Jasmine, 42 years old, has been suffering from schizophrenia since she was 21 years old. Her mother who is 79 years old also suffers from schizophrenia along with diabetes, high cholesterol and hypertension. Jasmine is the main caretaker of her mother and looks after her needs.
Despite suffering from schizophrenia, Jasmine works part time as a cleaner at Tuas. Due to her condition, she is unable to work full time. Her income is not fixed as it is dependent on the number of days she works per month and she earns less than S$700 a month. Jasmine lives in the West and it takes her 1.5 hours each way to reach her workplace all the way at Tuas.
It has not been an easy life for Jasmine. Despite suffering from schizophrenia, having to work and trying her best to manage her condition, she has to care for her mother. Each morning before she leaves for work, she will prepare her mother’s medication and meals and when she returns home from work, she cleans the house and cooks dinner. Her mother used to attend daycare, so it relieves some of Jasmine’s caregiving duties, however, at the end of July this year, her mother had a relapse and is no longer found suitable for daycare.
In order to aide Jasmine in her recovery and give her an outlet to express herself, Ray of Hope used to fundraise for her art therapy fees. She is diligently attending art therapy and she has expressed that she is feeling better after having a safe avenue to express herself.
Give Hope- Help Needed
Due to Jasmine’s condition, she is unable to work full time as there are days where she is mentally unwell.
Ray of Hope would like to raise S$600 (S$100 x 6 months) to defray the resilient’ s family groceries expenses for 6 months. Despite her chronic mental illness, Jasmine tries her best to work and takes good care of her mother. Please give hope to Jasmine and help her out!
