THE Perak Community Specialist Hospital, one of the oldest multi-disciplinary community hospitals, brought a little love and joy to residents from some welfare homes in conjunction of Chinese New Year.
Staff from the hospital visited Seri Bahagia Old Folk’s Welfare Association and Handicapped Children’s Welfare Home in Ipoh as part of their corporate social programme late last month.
The 44 elderly residents and 20 disabled children thoroughly enjoyed their company.
Hospital chief executive officer Nicholas Chan said they were honoured to celebrate the Lunar New Year with the elderly and also the underprivileged.
“We hope that this will instil love and joy and motivate the younger generation to be more compassionate with community projects like this,” he said.
The children’s home was also repaired courtesy of the hospital’s maintenance team.
Milk powder, canned food, deck chairs and rice cooker were among the items donated to the homes.
Together with the team, the hospital’s Consultant Interventional Cardiologist and Physician Dr Ng Seng Loong conducted a health check-up for the staff of the children’s home.
