EAST alumnus Daniel Yeo graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry in 2016. When he was an EAST student, he was introduced to HealthServe for his practicum which he later joined as a staff. Recently, he was featured in The Straits Times for his good work among the migrant workers in Singapore through his ministry there. Here is an excerpt:

Mr Yeo, who has been a case worker with HealthServe for five years, said his most memorable case surfaced recently. It involved Mr Rahaman, 38, a Bangladeshi who suffered a stroke as he was battling Covid-19. He overcame the infection but was paralysed on the left side of his body and lost his speech ability because of the stroke. Mr Yeo wanted to do more to comfort the patient during his weekly visits, so he would pack Bangladeshi food for Mr Rahaman to have a taste of home. He also facilitates video calls between the Bangladeshi and his family. Mr Yeo said: “Even though he couldn’t speak, I could see that he was so happy to be able to hear the voices and see the faces of his wife and daughters.”
