7 September 2011, Macao
With Mid-Autumn Festival just around the corner, some 20 CEM Ambassadors together with senior citizens from Centro de Dia Brilho da Vida, Caritas Macao participated in the Energizing Tour and held a party for them. CEM Ambassadors presented the elders with a fabulous programme and games for a pleasant afternoon.
CEM arranged a bus for more than 40 senior citizens to leave for Coloane Power Station. At the exhibition, the senior citizens acquired knowledge about CEM’s history and power generation process. They took the bus to visit around the power station, with the guide introducing about CEM’s stable power supply, environmental protection, and other aspects. The senior citizens also visited power generation facilities. The tour allowed senior citizens to experience green energy and raised their environmental protection awareness.
After the visit, senior citizens joined CEM Ambassadors team members to perform famous songs and play lantern riddle games for prizes, with senior citizens having a great time. Each time when someone answered a question correctly, they were rewarded with enthusiastic applause. The level of interest delighted everyone. The time spent with the seniors was merry and fun. At last, CEM Ambassadors presented mooncakes and souvenirs to the senior citizens, concluding the activity in joy and laughter.
Apart from CEM Ambassadors and CEM staff participating in the visit, CEM Executive Director João Travassos da Costa, CEM Executive Committee Advisor Iun Iok Meng, and CEM Communications and Public Affairs Senior Manager Cecilia Nip also took part in the event.
CEM has always put a lot of efforts to care for and serve the community, including offering the tariff discount for the senior citizens, organizing CEM Ambassador Team to provide voluntary social services for people in need, providing services for needy people in Macao and participating in community activities regularly, as well as visiting orphanages and senior centers during the festivals.
