The case of three mothers and daughters in Suwon, who suffered from life difficulties and chronic illnesses, but died in a blind spot of welfare and without receiving support, shocked me last year.
Another heartbreaking incident occurred in Seongnam City, Gyeonggi Province.
According to the police, on the 9th of last month, a mother in her 70s and a daughter in her 40s were found dead in a multi-family house in Seongnam City, Gyeonggi Province.
Inside the house, there was a will that seems to have been left by a mother and daughter, with the words 'I became in debt while doing business' and 'I'm sorry for causing trouble' and 'I'm sorry again'.
It also contains the content of 'please handle the monthly rent with a deposit of 5 million won'.
Her daughter earned her living by running a clothing business, but her income was not constant, so she lived on debt.
Her mother and daughter were in the second class, just above the basic livelihood recipients, but they were not behind her utility bills or monthly rent, so they were not found in the welfare blind spot discovery system.
