On August 24, 2012, Leo Club of Queensway – Project TIGERS 2012 Team 28 collaborated with Christian Action’s Mong Kok Service Centre’s new arrival children on a voluntary service.

New arrivals encounter difficulties integrating to Hong Kong society because of language problems and a lack of self-esteem. By serving visually impaired elderly, the new arrivals can boost their self-esteem by meeting local people and helping the needy. As well as this, interacting with the elderly allows them to improve their language skillset and creates a sense of belonging to local society.

To prepare for the visit, the Project TIGERS volunteers held a workshop on August 21 at Christian Action’s Mong Kok Service Centre. The new arrivals blindfolded themselves to experience blindness. The children found it hard not being able to see, which helped them understand the difficulties faced by visually impaired elderly.

That day, Team 28 and 13 new arrival children went there to visit the visually impaired elderly at Tung Wah Group of Hospitals Jockey Club Yee Yok Care and Attention Home in Aberdeen. During the visit, the children sang a few oldies with the elderly, and made Hui Chun (揮春) blessing in Braille as a sign of courtesy to the elderly. It was indeed a unique experience for everyone!
