11 July 2018 – Mr Quek, 78, spends close to two hours travelling to and from his home in Bedok to a dialysis centre in Serangoon about 13 times a month for his kidney dialysis treatment.

The wheelchair-bound senior, who is usually accompanied by a medical escort from Blossom Seeds Limited, takes the bus and train to the dialysis centre due to cost constraints and the fact that folding the wheelchair can be cumbersome if he takes the taxi.

Today, ComfortDelGro is making a $150,000 gift to three voluntary welfare organisations – Blossom Seeds, Dorcas Home Care Service and Thye Hua Kwan Moral Society – which will help seniors like Mr Quek.

The donation, which is being made in conjunction with the Group’s 15th Anniversary, will include a refurbished nine-seater bus and free trips for both seniors and their medical escorts.
