Hubei Service Trip 2015-16

Zhang Chunli / Chinese Medicine / Year 2
In the trip to Wuhan, we visited and organised activities to promote health care messages in three elderly homes. Regardless of the background or resources the elderly had, their needs were the same: they wanted to be accompanied and cared by their relatives and friends.

Chin Jia Xin / BBA Accounting / Year 2
I did not have a concrete concept about “community service” since it is rarely discussed in Malaysia. After this trip, I was impressed. I have understood the meaning of “to serve”, and experienced the happiness of “to serve”.

Choi Ka Lok / Sociology / Year 3
This programme inspired me a lot. I learnt about the elderly related issues and reflected more about life and death. Chinese people avoid discussion about death because they think it is too negative. However, everyone will experience death. It made me think more about this topic and the need of preparing the elderly to round off their life journey.

The application of the programme in semester 1 was closed. Please pay attention to our facebook for more latest information.
