All it takes is a little kindness to make the world go around. Today, we show our appreciation to the people who built Singapore into the world-class metropolis that it is. And it doesn’t take much to make their day, just a few hours of your time and a listening ear, which the least we can do for these pioneers of Singapore. 

Sometimes we have to take a step back to appreciate the smaller things in life and maybe do something good for other people – which is exactly what the folks from Home Nursing Foundation (HNF), NTUC FairPrice and TENA decided to do.

With one of the fastest ageing populations in the world, Singapore has almost half a million people above the age of 65. With current resources stretched thin and a busy population, taking time to care for the elderly and keep them company during the day is easier said than done.

This October, three organisations partnered to give back to the elderly community with a fun-packed day for 18 elderly who deserved some fun in their lives. From a delicious meal to an all expense paid shopping trip at the local grocery store, it was a simple but great way to get involved with the elderly community.
