He had 3 other siblings who have been supporting him as and when their financial situations allow them to. Having only completed his Primary 6 education, Rajandran spent his life doing ad-hoc cleaning jobs to support himself. Unfortunately, he fell into the world of drugs, which he thought was the solution to his financial problems and loneliness.
When the case workers met him, he confided in us that he too, felt disappointed in himself after falling back into the cycle in 2017, after a good 6-year break from 2009. For now, he just hopes for a chance to amend and rebuild his relationship with his siblings
Help Needed – Give Hope
Rajandran, now 65, said he changed after he found support at the halfway house with the help of his case workers. He has also applied to attend a forklift course to learn a new skill, in hope of upgrading himself to prepare for employment.
“I now have a roof over my head and I will get sent for courses to improve myself. It’s like giving me another chance even when I am 64. I don’t want to go back to do drugs.”
Rajandran acknowledges it is an uphill battle keeping away from a life of drugs, and often recalls the tough times that his family had been put through because of him. But he keeps trying even after he had a few relapses. “Some people talk bad about us, but I am very thankful for my family’s support.”
Ray of Hope would like to support Rajandran by raising $750 ($250 x 3 months) to defray his living expenses while he awaits the approval of his course application. Please donate to give hope to the 64-year-old!
