Mdm Salmah

Her once-empty days are now filled with the joy of new friendships.

Mdm Salmah (centre) is a client of AMKFSC Community Services Ltd, where befrienders engage her regularly and connect her to fellow seniors in the vicinity.

Mdm Salmah’s greatest fear as a senior is passing on alone. Having high blood pressure, high cholesterol and gout issues, this is a possibility she faces every single day. On some days, she feels giddy, presenting a high risk of falling.

Loneliness also hits Mdm Salmah the hardest whenever she is faced with the silence of being all alone in an empty house. This sadness has since diminished with the help of AMKFSC Community Services Ltd, supported by Community Chest, where senior befrienders engage her regularly and connect her to fellow seniors in the vicinity.
 
AMKFSC Community Services Ltd also supports her with food rations, brings her out on exciting outings and provides her with a wheelchair as her legs have grown weaker. Once a week, she attends their activities to meet new people and finds happiness in talking to others. Her once-empty days are now filled with the joy of new friendships.
