“Now I can pay for my own meal.”
About Campaignends 30 Nov 2016, 12 AM
Mr. Chew was a former client of Simei Care Centre. For 2 years, he attended the day care program. He cried daily because he felt dejected and helpless. Having no income, he perceived those days as the worst time of his life. Later, Mr. Chew’s counsellor and employment specialist found him a cleaning job. His condition improved and he was subsequently referred to Community Rehabilitation & Support Service (CRSS), for continued rehabilitation and employment skills training. CRSS is a community-based program that provides visitation and day activities for clients living at home.
Now Mr. Chew works at a fast food restaurant. He is proud of his achievements. “Today I’m proud of my achievements. I can pay for my dental services and buy the mobile phone that I like. I can even afford a nice meal of fish & chips when I like. I would like to share this with all members, ‘Do not be afraid of returning to work. People may scold you, but if you are willing to overcome hardship, you’ll succeed.’”
