Mdm Lee's husband met with a tragic care accident and passed away a decade ago. She had to depend on her second son to support her as her eldest son gambled and was unable to keep a job, while the youngest son was estranged from the family. However, this arrangement was short-lived as the second son succumbed to cancer and passed on a few years later. Without any source of financial income, Mdm Lee fell into depression.

The Salvation Army Family Support Services (FSS) came to know of Mdm Lee's situation in 2012 when she was 70 years old. They started counselling sessions for her and gave her supermarket vouchers. FSS later changed to cash assistance so she could go to the wet market as she had become frailer. Currently plagued by asthma, heart problems and mobility difficulties, FSS helps to bring Mdm Lee for her medical appointments. In addition, a social worker from FSS visits her monthly to ensure that she is coping well.

There are many groups of disadvantaged and needy people who require support to improve their lives. Please think about those who truly need a helping hand and give generously, thank you.
