Student Sharing:  

有些獨居長者原來連喝一碗湯也有困難,對他們來說已經是負擔,更何況是煲湯。當我們探訪長者時,他們跟我們聊了很多事情,更和我們談過去的歷史,大家也樂在其中。這次的探訪讓我了解到自己已經很幸福,更感到自己責任重大,要努力幫助有需要的人。

I have a chance to prepare soup and visit the elderly in this service. What I like most is the part of visiting as we can reach and talk to some elder people directly. They are all so nice to us and welcome us. While they may not obtain a high quality of life, they are all optimistic and thankful to the helps given by the society. They also share their lives with us and I realize how lucky we are, living in a society as affluent as HK. One of them tells me to stay strong despite any difficulties. I am touched and think that we should pay more attention to our seniors of the society.
