aLife Mothers' Assistance (ALMA)

We help alleviate hardships faced by new mothers from 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.

What do we do?

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). We ensure that these babies do not miss out on the essential nutrients and foundation needed in their infancy.

Additionally, ALMA serves as a support system for the new mothers during their journey with aLife. Through ALMA's holistic approach, aLife aims for the ALMA families to feel heard and understood as they work towards breaking out of the poverty cycle and the difficulties that come along with it.

Supporting over 100+ families

aLife regularly reviews the client’s household situation to see how best it can help the family.

aLife collaborates closely with other voluntary organisations and government agencies to provide holistic assistance to the family. Eligible clients are accepted mainly on a referral basis from Social Service Agencies/Family Service Centres (FSC).  If you are a client who needs help, please seek assistance from the FSC nearest to your home.

What does a Befriender do?

ALMA Program is not just about delivering milk, diapers and other basic supplies to needy families, befrienders are also called to journey with them, providing the necessary support structure to decrease the social isolation experienced by families with complex needs.

aLife Befrienders listen and observe the overall well-being of the babies and their families, & feedback to aLife so the families situation are monitored & help can be rendered, if necessary.

Befrienders interact with the families, eventually form friendships, and provide a listening ear to these families. This is crucial as these beneficiaries might be experiencing caregiver stress and new mental challenges with the introduction of a new family member.

During the visits, befrienders 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.
