“It is ok at times to cry and let it all out.”  Mdm J* shared. Mdm J is a beneficiary who has come a long way after receiving help from Children’s Society. The strength of a mother is like no other, and Mdm J’s story is a perfect example of this.

Mdm J is a single mother with five children who has had to overcome challenges such as spousal abuse, which caused her to struggle with financial and emotional issues for the past 3 years.

Despite that, Mdm J persevered. To help her family tide through the difficult period, Yishun Family Service @ Children’s Society assisted by providing counselling support, regular food rations, interim financial assistance and applications and referrals to other agencies for various forms of aid. The financial assistance helped to support part of the family expenditure and the children’s schooling expenses.

With all this support in helping her family meet its basic needs, Mdm J was then able to focus better on seeking employment. She is now gainfully employed as a part-time cashier, and the flexibility of her job allows her to prioritise her children’s needs.

Having recently moved into their new rental flat, Mdm J expressed a sense of relief at knowing she and her children have their own space now and would no longer need to worry about accommodation issues.

This Mother’s Day, let’s not forget the mothers who struggle in silence. The mothers who try their hardest but sometimes still fall. The mothers who give their all but still worry that they don’t measure up.

Yishun Family Service @ Children’s Society has a support group for single mothers. The next run is happening early next year. If you or someone you know might need help, you may register your interest at: 6753 7331, or email yishunfsc@childrensociety.org.sg

Please donate generously. Your support will help families like Mdm J’s, and every donation you make will impact our beneficiaries more than you know.

Help make Mother’s Day a meaningful one this year!
