Like most young adults, 21-year-old Hucheng harbours dreams of a life to call his own. Born in the Henan Province of China, Hucheng’s mum sent him to Singapore to receive the best education possible, so that he could escape a life of poverty. He is now a Year 2 student enrolled in a culinary course in an Institute of Technical Education (ITE).
Hucheng understands that merely having big dreams is insufficient, especially when his non-Singaporean citizenship poses many issues for him. He does not qualify for any government assistance for school fees. Nonetheless, Hucheng longs for a chance to complete his education so that he can earn a better living after completing his studies.
Over the years, Hucheng’s relatives have turned to both charitable and religious organisations for donations for his school fees, however, the donations will run out before Hucheng completes his course.
Help Needed – Give Hope
Hucheng’s parents are divorced. His mum has since remarried, and his biological father, who is in his 50s, suffers from some form of mental illness and is unable to work. Although Hucheng still keeps in contact with his mother, she is unable to support him financially due to her own financial constraints. It was difficult for Hucheng to come to terms with his parents’ divorce, yet the 21-year-old has never once blamed his parents for what he has been put through.
Hucheng recalled how he was constantly longing for his parents to be by his side when he encountered difficulties or when he needed someone to speak to. Concluding with a smile, however, the resilient boy told us that he aspires to be a famous chef one day to make his parents proud. We were touched by his determination. Hucheng has an elder brother (27 years old) who is working in China.
As a non-Singaporean, Hucheng does not qualify for any subsidies for his school fees. He has 3 terms remaining before graduation.
ROHI would like to support 21-year-old Hucheng in completing his course by raising $20,205 for his school fees (S$6,735 per term). The fees of $6,735 (inclusive of GST) for the current term is due on 1st July 2019. Payment will be made directly to the school.
