Raised of S$1,200.00
The 61 year old’s struggle
Ray of Hope has previously fundraised for Mdm Yee when she was homeless and (https://rohi.sg/case/details/Abandoned-by-husband-and-homeless-at-61) when she lost her mum (https://rohi.sg/case/details/Help-a-filial-daughter-with-her-mum%E2%80%99s-after-life-costs)
After her mum’s death, the 61-year-old tried her best and picked herself up as fast as she could to get back to life. What she couldn’t deal with wasn’t the grief or the loneliness, but her poor health that prevented her from supporting herself financially. Mdm Yee was determined to work harder after the loss of her mum, she even found a new job as a cleaner that gives her much better pay than the previous job. Even though she is required to commit more hours, Mdm Yee was happy to take on the job just so she could earn more and be self-reliant.
Unfortunately, the 61-year-old was diagnosed with chronic cough and has been coughing so badly that it prevents her from going to work. On top of that, Mdm Yee has been diagnosed with a series of chronic conditions that include hypertension, hypothyroidism and mobility issues. After suffering a fall a year ago, Mdm Yee underwent a knee replacement surgery to improve the conditions of her legs. Unfortunately, that incident has affected her ability to balance and move at a normal pace. She can only walk slowly and is unable to stand for long hours.
As a result, she has been on medical leave on most days and does not have an income.
How you can help?
Ray of Hope is targeting to fundraise $1200.00 ($300 x 4 months) for Mdm Yee as she recuperates. We hope that with this financial interim assistance, she will be able to go back to work and be self-reliant once she gets better!
