Further to the previous success of this service project, a group of HKUST students volunteered to lead and plan activities to serve senior citizens in the Tseung Kwan O community. During the monthly visit, not only did the volunteers continue the routine of distributing traditional Chinese soups to the elders, a variety of interactive activities were also organized to entertain the elderly, such as magic show, memory games and body-building exercise. Having fun with the elders each month, volunteers bring a smile to the elders’ faces and enjoy the precious moments chatting with each other.
