03 Aug 2021 12:04pm
The number of single, unwed mothers has averaged 830 a year in the past five years and the figure has declined over the past 15 years. Answering an MP’s question on this as well as whether these women have needs that are not being addressed, Minister of State for Social and Family Development Sun Xueling said a range of help is available to them, from financial assistance to housing, social and job support, caregiving and counselling. Their children also get all Government benefits. Ms Sun spoke in Parliament on Tuesday (Aug 3).
