On 14 September 2018, CDL Group General Manager Mr Chia Ngiang Hong led 51 volunteers from CSC in a visit to Assisi Hospice, bringing joy and warmth to the patients of its Home Care and Day Care Centre during the Mid-Autumn season.
CSC volunteers decorated the hall with paper lanterns and colourful streamers, imbuing it with the festive mood. After setting up the event hall, CSC volunteers were hands-on guiding patients step by step to make their very own snowskin mooncakes.
Besides distributing mooncakes and lanterns, a series of performances was also lined up that evening to entertain the patients and their families. A few of the CSC volunteers belted out familiar tunes and towards the end of the celebration, CSC volunteers accompanied patients for a stroll around the courtyard and were wowed by the unique radio-controlled kite flying performance where colourful LED lights were added to “string-less” kites.
Every year since 2008, CSC has been celebrating the Mid-Autumn festival with Assisi Hospice’s day-care and in-ward patients.
