Bridget Tan, season campaigner for migrant workers suffers stroke; money needed for her expensive treatment
Raymond's letter to The New Paper: CAMPAIGNER NEEDS MEDICAL AID
Workers can contribute funds, too
My letter on the above subject is published in The New Paper today, Monday 23rd March 2015.
Life can be so unpredictable. You may feel like you are in the pink of health one day and be in a wheelchair the next.
Ms Bridget Tan, 66, the veteran campaigner for migrant workers rights is struggling to cope now, as reported in “Time we return the favour” (The New Paper, Mar 18).
With her never-say-die attitude, she has given many foreign workers a ray of hope. She has been helping them for more than a decade, and even now, she is determined to continue working for them. Now that’s true grit!
Given that she has done so much for these migrant workers, I hope that some of them can repay her by doing their bit to pay for her expensive stroke treatment.
Migrant workers do not earn much, but even if they set aside a dollar a month, a few thousand of them can raise the much-needed funds.
