On the first day of Lunar New Year, ECON Healthcare Group (ECON) staff went to all nine of their nursing homes to give out oranges and red packets to residents. Accompanying the group were two Cai Shen Ye (Fortune Gods). Residents were overjoyed! This has been an ongoing tradition of ECON since its first home in 1987 as they believe in the importance of being family to residents.
