Easter Appeal 2024

Mdm Catherine Lim, 86, has always enjoyed leading an active lifestyle. She often participated in activities at the Presbyterian Community Services (PCS) Esther Active Ageing Centre (AAC) to keep her body and mind nimble. She especially enjoyed the ukulele classes at Esther AAC. 

However last year, she experienced a sudden pain in her knee, which has greatly affected her mobility. “It really feels torturous for me as I love being active,” shared Mdm Lim. 

When the Centre Head at PCS Esther AAC, Ms Amy Le, heard of Mdm Lim’s leg injury, she made sure to follow up via phone calls with Mdm Lim on her condition. “We make sure to stay connected with 

our members and check in occasionally should they need any assistance at home,” says Ms Le. 

“Amy called me, and when I told her that my toilet bidet was leaking, she sent a volunteer to fix it for me. I’m thankful for that,” says Mdm Lim. 

“We can even have haircuts at the centre so I don’t have to take the bus on my own with the wheelchair. I cannot bend down, so they even helped me to cut my toenails. I’m so grateful.” 

Just like how our staff has supported Mdm Lim, there are many more clients of all ages who need support. Your donation will help in the provision of our full suite of services.
