On the afternoon of 8th February, the Society and Community Service Working Group of Stanley Ho East Asia College (SHEAC) organized a visit to Cradle of Hope, an institutional home for babies, children and youngsters without families. As the Lunar New Year was approaching, SHEAC students hoped to bring warmth and joy to the kids who had been abandoned or neglected.

Different colors of plasticine were molded into mini hamburgers, little houses and a warm home that the children desired to have. The kids also drew supermen, cute bunnies and New Year wishes with watercolor pens. Towards the end of the visit, the College students gave every kid a gift pack comprising a pencil, a pencil case and a pencil cap and a mini handbag bought earlier at Caritas Macau Sunshine Center with the fund raised from the Charity Show held last semester.

Playing and painting together, not only the children enjoyed a happy and warm afternoon in the cold winter, but also the SHEAC students received priceless joy from these little innocent angels. The children’s home was filled with love and happiness.

The “Cradle of Hope” Association provides residential homes for babies and children from 0 to 18 years old who have experienced the trauma of abandonment, abuse or neglect. By providing a safe, secure living environment, they hope that each child may heal and develop to become successful members of society.

書院同學們探訪希望之源兒童之家關愛被忽略的孩子

2月8日星期三下午,何鴻燊東亞書院學生會的社會及社區服務工作小組舉辦了探訪澳門希望之源協會兒童院舍活動。在新年來到之際,同學們希望給那些被拋棄及被忽略的孩子們帶來溫暖和歡樂。
同學們在院舍社工的介紹下了解了希望之源的宗旨以及與小朋友們交流時要注意的事項,之後大家都既興奮又緊張的與大概五至八歲的孩子們打招呼和開展活動。用橡皮泥捏出一份漢堡,捏出一所小房子,捏出一個心底最渴望的家;用水彩筆畫出超人,畫出小兔,畫出新年的願望。在探訪將近尾聲時,同學們為希望之源的孩子們送上較早前書院舉辦義演所籌得的善款在澳門明愛創明坊購買的鉛筆、筆套和迷你手提包等小禮物。

帶著孩子們畫畫、玩耍,大家給孩子們帶來溫暖,這群小天使也給同學們帶來了歡笑,讓希望之源這個兒童之家充滿愛與樂。

希望之源院舍為零到十八歲被遺棄或曾受精神創傷、虐待的嬰孩或兒童提供家庭式的院舍服務,能在一個安全及妥善的環境中成長,未來對社會作出貢獻。
