In-spite of battling with gastric cancer and bed-ridden, Mr. Abdul Rahman knows deep in his heart that the best gift for his beloved daughter is to be able to give his blessings to her on her wedding day. Our volunteers, Farhanah, Yves, Sanjay, Shankar from HPE and Kong Hoe quickly set the ball in motion to map out the logistics to fulfil his wish. On the day of the solemnization, we visited Mr. Rahman at his place of residence, bearing gifts of his favourite snacks and an AWS bear. This initial gesture set the tone for a day filled with love and memorable moments.
