Well-wishers send messages, gifts to former PM Lee Kuan Yew

SINGAPORE - Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has thanked the well-wishers who have sent their encouragement and support since his father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew, was admitted to hospital.

The elder Mr Lee was admitted to Singapore General Hospital on Feb 5 for severe pneumonia.

"On behalf of my father, I thank you all. My family and I are deeply touched by your encouragement, support and prayers," he wrote in a Facebook post on Friday.

He also posted a photo of the gifts that have been sent, which included get-well-soon cards, posters and art pieces.

There were messages and gifts from residents and grassroots leaders of Mr Lee's Tanjong Pagar GRC and other constituencies, students from PCF Sparkletots preschool and other schools, as well as the Ain Society, according to PM Lee's post.

PM Lee added that the cards had been arranged in his office to welcome Mr Lee back when he is better.

In a statement on Friday, the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) had said that Mr Lee Kuan Yew's condition remains largely unchanged since the previous update on March 6, which said that Mr Lee was in a stable condition and was still being monitored closely by his doctors.
