A teary Reid spoke to Jamaica Gleaner, saying that she was at the end of the rope and could not fend for her kids. The mom works on a farm in the community but says that the pay is meagre and cannot sustain the family.
“I’m in a sticky situation raising the four of them by myself. I try to contact the fathers but I’m only getting a little help now and again,” she said.
Two of her older kids are supposed to be studying online but haven't been able to access the class because she cannot afford a data plan for the phone.
“The life I am giving them is the life I got when I was growing up, and that is not enough. I wish I could do more for my kids. I just can’t do all that I want. At the end of the day, I just have to be strong because the kids need me,” she said.

In other news, Briefly News previously reported that six siblings who lost their father to Covid19 have been forced to live with their aunt. Carla Hamilton from Georgia, US, said that she was worried about her nephews falling into depression after losing their only remaining parent.
"I want them to be strong. So I was worried about their mindset, their education, they don't fall off, don't get into a depression," she said.
Responding to a study indicating at least 140 000 children in the US lost a parent or guardian to Covid19, Hamilton said it does not come as a surprise as she knows of numerous other children orphaned by the pandemic.
