Story of Mdm S, Bless Family participant

Besides having to care for her six children, Mdm S and her husband were also the main caregivers of their elderly parents. When Mdm S and the husband approached RCS, they were struggling with caregiving stress and financial difficulties. We intervened and supported the family through our groceries distribution programme. This helped to relieve a part of the family’s financial burden and gave them more capacity to focus on other areas of need. Through BLESS Family programme, the family was equipped with the tools to build strong family ties and to provide better care for themselves and children.
