"Some of these students are the best English-speaking students in the school and some other ones were invited because they’re pretty decent at English to but maybe not the best speakers,” English Teacher, John Carmey said. “It’s real good for these kids to have this interaction because they get almost zero exposure to English in Hong Kong. They might see it on TV but they just read the Chinese subtitles. Even their English listening class is a very unnatural computer voice. They learn a very stilted sounding English and they think that its normal. Exposure like this with one American talking to one student is good for them and they see that is not the way people really speak

Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is a neuromuscular disease characterized by degeneration of motor neurons, resulting in progressive muscular atrophy (wasting away) and weakness. The features of SMA are strongly related to its severity and age of onset. SMA caused by mutation of the SMN gene has a wide range, from infancy to adult, fatal to trivial, with different affected individuals manifesting every shade of impairment between these two extremes.

     

 脊髓性肌肉萎縮症(spinal muscular atophy, 簡稱SMA) 屬於體染色體隱性遺傳疾病,是因脊髓的前角運動神經元漸進性退化,造成肌肉逐漸軟弱無力、萎縮的一種疾病,但智力完全正常。其肌肉萎縮呈對稱性、下肢較上肢嚴重且身體近端較遠端易受影響。此病發病年齡從出生到成年皆有可能發生。

  The NAVY volunteers spent over 1 hour on this section with the low-income teenagers of this community.

 

    

 

「耀陽行動」第一個活動是在「鄰舍輔導會茶果嶺中心」舉行。住在該區一群熱心公益的青少年,在這個驕陽似火的下午,齊集中心內,興奮地等待這些海軍的來臨。他們首先有個多小時與美軍交談,練習說英語。美軍非常友善和藹,年青人毫無懼色,話匣子一下便打開了,說個不休。美軍有問必答,包括私人問題,引得雙方大笑!

 

然後每一隊帶著福袋,由青少年引領,探望住在該區的長者。「耀陽」義工擔任翻譯,使老人家與大兵哥也可以交談。一些長者甚至邀請探訪者留下吃晚飯呢。

 

 

 

Visiting the Homeless & Street Sleepers Shelter in Sham Shui Po

 

晚上另一批海軍跟隨「耀陽」負責人帶著福袋探望深水埗區的露宿者。福袋除了食物,還包含一些衛生日用品。在「香港露宿救濟會」的帶領下,低調地送出捐贈者一點點心意。

Bringing dinner boxes, including beverage and fresh fruit, plus some cloths and hygene products.

 一些公公婆婆們在電視的新聞也得知「列根號」訪港,可沒有想過這些男女海軍會在自己的家中出現。他們笑咪咪地連聲道謝,也對海軍們已離家7個月表示同情。道別時「拜拜」不斷,依依不捨。

這次經「耀陽」安排的活動,海軍探訪了約200名長者及露宿者。他們表示,船上報名做社區服務的人非常踴躍,不但在香港,在其他地方也有參與,與一般人印象中上岸後只管玩樂的形象相去甚遠

他們十分感激「耀陽」為他們安排的所有活動,讓他們有機會接觸到本地較基層的市民,從另一角度看這個繁榮的都市,並畧盡棉力送上溫暖,叫他們留下深刻印象。
