It broadened my worldview and reignited my passion for community service
Agnes Tan, an NTU student, shared her internship experience with HIA to provide holistic care to the migrant domestic workers in Singapore through ADEO, a movement of HIA. She shared that it was a humbling experience to see other migrant domestic workers stepping forward during the events to volunteer and spend their precious Sunday afternoon caring for the other migrant domestic sisters in their midst.

During the event, we had the opportunity to interact with the MDWs and gain insight into their experiences as women living and working in Singapore. This experience was truly eye-opening and allowed me to appreciate their strength and generosity in caring for their households while missing their loved ones back home. It was a humbling reminder to be more giving and loving towards those around me.
Overall, I believe that my fellowship and I had an amazing time at the event, and we are grateful to SowCare and their partners for their tireless efforts in showing appreciation and love towards the MDWs in our community. The regular gatherings held by SowCare and ADEO serve as a powerful reminder of the important role that MDWs play in our society and the importance of showing them gratitude and support.
