Feb/Sept to Oct 2020: We started our Elderly Programme in February this year but was quickly asked to stop due to the pandemic. Fortunately, after months of silence, we were able to resume classes back in Sept with a special visit by Minister of State (MCCy), Mrs Low Yen Ling! It was a pleasant visit by the Minister who also helped our elderly in our last session. The elderly and I got along really well and it was yet another meaningful engagement with the old folks, getting to know them better through creating these wonderful pieces of art and craft works. Many of them are 65 years and above, the oldest being 85 years old!
All of them felt better engaged and motivated to keep their hands and minds active while challenging their patience and courage.
Here are some pictures of their wonderful work-in-progress and beautiful artworks!
