Reaching Out During the Dragon Boat Festival
The charity Run to Your Home helped elderly residents of Shamshuipo and Kowloon City celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival during two recent weekends. Teams of EMBA alumni and students, as well as their families, visited elderly people living alone, giving them gifts of fruit, rice dumplings and “sunny dolls,” which are said to bring beautiful weather. The volunteers also spent time talking with the elderly residents, providing a much-needed chance to socialise. Click here to share the happy memories.
