Keep in Touch with KNH
KNH would like to acknowledge the ongoing contribution, selflessness, courage and strength of our staff and volunteers. We have many people helping out behind the scenes, offering support, resources or information. Today, I would like to particularly mention the contribution of Sanae, Karen and Peter.
Not all heroes wear capes or play sport. Perhaps caring for others helps us care for ourselves.
