Mr Ashraff, 59 years old, used to be an able-bodied and self-reliant man who works as a security supervisor earning up to $2.5K prior to his admission. He was able to support both his ex-wife and his mother in law with the salary that he was drawing then. Unfortunately, Mr Ashraff had to undergo a surgery to amputate his left knee and right toe. This has resulted in him being retrenched from his previous job and his family leaving him. Without a stable income and without any family members to rely on, Mr Ashraff is struggling to make ends meet.
Help Needed - Give Hope
Mr Ashraff has depleted his savings as the bulk of it went to supporting his ex-wife and his mother in law. Despite him working hard for them, his ex-wife has gradually abandoned him in view of the physical and emotional burden incurred to her when Mr Ashraff amputated his leg. They are currently undergoing divorce right now and Mr Ashraff is living alone in a one room rental flat despite having difficulties in his activities of daily living.
Mr Ashraff has just been discharged and is still trying his best to maneuver around and getting used to the change. Being wheelchair bound, he often has difficulties getting around. Despite so, Mr Ashraff tries to get to his medical appointments via bus and the train. He even told us that he will only take a cab when it is pouring heavily, and he have no other way to getting to the hospital.
Mr Ashraff also told us that he used to be a workaholic and takes pride in working, thus the sudden change in mobility was difficult for him to adapt at first. Nonetheless, this did not stop him from seeking re-employment. Mr Ashraff told us that he has signed up for some courses from SG Enable and hopes to be able to work as a call assistant in lieu of him being wheel chair bound.
ROHI would like to support Mr Ashraff by helping to raise $1080.00 ( $360.00 per month for 3 months) while he waits for his public assistance to be approved. Please give hope and donate to help Mr Ashraff!
*Mr Ashraff is currently not receiving any public assistance support and his assistance is pending approval.

Mr Ashraff went for a customer service training course!
With your help and your kind donations, we were able to pass Mr Ashraff his first cheque disbursement of $360.00. Unfortunately, funds for Mr Ashraff’s case has not been fully raised and we are still $580.00 away from target! Please help the 59 year old amputee and donate to his campaign, as he continues to search for a job and get his life back in order.
Mr Ashraff was thankful for all the help that was extended, telling us how much this amount can help with his living expenses now that he has nobody to turn to. He also told us that he has attended a one week customer service course to upgrade himself. Ashraff told us that by going for this training, he hopes to be able to get a job in the customer service sector and be self-reliant again. He knows it is not easy to get a job but he also told us that won’t stop him from trying to look for one.
ROHI’s case workers were heartened by his determination and his positive outlook in life! We sincerely hopes that he will be able to get a job soon 😊
