Since 2010, HKUST students volunteered to lead and plan activities to serve senior citizens monthly in the Tseung Kwan O community. During the visit, volunteers organized fun activities to entertain the elders and also helped distributing traditional Chinese soups to the elders. From time to time, HKUST students have built a close relationship with the elders in the community.

Student Sharing:

這一次我們去超市買水果,陪長者玩遊戲,長者的臉上都浮現著燦爛的笑容,我們從心裡也有著滿滿的幸福感。大學生活中難得有這樣的機會讓我去接觸真正香港人的日常生活,而送湯水活動正好能讓我感受到。因此,我很喜歡這樣的活動,並願意繼續參與。

能夠與一班長者玩遊戲是一個非常難得的體驗。不少長者因為各種原因,甚少參與社區活動。希望透過舉辦同類活動,可以鼓勵更多長者接觸社區,與其他長者交流,活動一下身心。
