A resilient single mum struggles to raise her children
Lis, 47 years old, has come a long way out of an abusive relationship to support her two children by herself. The resilient mum suffered emotional abuse by her ex-husband, told us that her children would always be her priority in life, although they might have long outgrown her laps. The boys, 21 and 17, have seen the darkest moments in their mum’s unhappy marriage and have been her strongest pillar of support through the years.
Help Needed – Give Hope
Even with her limited finances after losing her sales job, Lis is determined to raise her children up well single-handedly. Her eldest son is in the second year of his Polytechnic course. The 21-year-old strives to do well and has proven himself, having received various bursary awards throughout his course of study. His younger brother, now 17, is currently in the first year of his Mechanical Engineering course in ITE. The 21-year-old will be enlisting into National Service after completing his course.
Apart from supporting her children, Lis is also supporting her 65 year old mum financially. With the loss of her employment, Lis told us how hard it is to continue paying for all the expenses, including the mortgage of her 5-room flat that she has been trying to sell over the years. Lis told us that she has also lost her room rental income when she was defaulted more than $2,000 in rent by a friend whom she rented the room to out of goodwill. Lis’ ex-husband is also not paying maintenance for the children, on the condition of allowing the family to continue staying in their current flat, which he has paid a large sum through his CPF account.
Quoting Lis, “Without a job, I can’t downgrade my flat. I am racing against time to look for a job so that my children don’t suffer in debts.”
Ray of Hope hopes to raise $2,400 ($400 x 6 months) to help defray her family’s groceries expenses while Lis works towards seeking employment. Please donate to help the single mum tide over this period while she tries to straighten out her financial situation.
*Lis’ social assistance ends in April 2020.

Selamat berpuasa tak lama lagi akak dan keluarga. Saya doakan akak diberi rezki melimpah. In Shaa Allah dapat kerje soon dan anak anak akak berjaya dan menjadi anak yang soleh/solehah. Amin... harap bantuan sikit ini dapat menolong akak sedikit sebanyak.
You’re doing a great job. I was raised by a single mom myself, and the level of strength and resilience she displayed has inculcated the same values in me. You may not get an immediate return now, but when your children are grown you’ll get to see the fruits of your labour now. Stay strong!
