Sian Chay Warm May Mother’s Day Event—Walking with Love

Sunday, 12th May 2019

“The thread in mother’s hands makes a gown for her parting son”. Mother is the harbour of our souls, and mother’s love moistens our heart. “Such Kindness of warm sun cannot be repaid by grass?” How can we repay the endless love of mother?

Mother delivered us to the world with the warmest embrace. Mother is the most powerful guardian protecting us from wind and rain. Her love is higher than the sky and deeper than the ocean. But she never speaks about her love because loving you is her innate nature without words.

Brainchild of Mr. Toh Soon Huat, JP, Advisor of Boss Group, Executive Chairman of Novena Foundation and Chairman of Sian Chay, Boss Group became the first charity to sponsor and distribute carnation to mothers in Singapore in 2011. Chairman Toh appealed to the public to share and spread the belief of gratitude and repay mothers together with everybody.

Sian Chay Mother’s Day Event started in 2015 with the support and participation from various sectors over the years. In 2017, Sian Chay distributed a total of 217,600 pink carnations on Mother’s Day, including 7,000 for the patients at the 15 branches of Sian Chay, and the rest 210,000 carnations were distributed by 2,000 volunteers at 100 locations islandwide.

Prime Minister Mr Lee Hsien Loong also distributed the carnations together with Sian Chay staff and volunteers. He also posted on the Facebook, wishing all the mothers a happy Mother’s Day. He wrote, “Joined fellow Ang Mo Kio Town Council MPs and volunteers to distribute 10,000 pink carnations to Sengkang South mothers and residents this morning! Glad to see many mums and their families out and about enjoying their Sunday. Sian Chay is a VWO providing free traditional Chinese medicine consultation and treatment for the community regardless of race or religion for over a century. My thanks to the Ang Mo Kio GRC and Sengkang West SMC CCCs for supporting this initiative. You certainly put a smile on many faces today! – LHL”

Such a warm act was also recorded by the Guinness World Records and the Singapore Book of Records, and has become a historic moment in Singapore’s philanthropy.

On 12th May this year, Sian Chay together with YI Jia International Group will jointly host the “Warm May Mother’s Day Event”, distributing over 100,000 carnations to the mothers throughout the island by our volunteers and staff. Special thanks to Gambas Division for the support.

Toh Soon Huat, Chairman of Sian Chay Medical Institution, said, “Every mother in the world is great. Let’s celebrate the great mother love! We continued the carnation distribution on Mother’s Day. We wish more mothers would feel the filial affection and respect from their children, happy and joyful. We would like to pay tribute to the great mother’s love and call for filial piety, respect and feedback.”

Mr. Ong Ye Kung, Grassroots Advisor of Gambas grassroots organisations and Minister for Education, will officiate at the opening ceremony of Gambas Branch and the Mother’s Day celebrations on May 12 at 12.30pm. Dato George Guo, Founder and Chairman of Yi Jia International Group,  Mr. Toh Soon Huat, JP, Chairman of Sian Chay Medical Institution, and the Board Directors and community leaders will also join the celebration together.

Mr. Toh Soon Huat has been promoting the five core values of Sian Chay, Forgiveness, Universal Love, Compassion, Gratitude and Blessing. Meantime, he rallies the Sian Chay staff to actively support the nation building and social harmony and to adhere to the motto that “From the society, For the society.”

He said, “Let’s work together to care for the vulnerable and needy by contributing money or labour to charity. Nation Progresses, Family Prospers. Family Harmony, Successful Endeavours. Forward with the Nation, Bonding with the People. It will make a better and harmonious society.”

He called on everyone to keep propagating the righteous beliefs of tolerance, compassion, gratitude, and universal love to the public. ” The gratitude and public consciousness shall make the world at peace and in harmony.” The traditional Chinese cultural values, tolerance, compassion, gratitude, filial piety, giving back, ​​that inherit the bright and positive energy, are praising the great maternal love.

Through the Mother’s Day Event, Sian Chay TCM charity platform will be shared with more people, so that more people can know about Sian Chay, understand Sian Chay, and improve Sian Chay. We expect more people to join Sian Chay to do good deeds, give back to the society, benefit the people, and create a harmonious and beautiful social atmosphere!

Mother’s Day Event is also the embodiment of this responsibility and love.

Hereby, we wish all mothers a Happy Mother’s Days!

Sian Chay Medical Institution also hopes to promote the carnation distribution project to the world. There will be a Mother’s Day carnation station and person in charge at every corner of the city. This event will also provide flowers and T-shirts to charities, nursing homes, and etc.
