I am Asuncion

I am Asuncion. I come from the Philippines. I have been working in Singapore for 8 years. The reason I came to work here is that I want my 4 sons to get a good education. I was widowed 10 years ago, so it was very difficult for me in the Philippines as a single mother. But I have just tried to do everything I can even in this difficult situation.

Now I am very sad because of a situation with my employer that made me come to the HOME shelter. I think about going back to my country, but the problem is I need to keep supporting my sons’ education financially so that they can finish their studies. In just 1 year my son will be an accountant.

But now I lost my job and Christmas is also coming. My family will need a small amount to celebrate the season. I hope that my employer can give me my release paper and that I can continue to work so that I earn money to support my family.

Merry Christmas to everyone!
