Singapore Red Cross Chapter have organised a inter-tertiary camp titled:Project Humanite. This camp seeks to raise awareness among youths about urban poverty and what we can do about it.First day of the camp was really fun,as we had ice breaking sessions to get to know each other better, before heading off for water games. The games are both interesting and interactive,as we need to think of strategies to throw the water bomb across the net with plastic bag. We can’t use our hands to throw the water bomb directly, but can only use the bag to try to flick it over and hit the floor before the opposite team catches it. After that games, we proceeded to have our lunch as NUS foodcourt before preparing ourselves to go to sentosa for another round of fun!
We played amazing race when we were there, a clue of a location would be given to us and we need to solve it to reach the place and to do the required activity before we were given another clue to our next location. However, when we were there, it began to rain pretty heavily.Thus, we sat down to rest awhile first before playing some indoor games among the campers. After the clouds cleared, we began to dash to those locations that we were supposed to be at and clear all the activities. After a day of fun at sentosa, we had our dinner at Harbourfront before heading back to NUS for our debrief for the next day.
We did feeding program on the second day of the camp. My group went to Toa Payoh Icare to deliver lunch for people living in whampoa, Boon keng and areas around there. It was really mind opening for us to know that there are people who are living in poverty even in Singapore, one of the richest nation in Asia. After delivering food for the old folks, we went to Marina Barrage to fly kites which signifies the taking off of our dreams that we have. Dreams that we’ll wanna accomplish for old folks living in difficulties.After a hot afternoon spent at Marina barrage, we made our way back to NUS for a scenario game. The game was quite fun and it allowed us to learn how to do first aid when we don’t have our conventional first aid items (E.g triangular bandage, roller bandage).
To conclude, it was really awesome to go for this camp as it allow me to have so much fun,meeting with other friends I have in other chapters, to meet new friends as well.Hope to see more people going for camps like this in the future!
