An uplifting story of a once-in-crisis ChickenSoup family was featured in the South China Morning Post today. Despite being raised in an impoverished single-parent household, 10-year-old Hubert has not given up his passion in sports and is aspired to become a future Olympian one day.
Hubert is the child of single mother Lisa, who struggles with mental health issues and once had a chest tumour. Hubert’s sister has serious special education needs, and the family lives under depressing living conditions along with the grandmother.
“We always ask ourselves: ‘If we did not help this family, what would happen?’,” our Donor Ambassador Inis told the South China Morning Post in an interview. “We would probably see them on the news the next day.”
After a series of tailor-made support from us on top of the donation from our generous donors, the quality of life for Lisa and Hubert has greatly improved. We are so proud to witness their changes and are grateful to have the support from many influencers like Vivian in joining us to cuddle crisis families with love.
Unfortunately, there are many other families in situations similar to Lisa’s but are still in crisis. Without adequate and appropriate support, they will likely end up on tragic headline news. Thanks to the continuous support from Operation Santa Claus (OSC)
, we are able to make “Project Family Cupid 3.0” a reality so we can continue to transform the lives of more crisis families. Stay tuned for more update!
