Before Ride for Charity (RFC) embarks on its second journey, riders and volunteers paid a visit to one of the beneficiaries of this ride- Sunlove Abode for the Intellectually Infirmed. Sunlove Home played host to a group of about 30 volunteers from RFC and SIWEC on 19 September 2015. The abode is home to approximately 200 intellectually-disabled persons and provides, among other things, rehabilitation and psychotherapy for its residents. The home is also one of the beneficiaries for this year’s RFC. It was in an effort to understand firsthand the organization and persons who will be helped with the money raised that volunteers paid a visit to the home.

Mr Wee Lim, founder of the Sunlove, led the group on a highly informative tour of the home’s premises, explaining the various amenities and services provided for residents. This included a food hall where volunteers perform weekly and where RFC volunteers sang for and danced with the residents! Another beautiful part of the home was the ‘Harmony Activity Area’; a room for prayer and reflection. In this room, all major world religions are represented- sharing the same wall in the same space. It is in this room that the values of harmony, love and unity come to life. It is with those values that SIWEC serves the community, for service to humanity transcends barriers of race and religion.

Volunteers also spent time interacting with the residents and served them delicious food generously donated by Riverwalk Tandoor. The day ended with dancing- Punjabi style of course!

For volunteers, the experience at Sunlove Home was an educational one and a reminder that donating time, money and love goes a long way in helping individuals in need. SIWEC, as the other beneficiary of RFC 2016, greatly appreciates the hard work and tireless effort put in by every single volunteer to raise money for SIWEC and our services. The donations raised will indeed go a long way in helping us help the less fortunate. On behalf of SIWEC, thank you volunteers!
