In line with our objective to serve the needy in Malaysia irrespective of race and religion, we organised the annual Senior Citizens Appreciation Day to assist around 2500 senior citizens and people with disabilities in the year 2020. This marks the 15th year that we are coordinating this charitable event. The recipients received provision and two bags of essential household items.
In their senior years, many people feel that they are being neglected and underappreciated by the society; hence, this Senior Citizens Appreciation Program is held to show gratitude and appreciation to the senior citizens who have sacrificed and worked hard to serve this blessed country of ours. In our race to develop materially, we often forget to make the senior members of our society to feel needed and respected. An event like this will educate and remind the younger generation on the selfless contribution and services of the previous generation.
We hope our kind gesture will alleviate the financial burdens of the recipients and highlight the need and responsibility for us to care for the senior citizens in our community.
