Teenagers learn to show appreciation on Mother’s Day
Teaching children to demonstrate appreciation is important, especially to parents who nurture and care for them selflessly. To help these children express their thanks to their parents, our Flying Young volunteers organized classes for these children so that they could learn how to make something to treat their parents. These little hand-made gifts were not necessarily expensive, but their sentimental value made them priceless. Allowing the parents to take a break, Desiree Jebsen, Hospitaller of Order of Malta Hong Kong, invited a Nutritionist, Diana Chan, to lead a talk on the topic of Healthy Eating Diet, to the parents. While the children were occupied in the classes, the parents could take a break listening to Ms. Diana Chan’s informational talk.
Our volunteers also arranged a cooking class and photo-frame making class for the children. Anna Stillfried, Flying Young Committee member, was responsible for teaching the children how to make a healthy version of “Energy Balls”. Anna said, “it’s important to teach the children to make something that they can replicate at home. This is why we taught the children this simple recipe which does not require oven or blender and yet using healthy ingredients.”
We had a total of 15 volunteers join and help the 15 children and teenagers in the activities.
