Volunteers from Dufu employees spent a Saturday morning to visit and bring cheers to 27 senior citizens at the Rumah Charis located in Relau, Penang in commemoration of Chinese New Year. Rumah Charis provides a place to stay for elderly people who are often destitute and homeless. The home also provides them with spiritual guidance and counselling, as well as help in medical care and treatment.
The programme began at 10.00am with a briefing about Rumah Charis by their caretaker. After the briefing and Q&A session, we mingled around with the senior citizens. At 11 am, we were given the opportunity to serve the senior citizens with cakes, cookies and pastries. After the eating session, the old folks and 10 caretakers were presented with angpow and goody bags. The Company donated RM2,000 whilst our employees contributed RM3,925 cash which were used to buy foods, groceries, toiletries and adult diapers. Our presence on that day brought much happiness to the senior citizens who are always looking forward for someone to visit them and spend time listening to them.
