Vincent is a visually-handicapped resident who stays in a two-room rental flat in Singapore and takes care of two other blind men. Having been diagnosed with kidney failure recently, the former busker can no longer strain himself physically, which causes him to struggle to make ends meet. With his accumulating medical expenses, how can he overcome these challenges?

2) Sheila’s story:

As a single mother, Sheila struggles to raise her nine-year-old daughter Vidya, whom she places all her hope in. Having escaped from an abusive marriage, she’s rebuilding her life again with Vidya in their three-room rental flat. But life isn’t easy – Sheila’s plagued with a myriad of health problems that has made her physically unsuitable for work. What help is she given? How does she cope?

The above photo stories can be viewed at the Singaporeans Against Poverty website.
