Festive Greetings with Care and Love

On 28 May, a group of volunteers from CUHK • Care Social Service Team went to visit elderly people living alone in Choi Wan and took them rice dumplings to celebrate the upcoming Dragon Boat Festival.

The visit is organized annually by Yang Memorial Methodist Social Service and it was the fourth year in a row that CUHK • Care has taken part in this social service. Over half a day, CUHK volunteers, wearing the Team’s signature bright yellow vest, paid visits to more than 100 elderly people in their homes to deliver the gifts and have warm a chat with them to understand their living condition.

Founded in 2013, CUHK • Care Service Team comprises students, staff, alumni and friends of CUHK. The team aims to bring together CUHK members’ time and capabilities to contribute to our society through the University’s benevolent, humanist culture. All are welcome to register as a member of CUHK • Care Service Team.
