Last weekend we have two community services :-
a) Dental Care visit to Santa Maria Elderly Home where PP Choi and IPP Kevin, our ‘honorary dentists’ did dental check-up and made impressions for denture for around 6 grannies there. . So warm to see them earnestly hoping for a set of new teeth for eating pleasure.
b) Visit Macau Down Syndrome Center where hobby class for floral arrangement was held for the bigger MDS bigger boys and girls. Again so heartwarming to see each of them so concentrated in making beautiful floral set, thanks to all of you who generously bought the GGG lucky draw tickets in support of this beneficiary’s training classes. I will update on the activities of Concordia School and Macau Autism Association later.
