On 9 December 2017 and 13 January 2018, a group of alumni joined with other volunteers to visit the elderly in Sham Shui Po, showing their support during the chilly winter season. These meaningful community activities were organized by the Ho Kin District Community Centre for Senior Citizens and supported by CUHK Business School.  

Prior to the visits, Ms. Candy Cheung, the team leader of the centre, introduced the organization’s mission and activities and offered the volunteers a few tips on how to engage with senior citizens. They then went in groups with gift packs to visit the local elderly, who mostly live alone in public housing estates. 

The volunteers warmly greeted the senior citizens with festive blessings, presenting gift packs with soup, biscuits, calendars, and other necessities, as they listened to their life stories. The experience was inspiring for everyone and highlighted the challenges faced by senior citizens in need of help and care.  

Ms. Candy Cheung expressed her gratitude for the support given by alumni volunteers and hopes the Centre will continue to collaborate with CUHK Business School in future. The Alumni and Corporate Affairs Office would like to thank our fellow alumni for their selfless contribution to society, bringing joy and happiness to underprivileged people in need of love and care.

深水埗長者家訪 寒冬齊送暖
 

2017年12月9日及2018年1月13日,一群校友聯同其他義工到深水埗區探訪長者,在寒冬為他們送上溫馨暖意,以表支持。這些有意義的社區活動由可健耆英地區中心舉辦,中大商學院全力支持。

進行家訪前,該中心的社區網絡服務主管張明慧姑娘先向義工們介紹機構的使命和活動,並提供一些跟長者接觸相處的小貼士。然後,大伙兒分組行動,帶著禮物包出發探訪當區大多獨居於公共屋邨的長者。

義工們向長者噓寒問暖,為他們帶來節日祝福,並送上禮物包,內有湯包、餅乾、日曆和其他生活必需品。對大家來說,這次經驗發人心省,並突顯需要幫助和關心的長者所面對的問題。

張明慧姑娘感激校友義工的支持,並期望該中心今後繼續與中大商學院合作。校友及企業事務辦公室感謝校友對社會的無私奉獻,為需要關愛的基層人士帶來幸福快樂。
