On the day of visit, volunteers from the Malaysian Physical Therapy Association visited the Amitabha Caring Shelter (KL) and, through casual chatting, established mutual trust with the elderly there. The exchanges, followed by simple and easy stretching exercises led by the physiotherapists, also helped the latter learn about them. Such simple exercises are not to be sold short. They serve to help the elderly maintain their flexibility and promote blood circulation. At the end of the event, sharing their experiences in volunteering so far, several volunteers unanimously agree that they feel the happiness, blessing, and growth in themselves every time. There is more to volunteer work than helping others – one also builds up one’s experience and trains one’s mind. May the volunteers’ spirit of service will continue to be carried forward and passed down.
