Do my Best, Serve the Community
As at today, COVID-19 continues to spread around the world. Although the situation in Hong Kong has stabilised, we shall stay on guard and remain vigilant against the coronavirus. Apart from maintaining good personal hygiene, it is equally important to practise a healthy lifestyle by taking a balanced diet and exercising regularly in winning our fight against the pandemic.
In the past few months, the Association re-arranged the organisation of local and the participation in overseas Scout activities at appropriate junctures, with an aim to protect our members’ health. Despite the suspension of face-to-face gatherings due to constraints imposed by the government, our fellow Scout members explored many different ways to stay in touch with each other and keep learning through online platforms and virtual communication tools.
During the peak of the infection in Hong Kong, many of our members gave a vivid demonstration of the Scout Spirit of “To do my best to help other people” by providing support at the quarantine centre in Tso Kung Tam, distributing of epidemic prevention materials such as face masks and hand sanitizers to persons and families in need as well as spreading useful anti-epidemic information and positive messages. I am truly appreciative of the efforts that each one of you has made for the Scout Movement and your contribution to the community. You should be proud of the widely recognised “Hong Kong Scout –Health Guard” initiative jointly put together by various branches, regions and subsidiaries and the good examples that you have set for the youth.
While we are still under the shadow of the pandemic, I sincerely hope that all Scouters will continue to stay in touch with your Scout Group members and attend to their needs. I look forward very much to meeting you face-to-face and seeing your dear smiling face soon, when the coronavirus epidemic finally comes to an end.
