    Default Advise for a friend that needs help.

    Hi everyone.

    I got a girl - friend , she is 20years-old , No parents, lives with sick grandmum and a 15year-old sister. She earns less than $500 per mth. She has a case of Serious Asthma and needs medication everymth that cost at least $150. She got to support herself, sick grandmum , younger sister , pay water/electrical/gas bills. And everyday she only eats 1 meal a day, not enough money to eat for the rest of the day.

    I'm wondering , any goverment agency got any aid for people like this ?

    Hope that anyone can give any advise.

    She can go for social welfare. If she does go to hospital for her medication, she can ask from her doctor for referral to get support. Probably a medical social worker will interview her and her family to get appropriate support for her and her family.
