Youth Development & Poverty Alleviation
Three meals free of worries
The pandemic has taken a toll on the economy, with people from all walks of life feeling the strain. Many people have become jobless or under-employed, with low-income families in particular struggling to make ends meet. Mr and Mrs Chan, together with their two children, have keenly felt the economic impact of the pandemic. The couple used to work in catering but Mr Chan lost his job as a waiter after Covid-19 broke, forcing him to work longer hours as a security guard. Mrs Chan, who worked as a chef, was requested to take no pay leave. Their family income is now down by a third from before.
