Service for the elderly with friends from Father Tapella Home

Cosmos volunteer team joined hands with the friends from Father Tapella Home of Fu Hong Society to visit over 30 elderly in Tsuen Wan Cambridge Nursing Home on 15 November 2008. This visit was a very meaningful one as Cosmos volunteer team assisted the friends from Father Tapella Home of Fu Hong Society to provide service for the elderly in order to achieve the two parties' common objectives of giving back to the society and helping the people in need.

In the nursing home, Cosmos volunteer team helped the friends from Father Tapella Home settle down and expressed their warm greetings to the elderly. They formed themselves into three groups and made cookies together with the friends from Father Tapella Home. Some elderly were also invited to participate. With the help of volunteer team, the friends from Father Tapella Home brewed different kinds of floral tea and took turns to perform magic and sing for the elderly.

During the tea-time, the elderly, the friends from Father Tapella Home and volunteer team members had a chat and shared the freshly-made cookies and cups of warm tea. At the end of the visit, the friends from Father Tapella Home sent each volunteer team member an elaborate beaded souvenir hand-made by them. Our volunteer team members were deeply moved by their thoughtfulness.
