aLife Mothers' Assistance (ALMA)
aLife set up ALMA program to help alleviate hardships faced by low-income families with young or ‘special needs’ children, to ensure that these children do not go without basic sustenance in their crucial growing years.
aLife is committed to assisting new mothers who are in financial difficulty to provide the basic necessities to their newborn from birth up, until the infant attains the age of two (2).
aLife's ALMA volunteers visits the ALMA's families monthly to befriend and deliver the necessities to the client’s home. These include formula milk, disposable diapers and other essential baby care items like toiletries. aLife may also supply clients with other miscellaneous baby care and mother care items, for instance baby clothing, feeding bottles and breast pumps, cots and bedding items and so forth, depending on availability, and upon assessment of the client’s more immediate needs and household situation.
aLife reviews the client’s household situation and circumstances to see how best it can help the family. aLife collaborates with other voluntary organisations and government agencies to provide holistic help to the family.
ALMA Program is not just about delivering milk, diapers and other basic supplies to needy families, volunteers are also called to befriend and journey with them, providing the necessary support structure to decrease the social isolation experienced by families with complex needs. During the visits, volunteers interact and track the progress of the baby’s growth. It is a fulfilling experience to see healthy babies and families find their footing during the difficult moments of their lives.
