Loving Her Kids Into Their Future

After her husband died, Mrs Szeto felt like the only way forward in her grief was to focus on her two young sons, aged 12 and 7, and pour herself into their learning to give them a strong future. The family of three now lives in a small public housing flat, with basic furniture, but Mrs Szeto takes every possible opportunity to enrich the lives of her sons with sports activities and support of their academic projects. When she visited Crossroads for some furniture, referred by her social worker, Mrs Szeto was excited to see a small set of chairs and folding table that weren’t just compact, but looked cute and fun enough to entice her sons to spend time on their homework! It was our privilege to help Mrs Szeto in her quest to support her boys, with all the love of a mother’s heart.
