It is nearing the end of the one-week school holidays in September and we took this opportunity to participate in a tree-top obstacle course at Forest Adventure with the children from Xin Yuan Community Care (“Xin Yuan”). We learnt that this is the first time for most of the children but saw that they took on the challenging course with ease.
Xin Yuan provides financial assistance, health and educational support to elderly and children from low-income families and aims to be the choice family care provider. We are indeed fortunate to have the children from Xin Yuan to join us in the Forest Adventure. We are also thankful to Kristin and her colleague from Xin Yuan to assist in the supervision of the children as without them, this event will not be possible.
Before embarking on the course, everyone has to go through a safety briefing conducted by the instructors.
However daunting the challenge ahead, the children overcame and conquered their fears.
Following the completion of the Forest Adventure, we proceeded to Macdonald (@East Coast) for a well-deserved lunch. It was a truly rewarding experience that we hope has helped the children build confidence and a sense of accomplishment!
