It is sad to be in the hospital on Mother’s Day, whether you are a mother staying with your sick child, a new mother who just gave birth to a preemie, or a mother who had just had surgery.
However, there are always ways to cheer them up and lift their spirits and this is what the Perak Sikh Women Awareness Network (SWAN) did when they organised a visit to Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun (HRPB), Ipoh on Sunday, May 14.
Smiles were etched on the faces of patients and family members of those at the women’s ward of HRPB when they received a visit from SWAN.
The objective of the campaign, according to one of its members, Premjit Kaur, was to cheer women on this special day and to make them feel special.
The team spent about two hours walking from bed to bed in four wards to distribute goodies to about 100 patients. They were accompanied by guest of honour Keshvinder Singh and Dato’ Dr Jasvinder Singh.
