He searches for foreign workers in forgotten dorms

Every day since the start of April, he has been exploring the nooks and crannies in Tuas, looking for small factory-converted dorms (FCDs) where migrant workers have been cooped up since the Covid-19 outbreak in the foreign worker dormitories broke out.

In the past week alone, Samuel Lim, a volunteer with the Hope Initiative Alliance (HIA), has found and reached out to eight such dorms, which house almost 1,000 workers in total.
