Distributing food to 500 beneficiaries at Yaumatei and Tokwawan from 5:45 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. with 16 Rotarians and 22 volunteers
The Joint Community Service Project was jointly hosted by our club with Rotary E-Club of District 3450, RC of Kowloon Tong, RC of Manhattan Hong Kong, RC of Greater Bay Area and co-organized with Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate with lots of volunteers serving the beneficiaries together on 16 July 2021 from 18:00 to 21:30 at two dominated locations. It was a two days event and Rotarians had spent more than 3 hours to pack all items in church on 15 July, 2021 for 500 beneficiaries. We served 500 beneficiaries who lived in the street, single elderly and those who came from unemployed & low income families. They located at Yaumati & Tokwawan area. We distributed dinner box, bottle of water, fruit, and lucky bags which contained sanitary items such as masks and hand sanitizers, food such as noodles, biscuits, sardines, baked beans, preserved fruits together with ointment and Rotary towels during COVID-19 pandemic. This could release them a bit during this challenging time.
We were at the Yaumatei site ready to distribute the sanitary items and food to the 500 beneficiaries.
