Grace To Dream Again
Agnes, 18, suffered horrific physical, sexual and psychological abuse by her stepfather since she was a child. Without love and family support, she subsequently got into trouble with the law and was sent to MWS Girls' Residence to receive specialised intervention. She attended weekly counselling sessions, and weekly art and expressive therapy sessions. As part of her vocational training, MWS placed the N-levels holder on a coffee barista training course, which included a work placement stint. She now dreams of starting afresh by opening a cafe with her mum, and decorating it with her paintings.
Grace To Work Again
A massive stroke left Mr Lai, a tower crane operator, with impaired speech and paralysis. When he was admitted to MWS BNH, he felt anguished and helpless that he could only express himself through limited non-verbal gestures, and had to learn simple daily activities from scratch.
With intensive nursing care and rehabilitation, he gradually became stronger and learnt to walk again. The 52-year-old has made such a marked recovery that he is able to work again as a packer at a charity for the physically disabled. Today, he uses a motorised wheelchair and public transport to commute between the nursing home and his workplace independently.
