We had a splashing good time with our beneficiaries from Star PALS at Punggol WaterPlay and the supportive staff from Deutsche Bank Singapore!
It was a refreshing time for caregivers and the family to gather, relax and recharge.
“I am heartened by the works of HCA Hospice Care, enabling patients and their loved ones to create precious memories to find comfort in one day, enabling patients to finish their live journeys well, in the comfort of their homes and providing support to their loved ones,” says Ai Cheng who never fails to be enthusiastic in the presence of the little ones.
“Let’s do it again!”
Without hesitation, Ai Cheng is ever ready to take up new projects and organised outings. She hopes to organize more events where patients can participate, and reach out to more families – they need not be alone in their journey.
“There is always the apprehension if beneficiaries will find the event enjoyable. But after the event, I’m glad to see them enjoying, happily interacting and playing with the volunteers,” says Ai Cheng, spokesperson of Deutsche Bank who strongly believes in the cause.
Volunteers from different divisions of the bank, ranging from front office to infrastructure/support functions usually get together to render their time and efforts for the beneficiaries at HCA Hospice Care.
The fear of not getting enough volunteers and medical attention which may be needed in the course of the event worries Ai Cheng the most. However, these proved to be unfounded.
Families were swarmed with the love from volunteers and everyone felt assured with Dr. Ann, Star PALS medical doctor in attendance during the event.
“I am especially encouraged when a mother told me that the event is one of those few occasions where she can bring her child out. Even though the child cannot participate in the water play, there is that festivity and atmosphere that she can feel part of,” says Ai Cheng. These are what motivates her to carry on doing what she does for HCA Hospice Care.
HCA Hospice Care is privileged to be the chosen beneficiary of Deutsche Bank.
Deutsche Bank Singapore started collaborating with HCA Hospice Care in August 2013. They’ve participated in many voluntary events such as outings with HCA Day Hospice patients to spring cleaning for our home hospice patients.
Last year, HCA Hospice Care was nominated as one of the four beneficiaries of Deutsche “Donate-a-day” campaign where staff donated a day of their salary. They have been an extremely supportive sponsor and there are countless things to thank Deutsche Bank for and the list continues.
