Welcome to the Family

“No man is an island. The loving community in itself is the greatest place of security and protection.”

Thongthot Yordsa-ard came to Singapore in hopes of establishing a better life for himself. While he was promised to have arrangements made for a passport and the permits required to come to Singapore, these turned out to be a lie. He soon found himself being smuggled into our country, living near a forested area, and working odd jobs just to get by.

If that wasn’t bad enough, he was caught in a fight that resulted in the death of a gang member. He was thus charged and convicted of murder.

Listen to Mark Goh as he shares with us about his experience of representing Thongthot Yordsa-ard in his case and how we, as a community, are called to embrace the migrant workers in our midst as 𝙛𝙖𝙢𝙞𝙡𝙮 – not a mere economic digit. How can we be that loving community for our migrant brothers and sisters here in Singapore?
