Mooncakes Delivering Love on the Moon-lit Festival
The full moon shining on night of the Mid-Autumn Festival, what a beautiful scene and perfect timing for sending mooncakes! Blossom flowers and full moon symbolize the beauty and happiness. In conjunction with the festival, Sian Chay Medical Institution launched a charity activity of mooncake distribution. The event received the strong support from Ms. Sun Xiaobei, Founder of “Cai Yun Zhi Nan”, and many benevolent friends . From 17th ti0 22nd September , Ms. Sun Xiaobei led a dozen of volunteers to send flower cakes as festival gifts to the elderly and needy at Sian Chay 610 Geylang Main branch , Whampoa Branch, Gambas Branch, Yio Chu Kang Branch, Marsiling Branch and Moulmein-Cairnhill Branch. 200 boxes of flower cakes were sent during the activity.
The elderly and needy were delighted and grateful when they receive the flower cake gifts. One of the seniors who had chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, and his medical expense has been significantly reduced after a Member of Parliament referred him to Moulmein-Cairnhill Branch. Other elderly also appreciated the free medical services provided by Sian Chay Medical Institution under the Pioneer Generation Medical Fund which alleviated their concerns during the treatments.
Toh Soon Huat, Chairman of Sian Chay Medical Insitution, also participated in the event. He shared that, “Heartfelt thanks to Xiaobei for her kind deeds . Without her leadership, everyone will not be here today. I hope everyone will gain something through today’s charity activity. I also hope that you will set a goal for yourself, accumulating bit by bit. I hope that the mooncake distribution activity will be scaled up with more people involved, so that more elderly will experience the warmth during the Mid-Autumn Festival.”
He also hoped that people who visited the Sian Chay would keep a kind mind, say kind words, and do kind deeds, introducing more needy patients to Sian Chay for medical consultation and care, letting more people know about Sian Chay and make full use of Sian Chay TCM charity platform.
