Raised of S$600.00
12Days to go
Mdm Sunarmi is 69 years old. She was the main caretaker to her 74-year-old husband, Mr Abdul Rahim, who has been bedridden since 2006 after he suffered a fatal fall following a stroke. He is also completely blind of both eyes, partially deaf and unable to speak.
For 13 years Mdm Sunarmi devotedly cared for Mr Abdul Rahim who was completely reliant on her as he was bedridden. Before her husband’s stroke in 2006 she used to work as a dishwasher and food stall helper but stopped to become a fulltime caregiver. Mdm Sunarmi herself suffers from heart disease and requires regular medical check-up.
In July this year, Mr Abdul Rahim was transferred to a nursing home as it became too difficult for Mdm Sunarmi to care for him as she is already 69 years old and is no longer physically strong. The couple have no children and have been surviving on his savings which is now almost depleted. Mdm Sunarmi now lives alone in a rental unit and live an extremely frugal life. She worries greatly about the future and being able to live out the rest of her life in dignity.
Give Hope – Help Needed
Ray of Hope would like to raise S$600 (S$200 x 3 months) to defray Mdm Sunarmi’s living expenses for three months while she awaits the extension of her government financial assistance. Her government financial assistance is due to end in August 2019 and the extension will take anywhere between 4 weeks to 6 weeks.
* This is the couple’s second second fundraiser. Ray of Hope used to assist them for 6 months with their living expenses
* Client is receiving government financial which is due to end this month
