“As I was delivering the hygiene kits, there was another organisation delivering a full truck of rice. As I felt like I am belittled by the amount we were giving as compared to a full truck of rice, I had to remind myself that this is not a competition. A small help is as equally appreciated as a big help. That's what everyone should do! Don’t think what you are giving is not making an impact.”said Lu Yian, SERUM’s community builder.

“I feel very empowered and inspired to see how the differently abled community is thriving. Every person I've engaged with is visually impaired and they were very warm and welcoming. They even took the chance to show me around the MAB complex. Glad to know that they’d been given an opportunity to lead and guide here,”said Harsani.
