Mohammad Nafiz is a happy man.
The 36-year-old first-aid trainer derives joy from helping others.
Over the past 4 years, his non-profit group, Happy People Helping People Foundation Singapore (HPHP), has helped spread joy to many less well-off elderly Singaporeans, particularly those who have to make ends meet by collecting discarded cardboards for sale.
HPHP now holds monthly “Happy Sunday” gatherings in Toa Payoh, Chinatown, Little India, Bedok and Geylang. Its volunteers spend time with the elderly, interacting with them and offering grocery vouchers to those in need. They also help pay forward the elderly residents’ meals by giving them a ‘Happy Friends Card’ which entitles them to a free meal a day at an economic rice stall.
To Mr Nafiz, having limited time and resources is no excuse for not stepping forward. Find out what moved him to pioneer a movement to touch lives in this video.
