Student Sharing:  

經過今次關深南昌上樓傳愛探訪服務後,我親身了解到低收入人士的居住環境是如此惡劣,可見香港貧富懸殊的問題非常嚴重。透過與他們的對話,發現他們仍然感到滿足。雖然生活條件不如他人,但亦會樂觀和積極地面對生活。完成今次活動,令我明白自己已是一個非常幸福的人,我會珍惜所擁有的一切。

We went to Sham Shui Po to visit the lower class as well as the South Asian. We went to where they live and tried to promote community care fund, which allows them to get several thousand dollars if the application is successful. It is an inspiring and eye-opening service that I understand there are a lot of people who need help in Hong Kong. I should treasure what I have now and after I graduate I should try to help the minorities in Hong Kong.
