Learning the trade of business in managing people-to-people from his sister, Mr Lim is known for his eminence in helping his clients find their ideal migrant domestic worker. In return Jack Focus focuses on the well-being of migrant domestic workers and trains them to their prospective clients’ needs.
A recent news story featuring a heroic migrant domestic worker who did not survive the ordeal in being hit by an on-coming bus as she risked her life for a child under her care was formerly recruited by Mr. Lim from his agency. “Upon hearing the news, I was devastated. She flew all the way here to earn a living and her family would be in anguish having to see her body returned,” Mr Lim recalled. In order to ease the pain and by acting as a beneficiary, he had managed to receive donations from the public and SMRT, consolidating to an amount of thirty thousand dollars.
An employer who cares not just about business but his staffs as well, Mr Lim has set up Wellcare Home Pte Ltd – a hostel for his future migrant domestic workers to live in. Located at Bukit Timah Shopping Centre since the start of the establishment in 2005, the agency offers services such as – recruiting migrant domestic workers, home leave processing for embassy endorsement and renewal of work permit.

Eventually, this earned him an appointment in being the Vice President of the Centre. Looked upon as an employer and a friend at the same time, he runs his business wholeheartedly.
