Proceeds will go to helping the sandwich-class elderly
Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home is catered for the sandwich-class elderly – those who do not qualify for government-funded homes but also cannot afford the more expensive profit-driven private homes with top priorities on affordability and personalized eldercare. It was started with the late Madam Lee in the mid-1960s. She wanted to open the doors of her Kampong Chong Pang residence to retired Samsui women and former Amahs, who wanted a trained nurse to help care for them during their twilight years.
