Veera Sundaram Ponnivalavan
45, Chennai, INDIA
General Worker

Veera came to Singapore in 1995 and like most foreign workers, says he is doing it for his family.

“I working here so parents can makan, wife can makan, babies can makan.”

He and his wife has a set of nine-year-old twin daughters and a son who is three-and-half.

He talks to his family daily, mostly when he is back in his ‘home’ for the past few months – a construction site in the Tai Seng area.
