Reach Out and Touch Someone’s Life

Our pilot Volunteering Work kicks off smoothly this afternoon, with 5 great Volunteers and Bryan Laoshi.

They were there like a much needed friend, offering a pair of listening ears as well as providing a pair of healing hands to help knead away the residents’ tensed muscles & loneliness. They talked and joked with the residents and were much “tested” on their not so fluent dialects. Anyway, touch therapy is already an “international language”, the rest does not matter.

Along with the word 'volunteering' comes many ideas and images about what it means to be a volunteer. In reality, it means being a friend...someone to chase away the lonliness and make a person feel loved!

Thank you Mabel, May, Soo Fan, Teresa,Pam and not forgetting our great help "Miss CREAM"! If you want to know who is "Miss CREAM", join us in our next session scheduled on 5 July 2008 (Sat). We also welcome on-board new members Eleana, Kendra, Amy and Jessicca. Hope more students can join us for this meaningful activity. 加油 JIA YOU Everyone!
