Tzu Chi volunteers pamper St. Martin’s Home clientsPOSTED: 10/2/15 12:24 PM
St. Maarten – Seven Tzu Chi Foundation volunteers took time out of their weekend schedules to pamper St. Martin’s Home clients during their regular monthly visit last Sunday.
The volunteers visited the home from around 4.30 p.m. and remained there until 6 p.m. pampering clients.
The volunteers spent quality time engaging in conversations, and did mild relaxing exercises in an effort to help keep clients moving and active.
A number of clients also received a nice “royal treatment” from volunteers which included hand, back and foot massages and polishing of their nails.
Volunteers also visited patients who were in their rooms to see how they were doing, to share a kind word of encouragement with them and to engage in conversations with them.
Tzu Chi volunteers try to visit the St. Martin’s Home the last Sunday of every month. Because of their regular visits, many of the clients are familiar with the volunteers and look forward to their regular visits.
Tzu Chi Commissioner Sandra Cheung thanked all the volunteers who sacrificed part of their weekend for the elderly. She also thanked the St. Martin’s Home and its clients for accommodating the foundation’s volunteers and said Tzu Chi is grateful for the opportunity to serve them.
