1 in 10 Singaporeans are unable to meet basic needs in the form of food, clothing, shelter and other essential expenditures.
For Vanessa, safety was a luxury. The lock on the front door of Vanessa’s home would no longer open. The only way to get into the flat was to break the lock. Vanessa’s husband works, but the family didn’t have enough disposable income to pay a locksmith $190. At the same time, they were scared to leave the house with the door unlocked, so Vanessa stopped going out. Thanks to ONE (Singapore)’s Emergency Fund assistance, the family’s home is secure again.
