A film by Our Better World.

Singapore has a large number of migrant workers with statistics showing over a million people in their 2017 foreign workforce. These people are often disparaged by local citizens, who may see them as different, lesser, invisible. Sok Hwee, after reading a story about a foreign worker left to die in the streets, was inspired to change how she treated these workers. Sok Hwee now works with Agape Community Services, assisting with their weekly English classes offered on Saturday evenings at a nearby migrant worker dorm. She expresses that anyone can help out: as a facilitator, setting up the classroom, serving food, or being a “befriender.” “All you need is just a willing heart and willing hands.” This ministry has led her to make deep friendships with the people she supports. She has traveled to India to attend their weddings and meet their families, and their presence has enriched her life.
