With his family of 9 relying on his sole income, it is no wonder that Mr Chua often finds himself worrying over the household bills. The struggle comes about when the family of 9 relies on the sole income of the 35-year-old. When the case workers visited Mr Chua at home, Mr Chua who works as a manufacturing technician told us that he is usually home when his children are fast asleep. After clocking maximum overtime and even with a salary of $2,400 a month, the family struggles to get by each month end. With 6 school-going children, Mr Chua told us that there is so much more to prepare for financially, especially when their 3-room BTO flat is likely to be ready at the end of the year. Every day when Mr Chua is at work, his wife manages the household single-handedly – from sending the children to school to preparing them for bed at the end of the day. The family is currently residing in a 4-room flat owned by Mr Chua’s elderly mum and they hope to own a place to call home one day.
After all, Mr Chua and his wife, like all parents, hope to provide their children with a more conducive environment to stay in, especially when his children are growing up fast day by day. Mr Chua’s wife, who will be applying for a Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP), hopes to be able to seek employment as she is currently unable to do so now that she is on Social Visit Pass.
Ray of Hope would like to help defray Mr Chua’s expenses for his children’s milk and diapers by raising $2,000 ($400 x 5 months) for the family. Your donations can go a long way to lightening the financial load and emotional stress of the sole breadwinner of his family!
