What comes to mind when you think of birthdays? Parties? Cakes? Presents?
Meet Mr. Chua from Singapore who decided to celebrate his special day in a different way!
Together with the non-profit organisation, Happy People Helping People Community which offers help to the needy, Mr. Chua hosted a birthday celebration at a restaurant called 73 Hillcrest to feed 36 elderly cardboard holders.
Mr. Chua who gave each of the senior citizens ang pow packets, had the help of a few volunteers to make this special occasion possible.
The oldest of the guest, 94-year-old, Ms. Koh was so touched by this sweet gesture that she was moved to tears. Speaking to Happy People Helping People Community, Ms. Koh revealed that the donated sum would be of aid to her living expenses.
“She told me she can use the money to buy pampers for herself and her foster mother who is already very old and sickly,” stated the Facebook post which has since gone viral.
This heartwarming story caught the attention of many Netizens who have complimented Mr. Chua for his generosity.
