There was much laughter at the Home of the Aged, Kg Simee, Ipoh, when Selangor-based Cleanpro Laundry Holdings Sdn Bhd visited the centre recently.
The team came with a mission to help clean the home and entertain the residents. Chan Huei Ning, the corporate communication director of Cleanpro Laundry Holdings Sdn Bhd, was excited to be part of this charitable event.
“The timing of our visit couldn’t have been better. Upon our arrival, we’re informed by the management that the home’s washing machines had broken down. We’re more than happy to oblige and had the machines replaced,” said Chan to Ipoh Echo.
Besides cleaning the dirty linen for free, the team provided lunch and donated food hampers to the residents.
Judging from the many happy and smiling faces, Chan felt that his team had achieved what they had set out to do. He hoped to organise similar events in the future.
The Kg Simee old folks home is being managed by the Catholic Welfare Services.
