CAMPAIGN STORY

The Struggle

Anne, 62 years old, used to be a healthy individual doing what she enjoyed in life. Unfortunately, she suffered a stroke in March 2018 while she was on a transit flight in Thailand with severe giddiness and blurred vision. She was hospitalized for 10 days in Thailand and subsequently admitted to the hospital for three months when she returned to Singapore.

Anne has recently been discharged from the hospital on 15th January 2019. With her current condition, she is not suitable for employment and may not be able to be gainfully employed to support herself in the long run, due to the giddiness that she experiences frequently since her stroke. The 62-year-old also suffers from severe arthritis that causes pain due to the swelling of her joints.

Help Needed – Give Hope

Anne shared with us that she has been working as a student care supervisor, involved in community services prior to her stroke. With a pay of more than $3,000 a month, running out of cash at the end of each month was the last thing on her mind. Anne’s previous employment ceased in March 2018, with the onset of the stroke.

Since her unemployment, Anne has been financially dependent on her savings which she accumulated over the years. However, her savings have since depleted. Anne has a monthly rental income of $1,200 which she has been utilizing and topping up with her savings to pay off her monthly housing bank loan of $1,310.

Anne confided in us that her siblings, who are currently in their 60s, are also experiencing financial difficulties and supporting their own families. Although they assist her in matters such as escorting her for medical appointments, they are unable to support her financially. Anne is currently relying on the occasional contributions from her group of church friends for her daily living expenses.

Financial Breakdown

ROHI would like to raise $1,200 ($$400 x 3 months) while she applies for SSO assistance. Your donations will give hope to Anne!
