Mr Alias, 61 years old, has only primary 1 education as he never completed school. He has also never worked before because Mr Alias is almost non-communicative and understands only very basic instructions. Mr Alias does not know the day, date and time and does not know the neighbourhood that he is in. Mr Alias has an undiagnosed mental disorder and is entirely dependent on his brother, Mr Mohamad Shah for his wellbeing.
Mr Mohamad Shah, 74 years old, has taken care of his brother after their parents passed away many years ago. His typical day involves looking after Mr Alias who cannot be left alone. Mr Shah will ensure that his brother showers, brushes his teeth and changes his clothes daily. He also cooks and ensures that Mr Alias eats 3 times a day.
Mr Alias is unable to work due to his undiagnosed mental disorder and is unfit for work. Mr Mohamad Shah is 74 years old and is no longer fit enough to work. The brothers are currently living in a 1 room rental apartment and finances are tight.
Help Needed – Give Hope:
It is not easy for Mr Mohamad Shah to look after his special needs brother alone without any support from his other siblings. He constantly worries for the wellbeing of his brother including worrying where his brother would end up after he passes away.
Mr Mohamad Shah informs us that he and his brother, Mr Alias, consumes very basic food. Due to their tight financial constraints, they live a very simple life. The love Mr Mohamad Shah has for his special needs brother can be clearly seen. He informs us that his life now revolves around his brother and he is thankful that he is still healthy enough to be able to care for his brother, Mr Alias.
Ray of Hope would like to raise S$417 (S$139 x 3 months) to pay for their rent, utilities and conservancy charges. The money raised will be paid directly to the relevant agencies. Please give hope to both Mr Alias and Mr Mohamad Shah.
