MORAL ANGELS’ VOLUNTEERING GROUP
CNY BAZAAR AT MORAL HOME

Objective
The Chinese New Year Bazaar is the first event of 2017. It was held in Moral Home for Aged Sick on 14th Jan 2017 from 2pm to 6pm. The objective is to let the elderly experience the joy of shopping during Chinese New Year. In the past years, we always brought 20 elderlies out on CNY shopping so this year we decided that we wanted to bring the CNY bazaar to Moral Home instead.

Angels Strength
We are fortunate to have 37 volunteers helping out today. The number of elderlies who took part in the shopping is around 30.

No matter how busy they are, volunteers always have time to
take photos.

At around 2pm, Jinxiong gave a briefing to all the volunteers.
We were given a refresher on how to push the wheelchair by Sam.

At 2.30pm, the elderlies were wheeled down into the canteen. Volunteers served the elderlies with some light refreshment such as siew mai and lotus paste bun.

At close to 3pm, we started the event with a bang! Volunteers were handed $20 voucher and a plastic carrier. They then paired themselves to the elderlies and set off exploring the stalls with enthusiasm.

Business here was so good they had to turn away customers.

The bazaar continued until 3plus and we sang some CNY songs to give the bazaar some festive mood. At 4pm, we set off to the nearby Bedok Hawker Centre with 16 elderlies.

At the hawker centre, we went about buying the food and drinks for the elderlies while others interacted with the elderlies.

When the elderlies have filled their tummies, it was time to bring them back to Moral Home.
