Combat COVID-19

The pandemic due to COVID-19 has affected everyone. Probably none more so than those with special needs, isolated at home and running out of medical supplies and daily provisions, as well as young people facing increasing economic hardships. How can we simultaneously help both of these vulnerable groups?

The elderly and those with physical and mental disabilities or chronic illnesses have borne the brunt of the lockdown. Together with young people who have lost their jobs, seen their wages cut or asked to go on no pay leave, the consequences are indeed challenging.

We are therefore happy to say that since mid-May 2020, with the generous support of The Simon K. Y. Lee Karen's Fund, we have launched the Combat COVID-19 project. This project aims at connecting unemployed youth by serving the above underprivileged, while providing some allowance to ease their financial burdens in the short run.

So far, these young people have served over 6,000 households by delivering medical materials and household necessities, and they are expected to continue the service until October. Beneficiary referrals are made by partners including Community Care Age Foundation, 1 Step Association, Kwun Tong Methodist Social Service Agape Community Care Centre, New Life Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association The Wellness Centre, and People Service Centre.

This is one more example of our community working together. It is only when united and helping each other, that problems find solutions. We know that there are many more areas where we can work together. Come join us and show your care!
