During the Lunar New Year festive period, SMOU officials organised a string of heartwarming home visits to spread cheer to their senior members. As some of these senior members have mobility challenges, SMOU officials President Mr Rahim Jaffar, General Secretary Ms Mary Liew, Young SMOU (YSMOU) Chairman Mr Dominic Yong, Assistant Treasurer Mr Tan Geh Ting, Membership Committee Chairman Mr Tan Hung Tat, Secretary Mr Terence Tan, and Exco members Thani and Ismail visited their homes.

Armed with festive hampers, red packets and Lohei the home visits brought about a sense of joy and warmth to these long-time members. Senior members were always eager and looking forward to these home visits as they get to catch up and reminisce with union officials. The senior members were grateful to SMOU for this personal touch of arranging a home visit with them, and always asked when they would come back to visit again.

SMOU will always have a special place for members’ welfare and it was indeed a highlight for both senior SMOU members and union officials.
