After our last meeting where we had decided to visit homes and assess which families we felt needed help and hand holding, we took a pause to check if we could work with organisations doing work in this area. Well, folks, we checked that option out this Saturday and it is so not working out. So it was back to Plan A and we've got our first home visits done today.
Thanks Aparna, from the non blogging side of our team, and a brave girl who trekked all the way to Govandi on her weekly off to visit two families. She will file a detailed report tomorrow but here are her initial impressions:
Government relief cheques have reached both homes promptly.
A job needed for a 12th standard student.
A lady with three small children below six who needs a house. And a means of livelihood in the neighbourhood.
More details with Aparna's report tomorrow.
