In order to help families affected by the pandemic, Sian Chay Medical Institution will partner the Moulmein-Cairnhill community to distribute 200 Sian Chay Care and Share gift packs to HDB rental flat residents on February 21, 2021 to ease their life pressures.
Each Sian Chay Care and Share gift pack contained biscuits, instant noodles, rice, Milo, oatmeal and other halal-certified food worth $20.
Minister of State for Ministry of Trade and Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth and Tanjong Pagar GRC (Moulmein-Cairnhill) Grassroots Adviser Alvin Tan penned this in the greeting card: Dear Moulmein-Cairnhill residents, as we welcome the Year of the Ox, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a happy and prosperous lunar New Year. The past year was full of challenges, but with strength and determination, our MoCa family is united and looking forward to a better future. Here, we bring festive blessings to you and your family. Please accept the gift pack sponsored by our community partner Sian Chay Medical Institution. Thank you!
Toh Soon Huat, JP said that the Chinese character for country contains the word “family”. In fact, a home is like a small “country” and “country” is like a big “family”. The gift bags from Sian Chay Medical Institution may not be able to solve every difficulty of residents in life, but it can bring them warmth and hope in this extraordinary period.
So far, Sian Chay Medical Institution has distributed about 20,000 Care and Share gift packs to needy residents and HDB rental flat residents to help ease their pressure in life, care for them, and spread positive energy. We expect this care and concern gesture will benefit more people in future, and in turn more families.
Charity is about sharing and giving joy. Everyone is needed to work together and contribute to do good. The able should take on more social responsibilities to help the needy in society. Only then can society become more harmonious, joyful, bright and healthy.
I am very thankful to Mr Alvin Tan and the public for their support and encouragement to Sian Chay Medical Institution. Our blessings to them.
The essence of philanthropy is universal love, empathy, and partnering to do good together.
