“Suppose that a community that was moderately equipped with a food market or a supermarket, a hospital, a school, a police station, and a church. Now you are asked to get rid of one of these institutions, which one would it be?”
Lorraine, one of our colleagues in China, posed this question to the participants during training programmes, and that one answer coincided among them was “the Church”.
‘CEDAR in China’ Sharing Gathering was held in KUC Space, Kowloon Union Church in the afternoon of 20 October 2012. CEDAR’s supporters, staff and new friends enjoyed a good time of fellowship and dialogue on CEDAR’s development work in China.
Participants got the general picture of our development programmes in different provinces in China.
We tasted the delicious snacks made from the organic vegetables from our Hubei organic farm.
Several of our current and former frontline programme officers shared their observations, experiences, thoughts, aspirations distilled from serving the impoverished communities in China.
Besides tasting the organic products, participants can also take some vegetables home.
Lively discussion after the presentations
We look forward to future opportunities to share our development works among the impoverished people with you and listen to your valuable feedback.
