Activities is held monthly includes my family tree supportive network, team buildings, outings, festival gatherings and specific trainings to enhance their communication skills, stress awareness and emotional support. Under the pandemic of COVID-19, strengthening their peer network is important. The group is further expanded by promotion and recruitment among the members.
