"I wake up daily longing for my children and grandchildren to call or visit me. They hardly do. I am now old and useless", lamented 88 years-old Mdm Kamsiah.

Mdm Kamsiah is just one of the many seniors in Singapore left behind by their own families. She once took up two jobs as a cleaner to raise her children and sent them to university. Today she is a widow living alone in a rented flat plagued by loneliness. COVID-19 pandemic has led her to feeling even more isolated and rejected.

When was the last time...
You appreciated your parents for their selfless sacrifices?
You thanked them for their unconditional love?
You said to them "I love you"?
You said to them "I am sorry, please forgive me"?
You bought them a gift or had a meal together?
You hugged them just like when you were young?
You called them and asked about their wellbeing?

Words cannot describe the width and depth of every parent's love. It is Priceless!

At Lions Befrienders, we make it our mission to reach out to socially isolated and lonely seniors like Mdm Kamsiah, to provide them with holistic care needed to lead happier lives. Today, Mdm Kamsiah found her family in Lions Befrienders Senior Activity Centre.

Give a Gift of Love in your parent's name Today! Your contributions are important for us to access resources and outreach programs to mitigate isolation and loneliness in seniors like Mdm Kamsiah.
