poor family of 7

Norlida Mohd Noor is 32 and living in Kota Bharu. After her recent divorce, she had to take care of herself of her seven children. Indeed, the single mom has 6 kids all close in age (14,13,8,6,4,2). Taking care of her family has been really complicated for the mother. Her firstborn had to stop school to gain RM100/week working as a car wash cleaner. His three siblings were rotating between going to school and taking care of the two younger ones (4yo and 2yo) while Nordila was working.
The busy Mom was working as a janitor at Sultan Ismail Petra Airport earning around RM700/month. However, her salary and his son earning were barely enough to take care of the whole family.

Moreover, she had to quit her job as she explained. “While I was working, my second and third child helped take care of their two youngest siblings, but on one occasion, my two-year-old somehow managed to run out of the house and play on the main road under their supervision.” Losing her income, the Mom had to “depend on aid money from the Social Welfare Department (JKM), which is about RM300 a month.
