My father left the family and completely cut off all contact when my sister and I were very small. Therefore, my mother has to struggle a lot to raise my sister and me alone for many years. My grandmother, aunt and uncle all are suffering from mental illness, so they are unable to work but need lots of care from my mother. Even though I am young, I understand my mother's hardship when she has to try to manage everything in the family alone without a word of complaint. My mother makes money by selling traditional cakes at the market. She cannot work fully because she has to take care of our special family. As a result, my mother's income is low and unstable, not enough to pay all bills, medicine and study fees. Everything is out of my mother's reach and our family really is in dire need of help.



My sister and I are both primary students. I am in grade 2 and my sister is in grade 1. We can learn many interesting things and join in many activities at school with friends and teachers, which really makes us enjoy schooling very much. However, my mother cannot afford the study fees for both of us because she is the only earner in the house and has to pay for many other expenses. I really hope for a helping hand so that my learning path is secured and my mother's burden is somewhat released. Please help me!
