Raya for Hope 2018

Date: May 28, 2018
Hari Raya is a celebration where families gather to mark the end of Ramadhan, a time where Muslims worldwide abstain from food from dawn to dusk. One of the main objectives of fasting is to help better empathise with the less fortunate. While many families have the privilege to celebrate Hari Raya, many of our beneficiaries do not have the luxury to do.Mdm Jalinah, who is featured in our Raya For Hope video, is a mother to 10 children between the ages of 5 – 17 years old. Yearly celebration for the family has been a very simple affair due to financial constraints. All Mdm Jalinah asks for this year is to be able to buy new sets of Raya clothes for her children so that they can celebrate Hari Raya with happiness.Another client, Mdm Lisa, has not had a happy celebration in years. Her children and her were subjected to physical, mental and emotional abuse by her estranged husband who is currently incarcerated for trying to set them on fire. Coupled with financial constraints, Mdm Lisa spends Hari Raya at home alone, not receiving relatives. ROHI is raising S$10,000 so that our beneficiaries can celebrate Hari Raya with dignity, pride and joy just like us. As we indulge in the festive season, let's not forget that a little goes a long way. Let us bring happiness to Mdm Jalinah and other beneficiaries as they celebrate Hari Raya with Hope.

Give hope to an abused mother and children

Mdm Lisa*, 34 years old, has lived a difficult and painful life. Her husband, whom she is currently seeking divorce from, has abused her and her children physically, mentally and emotionally. Mdm Lisa has been abused repeatedly throughout their course of marriage being slapped, pinched, kicked and punched. Her estranged husband also molested her 10 year old daughter. The most painful ordeal for Mdm Lisa however, was when her husband created a fake Facebook account and spread nude photos of her. Till this day, her photos can be found on the internet. He is currently in prison for attempting to set Mdm Lisa and her 4 children on fire. Mdm Lisa is currently unfit for work as earlier this year she underwent surgery to remove three soft tissue tumours on her legs and arm which caused her significant pain for months. She is currently recuperating from her illness and is required to undergo constant check-ups to ensure that she is fully recovered before she is deemed fit for work. Caring for 4 children on her own while recovering from her surgery and illness has been extremely difficult. To make matters worst, she is currently caring for her niece and nephew after their parents were no longer able to care for them. The added responsibility of caring for two extra mouths have left Mdm Lisa under tremendous stress. While she is receiving government assistance, her cost of living has increased and she is unable to fully provide for her children, niece and nephew. Mdm Lisa’s 2 room rental unit was extremely cramped and humid. There was not much space for us to speak hence, we spoke outside. Our meeting with Mdm Lisa was a difficult one. Mdm Lisa broke down and cried when she spoke about her daughter being molested and having her nude and passport photos spread on the internet by her estranged husband. She told us that she is still living in a nightmare, haunted by the actions of a man who was supposed to protect and love her. With 2 additional mouths to feed, Mdm Lisa is at her wits end. ROHI is therefore raising S$600 (S$150 x 4 months) to offset Mdm Lisa’s living expenses while she and her family try their best to heal and move on from a traumatic and abusive life. Please help Mdm Lisa and her family get back on their feet!   *Name has been changed in order to protect the identity of Mdm Lisa as she and her children are victims of abuse.

Gifts in Celebration


Instead of receiving a birthday present this year, or ang baos for your wedding, anniversary or graduation, why not ask your friends and family to make donation to ROHI cases instead?

You can start a fundraising page and send to your friends and family to tell them about you wishing for them to make a donation to ROHI instead of buying you gifts or giving you ang baos!
