At 70 years old, Mdm Kok Yoon Hin (left in pic) lost her husband to diabetes. He had been her closest companion for 45 years, and she was so used to fussing over his needs as his sole caregiver. Without him, life suddenly became empty and meaningless, and she spent her days wandering around the neighbourhood aimlessly.
Her turning point came a year later, when she discovered TOUCH Senior Activity Centre (TSAC) on one of her walks. She was delighted to find a place where seniors gather for fun activities and are active in their autumn years. Her newfound elderly friends at TSAC are her source of joy.
Mdm Kok now has a new purpose in life too! Every Monday, she volunteers to visit two homebound elderly from TSAC and chat with them. With her encouragement, these lonely seniors are able to
see the brighter side of things in life. Mdm Kok's golden years are once again filled with meaning and joy!
Donors like you give Mdm Kok hope in life. That is why it would mean so much if we can count on you to make a gift to our beneficiaries. No matter what amount you decide to donate, it will make a lasting impact, and give them a better tomorrow.
Thank you so much for caring about people like Mdm Kok!
