Tom was a tour guide who lived with his wife and 12-year-old son. Unemployed due to the pandemic, he once enrolled in a security course in hopes of landing a new job. But because of his physical condition and old age, he was unable to find one. He sustained for a period with his own savings and loans from friends, but eventually, he seeked help from our social workers. During the interview, Tom could no longer held back the heavy pressure and emotions and started crying... He felt guilty towards his family, especially his son who had just started secondary school. The only thing he could do was to starve himself and let his family eat first.
Food Angel launched the "Automated Food Dispenser Service" of Jockey Club Food Assistance Programme to assist cases like Tom, providing them with daily meals along with soup and snacks. Tom feels the heavyweight lifted from his shoulders, that he no longer needs to worry about feeding himself and his family. He kept thanking the community for their support, saying it pushes him to keep trying hard on finding a new job.
Please continue to support our work so we can carry on to spread love for the needy in our community, especially in this challenging time.
