Caring for Others

NTU Taekwondo Club under the leadership of Mr Victor Ho, its 25th President, visited Assisi Hospice on Friday 17 May 2013 on Upper Thomson Road to bring joy to the participants who were suffering from terminal illness.

The group spent about 2 hours at the Hospice entertaining them with a taekwondo demonstration and some games like ‘guess the song’, ‘drawing competition’ and ‘bingo’.

Said Victor: “One of the things that really touched me is that, despite their illness, the patients displayed enthusiasm in participating in the activities. I was impressed with their creativity displayed by them during the ‘drawing competition’.”

He added: “Most importantly, I learned from Ms Yu, the Senior Volunteer Programme Executive, that the patients would be happy to see volunteers coming to visit them and organizing activities for them.

Members of the NTU Taekwondo Club has shown to that taekwondo is indeed a powerful tool which can be harnessed for the good of our society.

The Singapore Taekwondo Federation looks forward to seeing more members living up to the true spirit of taekwondo.
