On 15 September, the BBA Alumni Association of CUHK lent its support to a charity event organised by the Ho Kin District Community Centre for Senior Citizens. Over 20 alumni, their family members and friends took time out of their weekend to visit senior citizens in Sham Shui Po.  

Ahead of the visit, a representative from the Centre introduced the organisation’s mission and activities, and shared tips on visiting the elderly. The briefing session provided volunteers with an understanding of the kinds of challenges faced by elderly people living alone. 

When it came time for the visit, our alumni brought along bags of gifts including thermal bottles and daily necessities as well as festive mooncakes, making this Mid-Autumn Festival filled with love and warmth for the elderly. Each alumni volunteer received a limited-edition CUHK Business School T-shirt as a token of the School’s appreciation for their act of kindness to society.  

“We usually gather with friends and family over Mid-Autumn Festival, and it is easy to forget that a group of senior citizens may be celebrating the festival alone,” said Mr. Raymond Lo, President of the BBA Alumni Association. “Just one simple act of caring at this special time can make their day, setting off ripples of positivity through society.”

中秋傳愛顯關懷
 

9月15日,中大商學院本科生校友會共襄善舉,參與由可健耆英地區中心舉辦的慈善活動,超過20名校友聯同家人和朋友在周末前往探望深水埗區的長者。

進行家訪前,該中心一名代表先簡介其機構的使命和活動,並分享探訪長者的心得。簡報會讓校友義工了解到獨居長者所面臨的各種挑戰。

到了家訪的時候,校友們帶同禮物包,內有保溫瓶、日用品和應節月餅,為長者帶來充滿愛心和溫暖的中秋佳節。每位校友義工獲贈中大商學院限量版T裇一件,以示母校讚賞他們身體力行地關愛社會。

中大商學院本科生校友會會長盧偉成先生表示:「我們通常會跟朋友和家人一起度過中秋,很容易忘記一群長者或許只能獨自慶祝這個節日。只要在這個特別的時刻向長者聊表關懷,便可讓他們樂上半天,並在社會上引發正面的漣漪效應。」
