After being together with Project Awareness, I realised that we are fortunate compared to the needy families in Singapore. I never knew such places actually existed in a first world country.
Looking at so many families having to squeeze at a small accommodation together with their many children, having this consistent worry of not having food on the table, having various medical conditions, having not enough money to feed the whole family, and when they share their difficulties they faced, it makes my heart break.
There is a family at King George Ave, single mother with 7 children. Taking care of 7 children at her age is no easy feat for her. With that many children, she can never work as her youngest child is only 1 year old and she has to take care of the rest. Luckily, her eldest child is the most obedient of them all, having good results in school, learning to cook for the family and helping to take care of his brothers and sisters. I hoped that all of them grow up to be a fine person.
No matter how busy my schedule is, I will always spend time to volunteer and help those in need as much as possible. Let’s do our part and provide whatever help and support we can.
Kindness is everywhere and a little thought can mean so much! Remember to share and walk with us in Project Awareness.
