I wish to share about this instance of great community spirit and friendship. Last Sunday afternoon, Uncle Sim’s motorised wheelchair stalled on the pathway opposite Bukit Merah View Hawker Centre. Thankfully, the stallholders at the hawker centre worked together to help to figure out the fault. It turned out that the battery was running low.
Another kind uncle on a motorised wheelchair lent us his charger, and the fruits stallholders offered their electrical outlet for Uncle Sim to charge up his wheelchair while waiting for the afternoon rain to subside.
Before long, the rain subsided and uncle’s motorised wheelchair was all charged-up for his ride home! It was really heartwarming to see everyone in our community working together and looking out for one another. This is indeed an inspiring example of a caring community that we are building.
