Help Richmond bite
Organized by: asdasd asd
Many can speak clearly and normally. Many can eat whatever they want, be it chicken wings, pizza or beef. But Richmond cannot. Richmond has a serious underbite problem that affected his life badly. He could not speak and eat as normal humans can. He always have to repeat what he just said for a few times because people cannot seems to hear what he was trying to say. He have difficulty pronouncing words. Furthermore, he cannot eat properly because of his serious underbite, he was left with 6 pairs of tooth working. Which also means only 12 teeth are biting, top and bottom. This underbite problem left Richmond with a very low self esteem because he cares about how people look at him. He find himself ugly with a protruding lower jaw. He does not like to speak because people cannot hear what he is trying to say. Richmond is from a very low income family. He was on financial aid from Primary school all the way till his diploma in Singapore Polytechnic. Richmond's father work as a painter but its a odd job and his dad is always out of job. Richmond's mum work as a cleaner with only 1.2k per month. Richmond's sister is currently studying in Republic polytechnic. With such low income, he is unable to fix his jaw problem. Richmond is weak from young. He have many occurrence of seizure from young, resulting him in PES E9L9 in the NS. He is currently serving NS with a pay of $560. He have to foot some of the household bills and fork out some money for the family. Richmond wants to be normal again. He hates his ugly looking jaw. He hates it whenever people can hear what he is saying. Richmond hopes to get help so he can fix his jaw. He consulted a orthodontist at a Singapore subsided Dental centre, at National Dental Centre Singapore. He was quoted $5,885 for braces and $5k-$16k for the jaw reconstructive surgery. He have to do the braces because even if he skip straight to the jaw surgery, the upper teeth cannot touch the lower teeth. So to cure it, braces is need for the upper teeth to touch the lower teeth. No one in the family is able to help Richmond and he cannot help himself for such a huge amount. Richmond hopes to raise a sum of money to fix his jaw problem and so he can regain his confidence. This person is me. I hope someone can aid me for the jaw surgery.
