I have experienced the tortures of illness, just like the campers have. I knew that each child being supported by LRS did not have an easy life. We all cherish the support.
In early August 2016, I received a special invitation from the Little Red Scarf teachers to join them for the summer camp. I was anxious at first, since I would be a volunteer this time. I needed to share something with the participants. Of course, I tried my best to prepare.
Throughout the course of the camp, we all experienced a progression from unfamiliar to familiar, and from shyness to openness. Each participant learned on different levels, and they left a deep impression on me. I have experienced the tortures of illness, just like they have. I knew that each child being supported by LRS did not have an easy life. We all cherish the support.
The purpose of the camp was to care for each child’s development, not just his/her health. Each day, our teachers took care of each child. With interesting games, the participants’ capacities were improved. For example, hiking the mountain helped people be more tolerant. The children won over the teachers.
What impressed me most is the work done by the four teachers. I admire their aptitude for work, which inspires me for my future work and studies. I will study harder and try my best to help people.
