When Singapore announced a nationwide lockdown and home-based learning (HBL) programme in April 2020, chaos and concern arose among many vulnerable families.
Due to space constraints, computer shortages, and a lack of internet access, many such families were thrown into disarray. For Nooril Azura’s family, this was the predicament.
As a mother of four young school-goers, she values education above all else and found herself in desperate need of a computer for her children's HBL. Given the spike in layoffs during this period, which also threatened her husband's job security, Nooril Azura’s realised she had to step up and expand her home-based baking business, Qwlaaa, for good measure.
Hence, she reached out to SCC for help. Through the collaborative efforts of the community, she was gifted two preloved laptops, ensuring that her children's education was not compromised. This also allowed her to grow her business customer base more productively through the use of IT!
Nooril Azura and her family are deeply grateful to SCC and the community for their support during these uncertain times. In future, they hope to give back to the community in any way that they can.
