CAMPAIGN STORY

Remember the main caregiver who was diagnosed with mental and medical conditions, but still has to take care of her elderly mum with schizophrenia and brother with depression and low IQ?

Ray of Hope helped Ms Lee and her family a while ago when the family was struggling to make ends meet. https://rohi.sg/case/details/Main-caregiver-despite-mental-and-medical-conditions

The family used to be reliant on $500 of SSO support every month and could barely make ends meet even with the salary of her brother who works as a cleaner. Ms Lee reached out to Ray of Hope again and informed us that her brother recently fell and is on 6 months of medical leave. The family is facing a stressful time as their main breadwinner could no longer work and there is no other income. Ms Lee’s brother also suffers from depression and his mental health has been deteriorating as a result of what has happened.

Ms Lee told us that she can’t imagine celebrating new year this year as they are struggling to make ends meet and celebration of new year is the last thing on her mind. She told us that even her daily meals now are a struggle and she worries about putting food onthe table for her mum and her brother.

Ray of Hope is also worried that the ongoing stress will trigger the relapse of Ms Lee’s schizophrenia and depression. Please give hope to the family and support their living arrears during this period of difficult time.

Ray of Hope would like to raise $1800.00 ($300 for 6 months) to help with the family’s living arrears. Your donations will go a long way in helping the family provide for their basic needs!
