Joshua Ng was 3 when he was diagnosed with cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome, a rare genetic disorder.
For 20 years, he's lived with a congenital heart defect and frequent hand and leg contractions. Every day, he relies on his mama for his daily activities, and uses a motorised wheelchair to get around. His papa is the family's sole breadwinner. Alas, he too has a host of medical issues. His salary from part-time driving is insufficient to cover the family's living expenses.
It was only after the Red Cross reached out to support the family that they ate regular, nutritious meals. With the supermarket vouchers they receive each month, they bought foods that didn't just fill their bellies, but were beneficial to health. With their financial burden lifted, the family has more reasons to smile.
'The Red Cross vouchers help a lot. Now, we can buy salmon, cheese, vegetables, fruits and brown rice. These foods are fresh and healthy. Thank you for helping us.' - The Ng Family
