STOMPer Cyberdog was sad to see a blind elderly woman having to sell newspapers with her young grandson sleeping on the ground just beside here.
According to feedback from several STOMPers, the elderly woman's stall is located at Block 339 Ang Mo Kio.
Said the STOMPer:
"Two years ago, the poor boy's parent disappeared, leaving him with his old grandparents.
"I remember seeing his grandparents carrying him as a baby and selling newspapers everyday.
"A few months ago, the grandfather was not seen anymore, and nobody knew what had happened to him.
"The grandma, unfortunately began turning blind yet had to continue taking care of the boy by herself.
"Since then, I still see the grandma selling newspapers but unable to use eyes to count the change for her customers.
"The boy sleeps sleeps next to his grandma's stall everyday.
"I'm a poor guy and unable to help much, except to buy newspapers from her.
"I really hope that the government will provide some help to this poor family.
"It is so sad to watch the boy sleep on the floor like a beggar and the blind grandma having to sell newspapers to support the family.
"God bless this family."
