The second Sponsor’s Function was successfully held in Sai Kung Po Leung Kuk Pak Tam Chung Holiday Camp on October 30, 2006. About 140 sponsors & friends and children of the Home enjoyed the day together.
Although it was a bit hot, most sponsors enjoyed the environment very much. They actively involved in the programme and appreciated the joyful time of playing games and barbeque. Children even forgot to eat as they devoted too much to play in the playground and catch shrimps and crabs at the nearby river.
“The idea of barbeque is nice. It provides a good platform for sponsors and children to communicate.” Dr. Au said. Dr. Au joined the “Lok-lok & Yiu-yiu” Sponsorship Scheme last year when he first knew about the Home and the Sponsorship Scheme through the house-drop leaflet. He came with his wife and son, whom he hoped to teach the message of “Giving is more blessed than receiving”, to extend love and concern to the children personally.
“The venue is good. The children are cute. The sponsors are willing to share with the children, too. And, workers of the Home are friendly and helpful.” said Mr. Yeung. With the passion of serving children, he has started being a volunteer of the Home since May 2006. His mission is “To help and support the children build up themselves”, so would be for many sponsors.
We are much thankful to the sponsors and volunteers. We appreciate all the support you have given to us. We hope to meet you again in the coming Sponsor Gathering.
