In recently years, the Macau community has raised the concerns for the livelihood of the vulnerable groups._ It is hoped that the seniors can enjoy their lives in full; children confined in special wards can grow up in good health; the mentally deficient people and single families would receive adequate care and love._ Macau Red Cross, embracing the spirits of Red Cross principle and humanitarian, has established a Community Volunteer Group with the aim of providing care and warmth to these vulnerable citizens.
