Mother’s Day Tributes

It takes an immense amount of courage for our families to share their personal journeys, given that they have been through extreme and sometimes traumatic hardships.  Zhen told the South China Morning Post how she found the strength to soldier on despite challenges on bereavement and coronavirus misery.

Words From Zhen

  • “Life is difficult, but I’m thankful that I have learned the importance of self-love through the support of CSF. I have prepared a birthday gift for myself the first time in my life, thanking myself for my dedication to my family.”

  • “After my husband died, what I did was try to encourage my children on a daily basis and be a role model to show them how life still goes on. I felt more positive when my home is kept in its pristine state.”

Celebrating A Soul-Good Journey
