In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, volunteers from the Gateway Apartments have found alternative ways to help those in need with their passion and resilience in the face of adversity.
They have sent a total of 105 hand-made scarves and goodie bags, containing surgical masks, hand sanitizer, vacuum bottles and snacks to Salvation Tai Army Po Centre and Wah Fu Centre for Senior Citizens. They were distributed to the elderly by the Salvation Army staff.
“In response to the Covid
-19 pandemic, elderly homes have introduced restrictions on visitors to minimize the risk of contracting and spreading of Covid
-19 to their residents,” said Ronald Loges, General Manager of Gateway Apartments.
“Nevertheless, we would like to show our care by sending the hand-knitted scarves to each elderly member to deliver positive energy to them during the current pandemic,” Loges added.
Gateway Apartments’ annual social initiative, “Knitting for the Elderly”, has been running for the past 10 years during the Christmas period to show their care for senior citizens.
