IMPACT 0161: MATCHING UP WITH SENIOR BUDDIES
Lim Chen Xi, 23, is a volunteer under Project Buddy, a weekly phone-calling service for seniors living alone, which started during the 2020 circuit breaker period.
Well-versed in different dialects, she is able to communicate well with the seniors and empower them to try new things. Her engagement with beneficiaries also inspired her to come up with a step-by-step manual for seniors with different phone models to navigate Whatsapp.
