On the 1st December 2019, 500 special needs children, families and Rotary members joined together to an evening of entertainment and fun when Santa came to join them at the Conrad Hotel Macau.
This 20th year “Joy to the World” theme was “Sea World” which the children performed in fancy dress, song and dance in front of their friends and family members while enjoying good food and companionship.
Thanks to Rotary Club of Macau, sponsors Sands Cotai Ltd and a Rotary District Grant we were able to entertain 500 children and family members and give them some Christmas cheer and happiness.
President Ip Pai Fai said, “..they have special needs but they also have special talent!”
Past President Fatima says that the families are often unable to celebrate together with their children in public, by organizing these events with others in a similar situation they are able to enjoy and celebrate in the community.
The smile on the children’s faces is enough to see that the event is very popular and successful. Thanks to support from Fuhong Society, Special Olympics and Parents Association for Mentally Handicapped.
This year we are pleased to see the event raised in the public awareness with coverage by our TDM news network and an article in the Macau press.
