On 22nd May 2016, a total of 15 FOCUS Adventure partners, 20 Chinese Development Assistance Council (CDAC) staff, 40 Bank of China (BOC) volunteers collaborated together to give 260 beneficiaries (from 2 years old to 76 years old) across 70 families, a day of fun and importantly, quality family time. This Family Bonding Day is part of FOCUS Adventure’s ongoing CSR efforts to strengthen family relationships through our experiential activities. For many of the families, it was their first time visiting Sentosa together. Through our customised incredible race, they experienced the essence of family bonds and cross family collaboration.
The event was graced by Miss Low Yen Ling, Parliamentary Secretary for the Ministry of Education Ministry of Trade and Industry. Miss Low joined in the families during the race as they participated together in the team challenges. It was very heartwarming to see the families constantly encouraging each other as they face certain difficulties during the challenges. In fact, the children were often the ones leading their parents in overcoming those challenges, and were a source of motivation for them. The ethos of family spirit was reflected and constantly built up throughout the whole programme, which resulted in stronger bonds for all families.
