A set of new clothes, festive snacks on our coffee tables, decorations around the house.
These are some things we take for granted when we’re preparing for the holidays. But not every family can afford to celebrate the festivities with dignity. Help light up this Deepavali for those who are struggling among the community. We want to enable our beneficiaries to enjoy the holidays just like the rest of us. Each with different needs – double amputee living alone, single mothers with school going children, rehabilitated ex-offenders trying to rebuild their lives, elderly sick and injured foreign worker.
Our Lights for Hope campaign will give hope to 20 families consisting of 63 adults and 16 children.
Please give what you can to lighten their load. Every contribution gives our beneficiaries hope to press on.
Meet Mdm Ambika
55-year-old Mdm Ambika is a double amputee and lives alone in a rental flat. She enjoys a close relationship with her daughter who is married and living separately from her. Mdm Ambika is unable to work due to her chronic health issues. Her daughter is currently working as a nurse, while caring for her two young children. Mdm Ambika’s son-in-law works as a stall helper, earning a daily wage.
Despite being a double amputee, Mdm Ambika is able to look after herself and her house is neat and tidy. Mdm Ambika informs us that she is just like any ordinary individual. She does not allow her situation to limit her freedom and independence. She takes great pride in being able to cook, mop the floor and keep her house clean. Her neighbours look up to her as a source of inspiration and strength!
Mdm Ambika and her family wishes to spend Deepavali together despite their circumstances.
Be the light that gives hope to Mdm Ambika and others like her.
These are some of the families you will be supporting this Deepavali.
