A drive set up to help a group of single parents with kids raise funds for the festive season.
Here are some examples of the people whom we are helping.
Mdm H is a 50 single mum of 2. She is not divorce but her husband has ran away from singapore and remarried in malaysia. Mdm H has gone thru womb removal,hip replacement surgery in thr past 4 yrs. She has difficulty walking and cant stand for too long. She use to work 2 yrs back but after the tummy clip which was done to enable her to go for the hip replacement,she cant hold her bladder. So she is on diapers. Mdm H has a child who has autism and another who has dyslexia. Her family survives mostly on social services and occasional handouts from family.
Mr A is a single father of 2 who has cancer. He works adhoc as a security guard. His kids are in primary school. To make ends meet sometimes Mr A pedals tissues in the market. His medical is 80% subsidise and his kids are on financial help in school. Apart from that mr A received no other payout from any other bodies.
Mdm Y. Single mum of 2. Youngest child is 2 yrs old. Eldest 5yrs old. She sends her kids to cc and works as an office admin earnibg $1700 a month. She also has 2 elderly parents she is supporting.
For families that i have stated above i thank you very much to allow me to share your stories.
ApArt from these i also have another 12 families that are not state. The kids in these families do not visit for deepavali. They do not get new clothes unless donated. Or given to them by kind sponsors.
I have this year launched a project teaching those mummies who at home have free time to start baking and learning how to start an online business but its not helping too much. Hope that some help can be given to help these ppl in need.
