Hafiza told us, "I thought there will be light at the end of the tunnel. But things are getting extremely harder day by day,"
The 14-year old girl who lives in a rental flat holds the family of 7 together as her eldest brother seeks treatment in the hospital for brain cancer. While her mother goes out to work, and her father is absent, she looks out for her 3 other siblings at home.
Weeks into the global pandemic, Singaporeans are staying put at home. While there are many who are easily transiting to the new "normal", there is a number of us whose livelihood is at risk. They are struggling despite the financial support given considering the additional support required.
At Global Ehsan Relief, we are calling out for a collective effort to help the most desperate.
We are giving out $200 in cash plus $50 voucher for them to sustain financially by having 3 meals a day at least during these hard times. Your small contribution could help the lives of others even for a day. Think about your children, your parents. Would you let them struggle?
Rasulullah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “None of you will have faith until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself.”
(Anas Ibn Malik r.a.)
It is in hardships that our faith is tested and we will emerge to become the best version of ourselves. Together, let's lend a helping hand to our fellow Singaporeans who needs us.
