Diana* and Hisham* are another pair of siblings studying at the same centre at Nursery and K1 level. Recently, their father had a very bad accident and the family is in financial crisis. Due to this, they are not able to pay the monthly transport fees.
In both cases, each family has to fork out a sum of about $4,000 per year just on the transport fees of two children. This is a huge sum for a family with low income. At PPIS we encounter about six to 10 such cases per year that require a total assistance of about $20,400.
* Names have been changed to protect the identity of the children.
About the Charity
PPIS (Singapore Muslim Women's Association) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping less-privileged women, children and families through holistic community programmes. We offer Family Services, Student Care and Early Childhood Education through 16 Centres island-wide. Since 1952, we have helped 60,000 Muslim women, children and their families through services such as family therapy, fostering, early childhood education, after-school care and training. This year, we hope to raise funds of $1 million to continue to support the women, children and families that we are working with.
