Sorry to hear about your wife. I suggest you seek financial help with the relevant welfare organisations and authorities. There are many schemes for low income households.

Take care and all the best.

Thank u for the concern but will not be seeking any financial help at the moment. There are many more who are more unfortunate than me. By seeking help would deprive someone of that chance, someone who needed the help more than I do. We are contented to have a roof, 3 meals a day and good health. Thats all that matters.

Since you have 3 children and a big HDB loan, it is best you get financial help. You can call the Comcare helpline. I think you are spending too much on your kids given your low income. With financial help, you may get help for your kids' kindergarten and school fees. You can then use the savings to buy insurance (health & accident) for your family (assuming you don't have) or build up your emergency fund. You are actually one pay check away from financial crisis. This is my sincere advice.

People like you restore my faith in humanity. Your post also lends perspective to all those on this forum who seem to earn a lot but are never contented.
