“Obey the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart. Remember the great things he has done for you. (1 Samuel 12:24)”
Blessings abound as our team at G&L Surgical and Dr Ganesh Ramalingam met many residents with early Christmas cheer with our special little guest!
Dr Ganesh believes that Christmas is a season for the Lord’s inception and counting our blessings from His sacrifice for us. The smiles from each and every household shone with the spirit and the Lord! We are all so grateful to Him, his sacrifice and His blessings and especially the fact that He has given us the opportunity to visit and touch the lives of about 240 households and about 320 seniors this Sunday morning with our sponsorship of bento sets!
This was part of a bigger drive to regularly supply basic food necessities like a bag of rice, canned food, fruit, cake and napkins. The whole fruitful morning was spend packing the items and bringing them up to the residents. Today, Dr Ganesh feels that most importantly, we were able to communicate with the people to understand their current situation and explore ways to help them with their needs like cleaning up the home, maintenance of their appliances and application of basic necessities like electricity and water if they were cut.
With an increasing aging population, many of them are living alone or are childless. With concomitant higher living standards, some senior citizens who are low income earners struggle, while some are unemployed due to old age, lack of education or illnesses.
We at G&L Surgical now understand the needs and living conditions of these seniors.
Dr Ganesh Ramalingam and the G&L Surgical team are very touched by His Grace to have met the volunteers who spend twice a month, every second Sunday, to help these households. We pray that more will have this opportunity too every day of our lives! God bless everyone this Christmas!
