Student Sharing:    

I am happy that the children and their parents enjoy this outing. Although they are more active than I expected and we need to chase after them throughout the outing, I still enjoy myself chatting with the children and their parents. Also, during the outing, parents take their opportunities to ask us about university life. They are concerned about their children’s future, especially when underprivileged children usually have fewer opportunities. Hopefully, we can help them through similar services in the future.

第一次做小朋友服務,剛開始時覺得很辛苦,因為小朋友太活躍,但第二次活動時,就感受到小朋友的純真和熱情,他們願意無私分享食物或玩具。我被他們的真心打動,並與他們建立了深厚的信任和了解,這是今次活動最大的收獲。
