Chinese New Year Lunch with Elderly from UMC Medicare Centre and Thong Kheng Seniors Activity Centre
HOPE worldwide (Singapore), together with a team from Hoe Seng Hoe Metal Company Pte Ltd, embraced the elderly at a teochew restaurant with Lou Hei, games, conversation and gifts.
It was a rare occasion for the elderly from EMC Medicare Centre to be out of the home for their Chinese New Year (CNY) celebration; and the time spent with the elderly was invaluable. The volunteers and elderly had Lou Hei and teochew cuisine for lunch, followed by a craft session where they made a CNY rattle drum, and ended off with a game of Bingo.
This yearly outreach has allowed the volunteers and elderly to forge great memories and the volunteers have found joy in serving the community. For the elderly, they were filled with immense gratitude to have volunteers from all walks of life bring more excitement and colour into their lives.
Mr Sam Chee Keong, Managing Director of Hock Seng Hoe Metal Company Pte Ltd, mentioned that the outreach objective is to bring warmth and care among the people, 温情满人间.
