今天去了兩戶做Gate Painting. 發現這屋邨以獨居老人為多。我很高興能為老人家服務,看到原本殘舊的鐵閘變得閃令令,覺得很滿足。希望以後能再有機會服務老人家。

Today, we painted the gates for the elderly. My group mate is a girl whom I have met during Bread Run service. She is so nice and translated Cantonese to English for me during the whole event. We have fun in painting gates and the elderly are all friendly and appreciate our work. I feel happy of engaging in the community in Hong Kong. Hope to serve more with passionate volunteers in the future! Happy serving!
