Campaign Story

Double the impact of your giving this December! All donations on Ray of Hope will be matched dollar for dollar. 100% of your giving goes directly to our beneficiaries.

Ray of Hope has previously raised $1250.00 ($250 x 6 months) to help ah ma with her living expenses (https://rohi.sg/case/details/Help-a-80-year-old-ah-ma-with-living-expenses). Prior to her last disbursement, ah ma has expressed concerns about no longer receiving support from Ray of Hope. Ah ma told us how important this amount means to her as it is her only source of income. While other seniors are entitled to Silver support schemes and receive payouts occasionally, she informed us that she did not receive payouts of any kind due to her citizenship. The only monetary support that she was receiving was the $250/month from Ray of Hope. That $250 is also the only source of income for the 80 year old.

Mdm Wong recently found out that she had a tumour near her throat. While the doctor has advised her to go for operation to get rid of the tumour, Mdm Wong is reluctant to do so despite being warned that her tumour is life threatening and that her days are numbered.

With your help, you can help make her days count. Besides being diagnosed with a tumour, the 80-year-old also has mobility issues and the weakening of her joints is making it difficult for her to move around independently. This also affects her quality of life.

With the festive season and Chinese New Year round the corner, the 80-year-old hopes to be able to have a decent meal and not worry about her day to day living expenses.

Ray of Hope would like to raise $1500.00 ($250 x 6 months) for the stateless ah ma. Your donation matters. Please give hope so she can enjoy her remaining days left!
