Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat. We must find each other. By Mother Theresa

I realised the significant of the above quote when I visited the home today.

Saturday is the day when the elderly look forwards to the volunteers' visit. Some even note down the number of weeks that the volunteer didn't visit. Why volunteer? It is to spend a few hours of our weekend to bring some joy and love to the elderly. To show that there are people who care for them. To let them know that they are not forgotten by the society.
