Madam Tan* suffered from multiple physical problems and was certified unfit to work in 2008. In 2013, her husband, the main breadwinner of the family, was incarcerated for drug trafficking. To add to her woes, her two teenage children also had health problems and as a result, dropped out of school.
In 2014, she decided to approach The Salvation Army Family Support Services (FSS) for assistance as FSS was located in the same neighbourhood where the family stayed in a 2-room rental flat. FSS helped to provide food and transportation expenses for her younger son as he managed to get a place in a school.
In a small way, we provided Mdm Tan with some form of respite. You too can do your part by donating to support our work as Mdm Tan is one of the many cases that we encounter on a daily basis.
