MAKE A DIFFERENCE : SPONSOR A CAREGIVER

MAKE A DIFFERENCE : EMPOWER A MOTHER

CAMPAIGN CLOSED : Field Report (Make a Difference)

+ Visiting Madam Zanizah (by Fadli)

As the campaign draws to a close, I would like to say a big thank you to every one of you who has generously contributed to support Mdm Zanizah.

I visited Mdm Zanizah to find out how she was doing. Swelling with pride, she told me that her eldest son, Saifullah, has managed to secure an internship with the help of his school. If everything goes well, he will be able to find a job soon and earn his own keep.

On the other hand, she continues to worry for her second son, Syafiq, and her mother’s health.

+ Our donation

With the money raised, we bought some groceries and food items for Mdm Zanizah so that her family will have ample food supplies in the upcoming month of Ramadan. Upon seeing our contributions, Mdm Zanizah was at a loss for words. Even as she puts on a strong and positive front, I could tell that she is still struggling to make ends meet.

+ MOVING FORWARD

Thankfully, she has found a part-time job in the evening, after taking care of the needs of her children.

“Step by step, my situation is improving slowly. Knowing that so many people out there care for me and my family gives me the strength to carry on.”

Her tears of gratitude made me realise no effort is too small. Even if we are unable to sustain her in the long run, my heart is full knowing what we did at least puts a smile on her face.

 

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

+ INTRODUCTION

Imagine if you are the only person in the family capable of working to support your family of 4. Money is depleting day by day, but you cannot go out to work, because your family needs more than just financial support. Every single one of them has a special condition that requires your full attention. You wish you could split yourself into 2, 3 or 4; but there is only you.

Unfortunately, this situation is real and happening in our society.

+ MDM ZANIZAH’S STORY

I came to know about Mdm Zanizah through Jasa Aktivis, a social documentary series that I am hosting for Suria Channel. (https://video.toggle.sg/en/video/series/jasa-aktivis/ep8/562314)

A typical day in Mdm Zanizah’s life consists of 24-hour attention and care for her second son, Syafiq. Syafiq is a special child born with Down Syndrome and Epilepsy. He cannot be left alone because there is no telling when a convulsion might occur.

Mdm Zanizah’s first son, Saifullah, is a child trapped in an adult’s body. Even though he is 19 years old, he has the IQ of a 7 year old child and behaves like one. Taking care of him requires a lot more time, patience and attention.

On top of that, Mdm Zanizah has to care for her mother who is suffering from Stage 4 dementia. On some days, Mdm Zanizah busies herself with her children only to realize that her mother has wandered out of the house, nowhere to be found. Not only is it physically taxing, it is also emotionally painful to see her mother degenerating day by day, right before her eyes.

With 3 loved ones to take care of, Mdm Zanizah is unable to commit to a full-time job to earn a living. Any minute now, her savings will be depleted to pay for the medical bills incurred by her loved ones. When that happens, she will not have money to pay for her house and she risks losing her only shelter.

‘No use shedding tears or blood. I just have to carry on and give them my all. I still have to do this for many years, I cannot give up.’ 

+ WHAT MDM ZANIZAH NEEDS

Having no income, Mdm Zanizah is running low on household neccessities, and even food. Very soon, she will not be able to pay for her electricity bills and housing loan. More importantly, she is unable to afford the medical bills of her loved ones, who require constant medical care.

+ HOW YOU CAN HELP?

Help Mdm Zanizah tide over this difficult period while she looks for a job. Your small donation will go a long way in helping her sustain herself eventually.
