"It is the least that we can do to bring some joy to the residents in the nursing home. Through the activities, we can give them variety in their routine and encourage them to have a little bit of fun."

Another 'hardcore' Team Nila volunteer, Victor Ng, started his volunteering journey when Singapore hosted the inaugural 2010 Youth Olympic Games.

Victor, 61 years old, loves Singapore very much and counts it a privilege to give back as he has benefitted greatly from society. 

He recalled one of the biggest challenges he had was to assist in recruiting 25 volunteers within 2 days for a major sporting event. He also had to prepare them and that included hand-delivering the volunteer attire to each before the event. Victor's leadership style enabled him to effectively perform the role of caring for the SEAG dignitaries. He had to work long hours, be flexible and agile in meeting the requests and requirements from Singapore's VIP guests. 

For the past years, Victor has been focusing on the elderly. He initiated a project in 2017 to encourage Team Nila volunteers to visit and engage the residents at Ren Ci @ Ang Mo Kio (Nursing home) through sport. He believes that, "Sport does not have to be competitive, it can simply be moderate physical activities that keep us active and healthy. 

"It is the least we can do to bring some joy to the residents in the nursing home. Through the activities, we can give them variety in their routine and encourage them to have a little bit of fun," said Victor. 

Apart from the table tennis games, these sessions also included basic therapeutic massage sessions for residents at the hospital.
