In June 2013, Sysmex Asia Pacific has organized a donation drive to collect funds for the Society for the Aged Sick and our staff had been generous with their money. The Society for the Aged Sick is a non-profit, charitable organization offering residential care for the destitute and aged sick.
Company’s donation and money donated from staff were used to purchase items required by the Home such as thermometers, blood pressure sets, stethoscopes, transfer belts, washing machine and dryer.
On 26 July 2013, all Sysmex staff took the afternoon off from work and befriended the elderly residents at this Home. We have the honor of Mr Frank Buescher, our President and CEO who gave the donation gifts to the Home. Throughout the afternoon, our staff interacted and helped the residents with the games /activities and treated them to a sumptuous dinner.
At the end of the day, every elderly resident received goodie bags and some with their lucky draw prizes. Their participation in joyful laughter and happy smiles during the games/activities (e.g. wheel of fortune, musical balloons and sing-a-long sessions) touched the hearts of our Sysmex’s staff. We were glad that our care and time spent with them have successfully impacted and filled the elderly residents with meaningful and enriching moments.
