SEREMBAN: This year’s Inter­national Women’s Day will be more meaningful for single mothers here following an initiative by MCA Youth chief Datuk Chong Sin Woon to help set up an association to look into their welfare.

Chong said such an association was necessary after checks with the state Welfare Department showed that 90% of the 362 aid applications between October and February this year came from single mothers.
