After the activity, Team member Yang Haozhi said, “As a new member of the team, ‘Caritas Macau Charity Bazaar’ was a good opportunity for me to get in touch with Macao society. We introduced the booth games to passers-by in front of the booth. After listening to our introduction, many parents got interested in and would like to have a try with their children, which also enhanced our confidence in communicating with others. I also enjoyed guiding children to play, their naive and adorabe behaviors always made me feel warm and cannot help speaking softly and patiently. I was moved by the warmth of the Social Service Team when contributing my strength to society with other team members as well”
