Since her first visit to @hca_hongchi Hong Chi Association preschool centre to volunteer with the kids there two years ago, Evelyn Tengco Anonuevo from QI’s Hong Kong office makes it a point to go back every year.
The centre caters for younger children with physical and mental disabilities who were abandoned or left there by parents who could not care for them.
“Being a mother, my heart goes out to the children who were abandoned by their parents. The children happily chatted away with the volunteers when they saw us,” she says.
“I was assigned to take a girl out for a walk and she started laughing the moment we stepped out. Hearing her laughter, I told myself, I must keep coming back,” she says.
