Chinese New Year was made more meaningful for residents of an old folks home in Semenyih, Selangor, who received gift bags.

In its efforts to share festive happiness, S P Setia’s charity arm S P Setia Foundation delivered gift bags to 36 residents of non-profit Joy Garden Old Folks Home.

The gift bags contained toiletries and essential items such as pyjamas, socks, bath towel, face towel, shampoo, shower gel, toilet rolls, instant oat drinks and biscuits.

S P Setia Foundation trustee Dr Azura Mansor said the gift bags were prepared by the foundation as well as members of Team Setia.

“We hope the items will be useful for the residents.

“We aim to help more communities in need through our on-ground activities in the future,” she added.

Through this programme, the foundation is also supporting the less abled community by purchasing socks made by residents from Lovely Disabled Home in the gift bags.

A special talk for the senior citizens was conducted by physiotherapist Eman Yazid, along with demonstrations of light exercises that help maintain joint health.

Dr Azura, who is also an orthopaedic surgeon, shared some advice on stretching exercises for the elderly to maintain and strengthen bone health.

Datuk Halipah Esa, who is on S P Setia Bhd’s board of directors, presented a token of appreciation to James Yong, who runs the home.

Also at the event were S P Setia group quality management general manager Goh Gek Ling, Setia EcoHill general manager Koh Sooi Meng, S P Setia executive vice-president Datuk Yuslina Mohd Yunus and S P Setia group branding and communications head Adelene Wong.
