Individuals and corporate sector can do their part to bring joy to the elderly during festive season
Tobe Property Sdn Bhd’s Executive Director, Datuk Teo Shiok Fu JP and his friends, Tony Ong and Teh Kai Chuan visited 8 residents aged between 69 to 89 years’ old at the Rumah Orang-Orang Tua Sukarela Tampoi in conjunction of the Chinese New Year.
Each resident received an Ang Pow for the Lunar New Year, oranges and a goody bag containing necessities like Tiger Balm ointment, Cap Dua Singa medicated oil (sponsored), rice and food items.
The residents were also invited for a Chinese New Year lunch at Restaurant Liang Chen in Taman Perling where they tossed the traditional Yee Sang dish together for a Happy and Healthy New Year.
In February last year, Datuk Teo Shiok Fu visited the Home as the President of Rotary Club of Johor Bahru for 2017-18. This year’s visit was a personal one organised by him as a way of remembering and appreciating the elderly there.
It was a meaningful visit as the residents remembered Datuk Teo’s previous visit and Chinese New Year lunch last year.
Datuk Teo hopes that more people will do their part to bring joy to the elderly without families not only during the festive season but whenever possible.
