Celebrating Yee Gu's 100th birthday at her flat
Mrs. Li, one of our staff at Food Angel Community Centre, is known as "the walking database". She remembers every detail of our beneficiaries, and she can easily name, for example, who does not eat beef, and who did not come to the Centre the day before. She cares deeply about each and every one of our beneficiaries, and Yee Gu is one of them.
Yee Gu used to have her meals at Food Angel Community Centre, but as her legs' conditions became worse, making the journey to the Community Centre was too difficult for her. Therefore, she has switched to our Outreach Service, in which Outreach Angels deliver hot meal boxes and food packs to her door. Since then, there is not a time when Yee Gu does not mention Mrs. Li to the Angels, to express her gratitude for Mrs. Li's care.
It was Yee Gu's 100th birthday this May, and Mrs. Li went along with other staff to Yee Gu's home to celebrate with her. They brought along a birthday cake, and sang her a birthday song. It was a simple but heart-warming celebration. More importantly, seeing Mrs. Li again brought the biggest smile to Yee Gu's face. The joy in her eyes reminds us our mission of serving “With Love”.
Donate and support Food Angel's meal service so more elderly like Yee Gu can receive more than just a meal from Food Angel.
