Ms Ling Ai
Since young, I have the passion in helping others especially the needy.  Probably it is in my mum’s genes.  My mother is actively involved in community work in Batu Pahat, Johore, Malaysia though she is over 70 years old.  She will visit the needy & assisting a Buddhist temple in cooking vegetarian foods on festive occasions for the public and needy as well.
As for me, I was invited in 2005 by Mr. Cheng to conduct a Mandarin health talk for Nam Hong Free Medical Centre’s patients.  I readily agreed as it is my honour to be able to contribute my part to the needy.  Since then, I am involved in organizing their quarterly Health Talks to their patients and the public.  Guess it is this affinity that brought me to Nam Hong Free Medical Centre.
