COVID-19 has threatened the livelihood of many individuals and compounded the suffering of a great number of families, especially those that have had loved ones lose their jobs.

Liwei is 29 years old, and he is on the autism spectrum. Liwei, who attends Eden Centre for Adults, does not have any siblings and is raised by his elderly father after his mother's passing following a history of multiple medical conditions.

As the sole breadwinner, Liwei's father, who used to work as a taxi driver, lost a significant portion of his income as a result of a drop in fares due to the pandemic.

He eventually gave up his job as a taxi driver and switched to working as an attendant at a coffee shop. However, with the ban of dining-in at eateries during the Circuit Breaker period, Liwei's father had to stop work and currently has no means of earning a livelihood to meet the needs of his family.

The Eden Care Fund can help Liwei and his father offset a part of their household expenses.

You can help families like Liwei with your contribution to the Eden Care Fund.

The Eden Care Fund helps needy clients to have access to transport services, learning materials, or to pay a portion of the monthly programme fees.

The Eden Care Fund is also a quick financial aid to meet emergency household needs in terms of food, accommodation, electricity and water, medical expenses, transport, etc, when the families have no prompt access to other financial assistance schemes.
