Ensuring Welfare Aid Supports Single Mothers

In a tweet posted yesterday, Dr Hartini Zainudin shared a story about a case she was handling, where a single mother and her two children were forced to leave their home after being unable to pay their rent for thirteen months. We discuss what's lacking in our welfare aid for single mothers, and how it can be strengthened to support these women and their children.
