招募義工-慈善探訪麥當勞叔叔之家的患病兒童 Recruitment of Volunteers - Charity visit to Ronald McDonald House (Saturday, November 14, 2009)
 

玫瑰崗舊生會在二零零九年十一月十四日往麥當勞叔叔之家作慈善探訪活動,為住在居處的患病兒童烹調了一頓愛心午餐。 

「麥當勞叔叔之家」是一個讓患病的小朋友和他們的家人暫時居住的地方。經醫護人員轉介入住後,病童的家人便可以享用各種家居設施,有像住在家裏的感覺。從「麥當勞叔叔之家」步行往威爾斯親王醫院只需要四分鐘。家長可以日夜在醫院陪伴子女之餘,還可以回來照顧自己及其他家人的日常生活。 由於地方有限,所以參與的人數只限為十六人。

當天一大清早,各人帶備各自負責的食材在指定地點集合後,大家一同前往位於沙田的麥當勞叔叔之家。甫抵達後,眾人隨即在麥當勞叔叔之家的廚房開始精心烹調各式各樣的美食。因為只得短短大約兩小時的準備時間,各參與會員均為需要在限時內為數十名人仕烹調出可口的食物感到既刺激又好玩;最後,在各人努力和互相幫助下,終於成功煮出十多款不同飯餸和甜點,眾人均對我們美味的愛心午餐讚不絕口

午飯後我們更安排了一位職業小丑為一眾患病的小朋友表演和跟他們玩遊戲,各小朋友均表現得玩得很開心。

最後,麥當勞叔叔之家的一眾職員和住客均對我們是次的到訪表示十分感謝,為他們安排了一個難忘的週末。活動後,各參與會員亦表示對參加了一次那麼有意義的活動感到高興,並表示會再次參加舊生會將來籌辦的慈善活動。 

On 14th November 2009, RHSOSA organized a charity visit to the Ronald McDonald House.

Ronald McDonald House serves as a “home-away-from-home” for families with a seriously-ill child being treated at area hospitals, and provides support to organizations that serve the needs of children.
 

The Houses offer parents and family members a respite from hospital waiting rooms 24 hours a day, 365 days per year.
 

The Houses are designed to bring the comforts of home to families far away from their own homes with a comfortable bed, a warm meal, kitchen and laundry facilities, and toys for the kids. Due to the limited space of the venue, we limited the maximum of participants to 16 only. On the material day all of the participants gathered together early in the morning with ingredients for their responsible dishes before they departed for Ronald McDonald House in Shatin. Everyone started to prepare their respective dishes as soon as they arrived since they were only given about 2 hours to prepare for the big lunch for over 50 people.

Although it was quite a big task to cook so many dishes under such a time constraint, with the help of each other, the group managed to produce over 10 different types of dishes as well as 4 types of desserts, which all received all praises for their professional quality and presentation.  A professional clown performance was also arranged after lunch for the residents there and everybody showed to be very pleased with the arrangement. Both the sick children and their families showed to be very grateful for our visit.

Our volunteers also indicated to have had an enjoyable and meaningful weekend and most of them said they looked forward to joining RHSOSA’s next charity activity too!
