Outreach Brings Cheer to Retirement Home

Caring is sharing our love and joy with others. So, just before Christmas, the Section 20A St. Ambrose BEC organised a visit to the Mega Nursing Home at Section 14 in Petaling Jaya.

The nursing home houses 23 senior citizens and 6 helpers.

We started our outreach programme by singing Christmas carols. It was truly magnificent to witness the residents of the home and migrant helpers join in the singing and dancing.

For a few residents, the visit on 15 December was also a trip down memory lane, especially when one of our BEC members whipped out a harmonica and played Malay, Chinese and Indian songs of yesteryear.

As a community, we are blessed to be able to reach out, share and bring some cheer and joy to the less fortunate during this season of giving.

We also served the residents and helpers a range of assorted sandwiches, curry puffs and sponge cakes. Each were also given a Christmas gift pack.

But perhaps more than just the delicious food and gifts, what the residents of the home really cherished was the wonderful time our BEC members spent chatting and listening to them.
