“The elderly are people I feel very close to my heart,” Abhijit says. “So when events like this happen it’s not just about my interaction with them; they, too, get to meet different people from various age groups.”
Sowing seeds of love
Urban farming is just one of numerous activities offered for the elderly by THKMC (Thye Hua Kwan Moral Charities). These activities are specially designed to help seniors get together and interact with the volunteers as they learn new things.
“The volunteers have brought great joy and comfort to us, especially during this pandemic,” shares Mdm Lim, a senior beneficiary. “We appreciate their efforts and their time teaching us how to farm, and how to use our phones.”
Volunteer Abhijit lends his time and nimble green fingers to the elderly.
