Fun Days are outings and activities organised by the Jardine Ambassadors for clients of mental health organisations. Aside from giving the clients’ caregivers a break, Fun Days also aim to enhance the emotional well-being of the clients by giving them the opportunity to interact with the public and for the Jardine Ambassadors to gain a better understanding of the different challenges and needs of the clients.
