It was a superb show of generosity for a super mum.

Last Monday, The New Paper published a front-page report on Madam Seah Yu Ping, a single mother who takes on three jobs, sleeps just two hours a day and eats mainly instant noodles to support her family.

The 46-year-old divorcee has a 15-year-old son and also has to take care of her elderly parents, her brother, his wife and their child.

Since then, scores of readers moved by her story have come forward to offer all kinds of help. Madam Seah has had a job offer, others want to donate money, and even more readers want to give her computers.

That is because her only son, Malcolm Teo, a Secondary 3 student at Naval Base Secondary School, does not have a computer.

Read the full report in The New Paper on Monday (May 26).
