"Dear HoS MINDS has some amazing, dedicated heroes amongst their staff. Some provide care and love through their passions, like cooking – providing comfort in food. Krishnan Letshmi joined MINDS as its full-time cook in 1992. Her signature dishes include prawn noodles, yong tau foo and chicken rice. She has been preparing lunch, five days a week for the beneficiaries and staff of the centre for over 23 years. But it’s her caring soul that’s a pure pot of gold. “Every morning, I will go to Sheng Siong to see what is available and within our budget. Every week, we make sure they [the beneficiaries] get to eat eggs, fish, chicken, vegetables and tofu. At the end of the month, if we have enough money left over, I will do KFC-style fried chicken for them, only once. They really love it.” Beneficiaries attending the centre age between 18 to 50 years old. So caring for their health through what they eat is a priority. Mdm Letshmi said, “I use canola oil for cooking and serve tea without sugar. Also use pan salt, less salt because it’s healthier!” Candidly, she expresses her concern for each of the centre’s 66 beneficiaries’ health, “We take note of clients with weight problems, those who are overweight, we will make oats for them, lesser portion of rice. For those who are underweight, more rice, fish, vegetables. Give more milk.” Due to personal and domestic reasons, one such beneficiary was required to depart home earlier than the rest. When she found out, Mdm Letshmi expressed her concern that the beneficiary would not have sufficient dinner at home. She would serve him an advanced dinner portion, every day, before he leaves. “I love my job. I think of them as family when I cook for them. They have so little in life. They seldom go out [for leisure]. So what I can do is to try our best to give them good food to eat.” We hope you can feature her story, and showcase her amazing work at MINDS, and the work of many others behind the scenes to help all our patrons. Thank you! Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS)"
