Urgent Appeal

To all SAS Muar Old Boys,
I am sending out an urgent appeal to anyone who can help me.
My 91-year old mother who lives in Muar recently underwent a colon operation and I need to hire a full time maid / helper to help look after her. She’s not bedridden but due to her arthiritis she cannot walk very far, still able to move about but need some assistance. She’s having a colonstomy bag attached to her that need’s regular changing so I’m looking for someone who’s willing to provide some simple basic nursing care.
At the moment, my younger sister lives with her but she herself is suffering from depression so she’s not able to fully care for my mother. This maid / helper can be either local or foreigner, I prefer live in full time, and I’m willing to pay whatever is necessary, however, as a temporary measure I don’t mind if we can get a day time maid.
I sincerely hope anyone of our old boys either in Muar or elsewhere who happen to know somebody who’s able to provide their services as a maid. I would greatly appreciate all the help I can get to help me solve this problem.
Thank you.
Best regards
Vincent Ngc/o Kim Realty

Other work Founder of the international Scouting Movement;
Robert Stephenson Smyth Baden-Powell, 1st Baron Baden-Powell, OM, GCMG, GCVO, KCB (pronounced /beɪdən poʊ.əl/) (22 February 1857 – 8 January 1941), also known as B-P or Lord Baden-Powell, was a lieutenant-general in the British Army, writer, and founder of the Scout Movement.

After having been educated at Charterhouse School, Baden-Powell served in the British Army from 1876 until 1910 in India and Africa. In 1899, during the Second Boer War in South Africa, Baden-Powell successfully defended the town in the Siege of Mafeking. Several of his military books, written for military reconnaissance and scout training in his African years, were also read by boys. Based on those earlier books, he wrote Scouting for Boys, published in 1908 by Pearson, for youth readership. During writing, he tested his ideas through a camping trip on Brownsea Island with the local Boys’ Brigade and sons of his friends that began on 1 August 1907, which is now seen as the beginning of Scouting.
After his marriage to Olave St Clair Soames, Baden-Powell, his sister Agnes Baden-Powell and notably his wife actively gave guidance to the Scouting Movement and the Girl Guides Movement.
Baden-Powell lived his last years in Nyeri, Kenya, where he died and was buried in 1941.
