The Struggle Mdm Norashikin, 49 years old, is the main caregiver for her youngest son (Rizqy) who is diagnosed with a list of chronic illness that includes Pallister-killian syndrome, obstructive sleep apnea, right hip dislocation, bilateral hearing impairment, and the list goes on. The 8-year-old is unlike other children his age and has been reliant on tube feeding since he was 2 years old. He is also unable to attend school due to his medical conditions and has to be reliant on mother’s 24/7 care. With the complex medical conditions of her son, Mdm Norashikin struggles with both caregiving duties and being the financial pillar for the rest of her 3 children.
Her husband works long hours as a delivery driver and earns $1,500 a month but that is insufficient to support the family and offset the SP Arrears that they have accumulated over the years
Help Needed - Give Hope Due to Rizqy’s condition, he needs to be placed in an air condition setting. This has resulted in the family incurring a massive amount of SP bills worth $4696.60 from their previous flat.
As a result of our last fund raiser, we helped Madam Norashikin offset $1,200 from the bill. She managed to pay off another $1,437 on her own but is now struggling to pay off the final $2,059.96. She received a final notice in February and a Small Court Tribunal Summon. She is scheduled to appear in Small Claims Court on the 10th of April.
Financial Breakdown Ray of Hope is raising $2,060 to offset the full amount of Madam Norashikin’s SP Arrears to allow her to focus on taking care of her family. Payments will be made directly to SP.
