Dear Friend,

When life deals you a bad hand, it is easy to plunge into the depths of despair. But not for Safri Bin Salleh, 43.

In April 2013, Safri dozed off after returning from his night shift. When his wife woke him up, he couldn't move and was paralysed from below his neck.

He was diagnosed with Stage 3 Bone Marrow Cancer.

Since then, his wife has been his full-time caregiver. His family relies on various financial assistance schemes from various organisations.

Safri's cancer was a jolt out of the blue. It reminded him that he has to take care of himself before he can take care of his family. He decided to put in more effort in ensuring that he and his family have a balanced and healthy diet.

"While I did not care for my body previously and instead abused it through the supplements I took, I decided to take better care of my health. While I did not care about what I ate before, now I take better care of my diet.

The monthly FoodAid worth $250 from the Singapore Red Cross benefit me and my family a lot because it enables us to have fresh food products, and my children can grow up healthily," he explained.

Many of our FoodAid recipients are like Safri. With your gift of a donation, you can help people like Safri and his family get rid of food worries, and they'll be able to buy and enjoy healthier food as a beneficiary of FoodAid.

On behalf of our beneficiaries, thank you.

Yours sincerely,
Mr Benjamin William
Secretary General/CEO, Singapore Red Cross
