Foreign Workers Spotted Helping To Carry Wheelchair-Bound Elderly Up The Bus At Marine Parade

For ages, foreign workers have been portrayed as something of an anomaly in Singapore.

“Beware of them, they’re dangerous.”

“How long are they gonna stay here?”

“They are probably pretty nasty people.”

But here’s the thing; is the reality of it all truly as dastardly as they speak?

Well, I beg to differ, because foreign workers are actually vital to our country’s economy. I mean, just think about it.

They’re the reason why our country’s infrastructure could rise so quickly.

They’re the reason why roads and bus stops could be built in such short periods of time.

And last but not least, they’ve also shown on multiple occasions that they’re decent human beings.

In fact, they might be even more so than our country’s own people.

Foreign Workers Spotted Helping To Carry Wheelchair-Bound Elderly Up The Bus At Marine Parade

According to Stomp, five foreign workers saved the day when an elderly man in a wheelchair was unable to board a bus in Marine Parade on Monday morning (13 Jan).

This was in accordance with a Stomper’s testimony, which was accompanied by riveting pictures of the heartwarming act.

“I was waiting for a bus at about 5am,” the Stomper said.

“This bus stop in front of Block 87 Marine Parade Road was undergoing some constructions.

“I was curious as to why the workers were there so early and when I spoke to their supervisor, I found out that they were constructing a temporary bus stop due to some road repairs.

And it was then that the foreign workers, to quote my friend, showed great character.

“The elderly man looked to be in his 60s. I saw the workers approach him and ask what bus he was waiting for.

“One of the workers went to the front of the bus stop to look out for his bus and flagged it down when it came.”

“Four of them helped carry the man, together with his wheelchair, to the temporary bus stop.

“The temporary bus stop wasn’t completely done yet, so they had to carry him over.”

Now, if I may so kindly insert my own opinion here…

Kudos… kudos to them.

And The Stomper Was Immeasurably Moved, As Are We

“I really appreciate these workers for working hard and especially overnight while everyone is sleeping,” the Stomper said when asked about how he felt.

He also issued a plea to the citizens of the country.

“I hope people can try to be more understanding when they see these workers sacrificing their sleep. Without them, we wouldn’t have such great and safe facilities to utilise.”

“It could be inconvenient for us sometimes when footpaths or bus stops are being shifted, but just think of these workers sacrificing their sleep, enduring the hot sun, etc. just to ensure the safety of people using facilities.”

And to end off, he encapsulated it all in a classic complimentary gesture.

“Just want to say thank you to the supervisor I spoke to who took time to explain the situation to me. Keep it up! You’re doing great!

“Two thumbs up to these guys for helping members of the public even when they’re working!”

And well, from the looks of it…

The Stomper’s efforts might’ve been well rewarded.

With an ever-increasing recognition of the foreign workers’ efforts in our country, one can be sure of one thing:

Foreign workers might still be considered an anomaly by a certain percentage of Singapore…

But surely it won’t be long before their efforts are recognised by the entire nation.
