My Dear Child, Thanks for Your Understanding

"Mom, if I don't eat as much, can you just work less hard?" Erica's mother is a foreign spouse, who came to Taiwan away from her hometown. After separating from her husband, she has been alone in raising her child.  Especially this year is extraordinarily difficult. Due to the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic, the store she works at for a part-time job was closed down. She has been unable to find a stable job easily but can only work as temporary worker everywhere to meet basic needs for daily life.  

Faced with such an embarrassment, the sensible Erica knew that her mother was busy from morning till night, just to allow herself and the daughter to get by for a minimum wage. One day she looked at her exhausted mother and suddenly said " Mom, if I do not eat as much, can you work less hard?" The child's sensibility and consideration made Erica's mother feel deeply sorry. She was apologetic of how Erica feels about the current situation with the precocious response and blamed herself for not being able to give her child perfect care.  

Erica's mother also tells our community common good partner, "I really appreciate the Mustard Seed Mission Community Network sponsorship service, and this immediate anti-epidemic emergency relief fund has allowed our family to spend during hard time; the staff of Mustard Seed Mission visits and cares us from time to time, while they also help comfort our uneasy and confused mood."

Looking at Erica's thoughtfulness and feeling the care from society, Erica's mother said that "even if I face lots of uncertainties ahead, because of companionship and support from many people, I can have the courage and strength to continue and moving forward. I also hope that Erica will be the help of others in the future, able to spread joy to children, and help more people in need just like we are being helped now."

The Mustard Seed Mission Community Network works together with families in distress and gives caring for those in need. The love of you allows the community to take a big step forward, and help disadvantaged families and children stand up again and keep moving on. With emergency relief, vulnerable families can be timely supported and resettled for the next page of life.
