Kwai Lin’s Story
Kwai Lin is a 37-year-old single mother. She was previously a member of our centre a few years back but had left after she successfully found stable work. When the pandemic hit, she was working at a Chinese restaurant. Her income dropped from HK$11,000 to HK$6,000 a month. To save money, she moved from a HK$3,500/month subdivided flat to a tiny capsule room, saving HK$2,000.
The MakeItWork staff learned about her difficult situation and provided food assistance, emotional support, and job consultation to Kwan Lin to alleviate her burden and relieve some of her stress. Recently, she has taken initiative to enroll in an employment retraining course. She hopes to one day find a full-time job as a care worker in the nursing care industry to help people in need in the future. Good luck, Kwai Lin!
