Initiated by PSL (Public Service Leader), the project aimed to build a community network for residents in Jordan to get to know their neighbors. Volunteers knocked at the doors of residents in old buildings and chatted with them. Volunteers learned more about people from different communities.

I was impressed by the situation and residents visited in Jordan. Although they may be living in a poor condition, they are actually feeling happy and glad in living in Hong Kong. They are very friendly, especially for the ethnic minority. They are even willing to share their daily lives with us and invite us to their house.

這次的經驗令我對巴基斯坦的新來港人士改觀,他們大多都非常友善,有部分更精通廣東話。在探坊他們時大多都面帶笑容,令人感到溫暖。
