshops to individual counselling sessions with native-speaking qualified counsellors, with the aim of addressing, strengthening and empowering the mental wellbeing of migrant workers.
A sub-unit of HealthServe's Casework & Social Services (CWSS) department, the O&E team organises regular community events and free health check-ups for our migrant workers with the aim of better supporting their physical and mental wellbeing.

Hear From Our Community
When we decide to volunteer, we often think of ourselves as serving and giving. In my journey, I realise that I have received more than I have given. And amidst the challenges of 2020, I have learnt much from the migrant brothers we serve and the volunteers alongside me. The migrant brothers have shown resilience, faith and trust in our system and us.
I like coming back to HealthServe because everyone is working towards the same goals, be it in casework or the clinic.
I feel that most patients are very appreciative. Once, on my way to HealthServe at Geylang, I got lost, but a man recognised me and led me, “Auntie, you want to go clinic is it?” They are very friendly and give thanks from their heart. It’s very heartwarming that they remember and recognise me.
Through this volunteering, I got to know more about their culture, debts incurred from high recruitment fees, and I feel glad that I can play a part in relieving part of their burden.
People in HealthServe do really care - they really pursue from start to finish a brother’s case.
We see many cases of their mom/dad/family being severely ill or passing on, and they can’t attend funerals, see the birth of a child. For them [migrant workers] to say I’m going to survive another day is courageous.
Volunteering gave me so much more purpose, drive and focus. It gave me more awareness of diversity and of different people’s challenges
