Woodlands Care Home SG Botanic Gardens Outing (15 Dec 2018)

Last year, we took the residents of Pearl’s Hill Care Home to Botanic Gardens. This time, it’s the good folks of Woodlands Care Home. Hoping to see the sun come out Saturday morning! Many thanks to all volunteers and we will see you all tomorrow!

去年我们很荣幸地可以陪伴珍珠坊养身居的居民到植物园来。如今我们再次地很荣幸可以陪伴兀兰养身居的居民到植物园。希望明天是个大晴天。在此我想感谢大家的踊跃参与。我们明天见!

Tahun lepas, kami telah membawa penghuni dari Pearl’s Hill Care Home ke Taman Botani. Sekarang, tibalah masanya untuk penghuni dari Woodlands Care Home. Harap-harap cuaca Sabtu pagi nanti cerah. Dengan ini, saya ingin ucapkan ribuan terima kasih kepada semua sukarelawan yang sudi meluangkan masa untuk program ini. Jumpa kamu semua esok.

Visit to Emmaus Home for the Aged Bulacan Philippines (8 June 2018)

Emmaus Home of the Aged was established in 1984 by a Catholic priest in Malolos Bulacan Philippies aimed to provide a shelter for the poor, the elderly, and the sick.

The home has since thrived as a centre of love and compassion for and by the community.  Current headcount is 78 residents and 15 volunteer caregivers.

Mom celebrated her birthday with the residents of Emmaus Home, spending an entire morning exchanging stories about their families they so terribly miss.  We brought them boxes of coffee, milk, tea, crackers, biscuits, soap bars, shampoo bottles, toothpaste tubes, and toothbrushes.

Some residents could move around on wheelchairs.  There are also those who are tied to their beds due to old age and sickness.

A little chapel inside the home serves as a nice place for the residents’ daily prayers and a spot for them to gather around and chat with each other.

A mother may be quiet but she’s a warrior and her prayers can move mountains 🙂
