Through the programme, for every $1 that Madam Tan saved, MWS would match it with $2 which was covered by donations. She was also encouraged to save and guided on how to do so. These are small steps that Madam Tan is taking to improve life for her family.
These days, Madam Tan works as a part-time cleaner. She is also trying to spend more time with her children and even serve as a community volunteer. It is in facing difficulties in life that Madam Tan is moved to help others from befriending neighbours in need to coordinating distribution of donated goods to them.
"I am really so thankful for this MWS programme. I hope to use the money I've saved for my children's schooling next time. I am less stressed now and proud that I can support my children and other people," shared a beaming Madam Tan.
