Request for funding

Update posted by Suliana Auzar On Sep 26, 2018


We are asking funds to actually enable us to own our goods van. It’s not really to purchase one but to rent on a long-term basis. We have surveyed few places where min. rental is $1k+/mth. Some place ask for 1+1 payment.

We are thinking that with a van, my spouse can do delivery jobs by himself. On top of that, he can register under ‘lalamove’ or any other company that need ppl to do delivery on a freelance basis. We will have to buy necessary items like for delivery purposes, eg. trolley, cashcard etc.

My husband lost his source of income earlier this year. The taxi he had been driving was towed away by the taxi company. We are with 3 young kids - 2yrs old, 3yrs old and 12yrs old. I’m currently unemployed as my hands are full with 3 kids.

- My eldest child is with special needs and is currently schooling at Rainbow Centre.

- The reason taxi was towed away earlier this year was because my 2yo son was warded in KKH ICU due to 'rotavirus' which led to 'brain injury'. He was in ICU for 1+ mth before being moved down to high-dependecy unit 4weeks later. He was heavily sedated with morphines while in ICU. Tube was inserted to enable him to breathe .Was on feeding tube as still not strong enough for solid food. His kidneys nearly failed. He was 'temporarily paralysed' on his right side of the body.

When discharged he was given the all clear by the neuros and docs at KKH. He was on 2 types of meds but currently on 1 type of meds (for stiff muscle). The meds he was off already was for his epilepsy (in case there's an episode). The hospital bills amounted to $50+k, not including the follow ups with KKH to see the therapists.

- My husband went to several interviews but have yet to receive a phone call with replies. He had to put on hold some interviews at times, due to insufficient cash for transport.

- At some days, milk formula and diapers for the kids (2yrs old and 3yrs old) are just not enough to last or at days they had to go without milk which I had to substitute with plain water or milo.

During this difficult times, we really hope to have some funds to actually tide us over in the meantime.

I know others will think, “Why need to get own van?” “Why can't he just work with any delivery companies.” There are some advantages of having own vehicle (NO ITS NOT FOR US TO ENJOY OURSELVES OR GO GALIVANTING. NO). As mentioned my 2yo son is still on follow ups with KKH for his therapy sessions. That would help us to ease our journey for my husband to send us to KKH and back. On top of that, every therapy session would need us at least to pay min. nearly hundred or hundred plus. Yes I know ppl would say 'can pay instalments' or send billing invoice to our home address. You see we're alrdy down with our son's hospital $50k plus while he was in KKH.

I really seek and plead for the kind hearted ppl to help us fund and donate .We will make full good use of the donations given .With prayers from you guys hoping that me and my family will no longer have to go through difficult days anymore. May God bless all of you out there.
