Pioneering Dreams: Mr Lee Wong

Nov 21, 2022


89-year-old Mr Lee has been receiving monthly food hampers (Pantry Plenish and Bread Walk) and befriending services from Yong-en Care Centre (YCC) since 2016. Although he has been Yong-en’s beneficiary for over six years, it was only recently that we were invited to view treasured photographs which he had kept with him for 50 years! His life experiences were heavily documented through the black-and-white photos! Here’s a glimpse into the bygone era of Singapore in the 1970s through Mr Lee’s hidden gem – photos!

Mr Lee has also donated all his antique photos to YCC. Despite being a beneficiary himself, he also hopes that he can give back to the community through his artwork!
