A DAY AS A WH VOLUNTEER
Mdm Choo started volunteering at Willing Hearts since the inception. Since then, she has been actively involved in the operations of free meals distribution in various locations.
Being a Buddhist herself, Mdm Choo initially felt uncomfortable as Willing Hearts is a Christian-initiated program, however, after meeting fellow volunteer, Patrick, during her first few weeks of volunteerism, she was able to bridge the gap of religion as Patrick told her – ultimately, we are serving the same God by serving others.
Since then, Mdm Choo gave her commitment to serving others at the void deck of a block of flat in Hougang. She was serving there for some years before the location was changed. And about 3 years ago, she moved to volunteering at the Church of St. Steven in Aljunied area. Mdm Choo’s day starts at 7.30am at the church – preparing for the distribution in the late morning. She would prepare big portions of rice to be distributed together with other food.
Her day ends at 2.30pm after cleaning up the kitchen and distribution counter.
