Looking For Poverty Solutions

Hey everyone, Paul Mae here! With cheerful greetings of ‘Selamat Pagi!’, our staff and interns brought the office to the low-cost flats of SS13, Subang Jaya. Today, we visited 6 families facing financial difficulties due to critical health problems. Interns Alethea and Nathan were exposed to first-hand experience on grassroot issues. Our office is looking into more sustainable solutions for poverty eradication – i.e., minimum wage.

A big thank-you to Puan Zaiton from Surau SS13 for liaising with the families involved. Also, special thanks to Oscar from MPSJ for accompanying us as we went from one house to another.

A taxi driver forced into early retirement due to amputation of his last toe. One infection after another leads to loss of income over the last 3 months.

A father supports 4 children with his small ‘makanan gerai’. Unfortunately, a critical heart problem leaves them helpless for 3 months.
