YoungDAB volunteers carry out cleaning work for the elderly

2018.2.4

YoungDAB Volunteer Team is composed of members of the YoungDAB and serve districts with their skills. On top of visiting disadvantaged groups in society they also teach English to children from grassroots families and serve society in various ways.


As we got closer to the year-end clean up, YoungDAB volunteers carried out cleaning work for the elderly living alone or with another senior in Tin Shui Wai, Kwun Tong, Siu Sai Wan and Ho Man Tin. This year the Team formed 40 volunteers of young people and did the cleaning for over 60 elderly.


YoungDAB Chairperson Ngan Man-Yu said that elderly in the grassroots living alone find it hard to wash their own household products and do not have the financial ability to hire domestic helpers. But as the Lunar New Year approaches, they also hope to clean up their own homes. Therefore, the YoungDAB volunteers are using the holiday to clean the household products of these seniors. These young volunteers will also confabulate with and interact with the elderly they serve and thereby promote social harmony.
