PHILIPSBURG:—- The St. Maarten Tzu Chi Foundation is encouraging persons desirous of volunteering for a worthy cause to join them on their once monthly visit to the St. Martin’s Home located in St. Johns Estate.
Tzu Chi volunteers visit the St. Martin’s Home the last Sunday of each month to help spread cheer to the elderly residents as well as to treat them to what the foundation refers to its “royal treatment” which includes gentle massages; changing the nail polishes of the ladies, combing their hair; simple exercises such as passing of balls, engaging in conversations with them, and to entertain them through, amongst other things, song, skits, and inspirational stories.
The visits are intended to pamper and give loving care to the seniors, many of whom look forward to the regular visits. Volunteers who are interested in the visits will get a chance to share in the joy of helping to pamper seniors, which many existing and past volunteers find very rewarding. The entire visit last for a duration of between one to two hours.
Visiting the St. Martin’s Home is a long standing and valuable tradition for the Tzu Chi Foundation, which has been visiting seniors at the home for more than a decade now.
In addition to the monthly visits, the foundation also holds a special programme at the home every year on New Years Day, in which volunteers entertains clients and presents gifts to every senior and staffer. A special cake is also cut and shared with all.
