Student Sharing:  

It’s a great experience to be able to help the elderly to paint their home’s gate and can spend some time to talk to them. It’s good to know that although the lady that I visited today is already 70 years old and living alone, she is still very healthy and is enjoying her life very much. I will definitely visit my grandma more frequently, as she is also living alone, and hope she can live as happy as the lady I met today.

每次參與有關長者的義工活動,看到他們見到我們時由心而發的笑容以及開心地分享著他們的生活和經歷,我都感到正在做的事很有意義。除了透過參加義工去多關懷長者,我們更應從身邊做起。
