Amnesty International @ CDNIS bringing cheer and some “Light” to the elderly for Chinese New Year

By February 25, 2015CAS, GIN & Clubs

On February 6, 18 members of Amnesty International CDNIS visited the True Light Home for the Aged, an elderly home, as part of the focus on rights of the elderly. This visit was also a CAS project by Margaret Ho, an executive at Amnesty. Recognizing that many in elderly homes are often lonely and aren’t visited often by their family and friends, we wanted to celebrate an early Chinese New Year with them by playing some activities that were holiday-themed. As well, we allotted some time to have a chat with them, and also prepared some gift packages with towels and cakes. It was truly a great experience – we were able to get to know them personally and have them share exciting stories of their earlier years. This elderly home visit went very smoothly, and we hope to plan another one very soon!
