"因为她们的爱心,我得到了她们的关心,我也想把这份爱心传递下去,回馈社会帮助有需要帮助的人。"

我曾经得到过其他人对我的帮助,我还记得,当我的先生患上了癌症,我们一起经历了十五年的抗癌的治疗过程。这个抗癌的期间真很不容易。那在2010年我陷入到一个很困难的时期,我的先生的病情变得难以治疗,常常出入医院。幸好我得到我教会的一些义工来帮忙,我也得到我女儿的同事的帮忙。他们的帮忙很贴心,很感动我。他们是很有规律的几个人一起来,他们会四五个人一起来,他们会带我离开那个环境,几个人会留下来陪我的老公聊天,那么有几个姐妹会带我出去。出去喝茶,电头发,很贴心。因为她们的爱心,我得到了她们的关心,我也想把这份爱心传递下去,回馈社会帮助有需要帮助的人。我在2011年,我就开始做我的义工。

"I have felt the care and love of many people in my life, and they have been an invaluable source of comfort to me throughout my life. I too, want to pass on this love to other people in our society. To help those in need. "

Peck Wah isn’t a stranger to the effects of volunteering. Throughout her life, she has felt the warmth of various volunteers who have helped her and her family get through tough times, especially a long bout of illness that plagued her husband.

“I still remember when my husband contracted cancer. It was really hard on us. What followed was 15 years of cancer treatments. In 2010, my husband’s condition continued to worsen, and we would spend a lot of time at the hospital.”

While the period was tough on her and her family, Peck Wah says that the help and love given by others were a source of strength: “There were volunteers from my church, as well as some of my daughter’s colleagues, who were there for us.”

Peck Wah says: “They would come in groups of four or five people, and they would take me out of the hospital for a change of environment. While a group brought me out, a few other people who stay and keep my husband company.”

“These women,” Peck Wah calls them her “sisters”, “would bring me out for tea. They would bring me to the salon to make me pretty again.”

Peck Wah was moved by the kindness shown to her: “I have felt the care and love of many people in my life, and they have been an invaluable source of comfort to me throughout my life. I too, want to pass on this love to other people in our society. To help those in need.” She began volunteering herself in 2011.
