Letter to The New Paper: Foreign workers with hearts of gold
My letter on the above matter is published in The New Paper today, Saturday 17th December 2016
I am deeply touched by the kindness and bravery of the foreign workers who stepped forward to rescue Mr Terrence Tang, who was trapped in his vehicle after a tree fell on it, as described in the report “Foreign workers pull trapped man out of van” (The New Paper, Dec, 15).
Many of us will be scared stiff when an incident like this takes place, but the bravery of the foreign workers who risked their lives to save a man is truly commendable.
I have read several reports of foreign workers who will not hesitate to come to the rescue of any person who is at risk of serious injury or death.
These are the kind of workers Singapore must not only welcome with open arms, but also encourage to serve in the community as grassroots leaders as they have big hearts filled with compassion.
