In conjunction with the Lunar New Year, CAL organized a volunteer engagement activity on 30 January for our volunteers to come together to make traditional Chinese lanterns. 11 volunteers participated and all went home with their very own lanterns at the end of the session. The volunteers enjoyed the lantern making session, but most importantly, they appreciated the time together to catch-up with one another in a fun setting.
Yin Feng, one of our Volunteer Managers, shared: “Due to the current pandemic, we had limited our activities and interaction to Zoom. With the recent loosening guideline by the government, we are glad that we are able to start meeting in person. Thus, this lantern making activity was timely and a great start for us to kick-off the year’s activities.”
