Doing Good: Aiding the Migrant Worker Community

After suffering a tragic incident which severed four fingers on her dominant hand while illegally deployed to work at her employer’s father’s food stall, Su Su Mar was referred by the Centre for Domestic Employees to Law Society Pro Bono Services’ (LSPBS) Ad Hoc Pro Bono Scheme (AHPBS), which helps those who do not qualify for other legal aid schemes but are in exceptional need. Su Su Mar received a settlement from her employer and the insurers, after being aided by LSPBS’ volunteer lawyer, Sara Ng of Vicki Heng Law Corporation. The employer’s father was recently sentenced to jail and a fine for failing to ensure Su Su Mar’s safety.

Watch how lawyers can come together with other social workers to make a difference for people like Su Su Mar.

Give to LSPBS’ Inclusive Justice campaign so the migrant worker community can continue to receive legal protection. Any amount donated at will receive dollar-for-dollar matching under the Tote Board’s Enhanced Fundraising Programme, subject to caps.
