Mrs Wong SC, caregiver
“It’s indeed an encouraging opening speech by Prof Christopher Cheng at SKH today. Followed by Shamala’s dance routine movements which were so cool !! The stroke survivors were so absorbed in their painting on the pebbles. Thanks to Poh Choo and all the dedicated volunteers for making such a fun day for all stroke survivors n caregivers 💐👏👏”

Pua Kia Fong, stroke survivor
“It's a great workout, with the motivational speech by Prof Cheng. Thanks for the arrangement. Of course without the help from the volunteer therapists this could not have happened. Big Thanks to SNSA and the support team from SKH.”

Patrick Heng, stroke survivor
“This morning's event I can't comment much cos I missed the opening speeches, came into the room 'blur'.
The workout led by Shamala & Khim was fabulous. Dance steps with music is really terrific. The Stroke Survivors welcomed the varied dance steps led the soulful Shamala and everyone soon forgot their "handicap". I thoroughly enjoyed the workout.
Stone painting ~it's a therapeutic transgression of thought into art.
All were very engrossed with their piccasso on pebble.”
