Quotes by WZQers
"In that village far away, in the green grassland, we built a bridge with the villagers. When we worked hand-in-hand, I realised how simple the relationship between us was. It was as if there would be no conflict in the little village......I truly found happiness there. Helping people is very fulfilling because you do not calculate how much you give."
- Mr Lui Kwan Ho (The Hong Kong Polytechnic University)

"I was overwhelmed by the Wu Zhi Qiao in this 8-day trip. It improved the village's living environment. It connected us. It founded our friendships. It aroused our sense of unity. It gave the volunteers precious memories. I find the trip unforgettable and this is the best reward for me."
- Mr Lam Wai Ming (The Hong Kong Polytechnic University)

"Everyone did their best to build the bridge to help the people. All of us were very responsible and never complained. It is such a wonderful thing that even though we had a different background, we still managed to cooperate smoothly with each other. I gave all I had to help to improve the environment in the village because the hospitality of the villagers motivated me to keep working. This very joyous trip was totally worth it."
- Mr Matthew Lee (WZQ Volunteer)
