Date 23 & 30 April 2016
Location Sham Shui Po & Tai Po
No. of Volunteers Participated (Person-time) 31
No. of Service Recipients 20

This service project aimed at meeting the social needs of the visually impaired and helping them to integrate successfully into the community. In the two sessions of the service, volunteers showed their care for the visually impaired people through interactive games, soap making and outdoor activities. Service recipients and student volunteers both had a memorable experience together.

Student Sharing:  

This service for visually impaired people let me know that although they have some disabilities, they still have the courage and willingness to learn. The key element to communicate with them is to build trust and be patient. Hope I can have other chances to serve them in future.

參與「一視童行」這個活動令我體驗了與視障人士的相處之道。經過短暫的相處,我明白到視障人士其實和平常人一樣,能夠獨立生活,而我們亦不需要特別標籤他們。
