PPB CELEBRATES CHINESE NEW YEAR WITH
Old Folks Home
In conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration, PPB brought cheer to senior citizens from two homes in Setapak, Kuala Lumpur. PPB treated 20 senior citizens from Sri Jayanti Metta Care Centre to a 9-course lunch and karaoke at a popular restaurant in Setapak, Kuala Lumpur. The senior citizens enjoyed their meal and were excited to join in the tossing of the auspicious dish "Yee Sang" for good health and prosperity. PPB staff were equally entertained by the senior citizens' jokes and were even serenaded with a witty poetic song by the oldest senior resident in the home.
On another occasion, PPB staff visited Kim Loo Ting Hong Ying Home where most of the residents are immobile. PPB treated them to a vegetarian lunch and gave away goodie bags containing chicken essence, towels, biscuits and a mini pillow.
Sri Jayanti Metta Care Centre was founded in 2004 and is a home for senior citizens managed by the Metta Home Committee. The Home currently has 17 senior citizens aged between 62 to 93 years and most of them are spinsters/bachelors without family support.

Kim Loo Ting Hong Ying Home is also a home for senior citizens abandoned by their families. Founded 15 years ago, the home has a total of 18 senior citizens aged between 60 to 80 years; most of them are bedridden and referred to the home by government hospitals.
