Thanksgiving to Mother in Warm May: Tell Her You Love Her

Mother is the one who delivered us to this 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 talk about her love because loving you is her natural instinct.

13th of May is “Sian Chay Warm May Thanksgiving to Mother Day”. During this event, Sian Chay Medical Institution’s our volunteers and staff distributed Mother’s Day pink carnations to every mother at the 15 branches throughout the island.

“We continued the carnation distribution on Mother’s Day this year. We wish more mothers could feel the filial piety and respect from their children, happy and joyful. We would like to praise the greatness of our mother’s love and call for filial piety, respect and feedback.” said Toh Soon Huat, Chairman of Sian Chay Medical Institution.

Sian Chay Mother’s Day event started in 2015 and has been supported and participated by people from all walks of life. On Mother’s Day in 2017, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who was on the scene to distribute carnations with Sian Chay staff and volunteers, also posted on his Facebook, “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. Thanks to the Sian Chay Medical Institution for presenting the flowers. Sian Chay is a VWO that has been providing free traditional Chinese medicine consultation and treatment for all, regardless of race or religion, for more than a century. My thanks also 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”

Mr. Toh Soon Huat has been promoting the 5 core values of Sian Chay, which are Forgiveness, Universal Love, Compassion, Gratitude and Blessing. Meantime, he rallies the Sian Chay staff to actively support nation building and social harmony and to adhere to the motto that “benefiting from the society, paying back to the society.”

Trust, Action, Attitude, Conduct form the integrity and virtues for charity work. Mr Toh 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.”
