Singapore After Work - S1E5: Community Calls
Food technologist Samantha Liew volunteers for Back Alley Barbers to serve migrant workers while award-winning photographer Edwin Koo runs a community project taking portraits of the elderly.

Among the myriad of anecdotes: a software developer hunts down tiny creepy crawlies after dark. A graphic designer takes makes time beyond work to clean and groom terminally ill patients. A marketing consultant tries to keep the food heritage of indigenous people alive, and an oncology nurse makes dreams come true for children with critical illnesses.
