"We often think one little positive action doesn't count for much, but the ripple effect of lots of little actions has a huge impact on the health and wellbeing of countless lives."
“The visitor was unexpected, but his kindness wasn’t.”
Several years ago, Wee Keng Kin Jacqueline suffered a bad fall. The painful sprain to her ankle took her by surprise – but not as much as the knock at her door that followed.
Standing on her doorstep was the young son of one of her long-term clients, there to fetch Jacqueline to his mum’s place so she could be bandaged and looked after. “The visitor was unexpected,” Jacqueline says. “But his kindness wasn’t.”
After 25 years of caring deeply for the health and wellness of her clients, Jacqueline has seen first-hand how care gets passed on. It journeys through communities, across generations, and even occasionally, back to her.
“We often think one little positive action doesn’t count for much,” she says. “But the ripple effect of lots of little actions has a huge impact on the health and wellbeing of countless lives.”
