Hi - To all Samaritan out there.
Mandy Chim (per photo) is a single mother of two in Hong Kong, and have been unemployed since Feb 2020 due to the Covid-19 fallout, seriously impacting her hard earned job in restaurant.
She had, unfortunately, with the financial hardships, depleted her small savings in the process of keeping her daughters in education, and in assisting her age old mom who is hospitalised in Fujian Province, China.
Some 3 months back, she was tricked by unscrupulous money lender into a loan arrangement and is now in a very dire state of mental and physical burnout & unwarranted stress due to the compounded interest that is piling up, as well as constant harassment from the lenders.
As a voluntary social worker, I have tried to help this family with my limited capacity. I am not the type of person to approach others for assistance to a 3rd party if it can be avoided, if this can be resolved with other available avenues be it organisations, or from individuals
As a Buddhist, may I on behalf of Mandy and her family, and aged mom express their Sadhu Sadhu Sadhu to those who help. May your kind thoughts and act be a good karma.
I will ensure the funds collected are disbursed of properly.
