On 13th May 2017, our volunteer team joined Caritas Cheng Shing Fung Sham Shui Po Elderly Centre (明愛鄭承峰長者社區中心 – 深水埗) to visit elderly who live alone in Lei Cheng Uk Estate. Our volunteers were separated into 2 people per team. Each team visited elderly place by place. We distributed rice dumplings and small gifts to them. During the morning, the elderly chatted with us, they shared stories of their daily life, their children and grandchildren. The elderly and our volunteers were very happy and cherish the time together.
Through this volunteer work, our volunteers understood more about what elderly’s need and the change of the society in Hong Kong over the past 60 years in different perspectives. This experience was very valuable especially to some of our volunteers who were born in the 80s and 90s.
