Out with the old, in with the new. This month marks the opening of 2023. In a brand new year, we are thrilled to see kind-hearted people continue to visit our centre, sending us donations and organising activities for our members. This piece reviews the major activities that happened at our centre in the past month.

ACTIVITIES AT A GLANCE 活動一覽
Sharing at School Assembly 學校早會分享
On 13 and 18 January, we have had the honour to be invited by the Man Kiu Association
Primary School and DSC International School to give a sharing during the assembly on the lived experience of refugees in Hong Kong and how we are helping them. These are important initiatives to raise awareness.
Celebrating Lunar New Year 慶祝農曆新年
On 13 January, volunteers visited our centre and taught our members to write ‘fai chun’ to celebrate Lunar New Year. Wishing all of you ‘dreams come true’ and ‘prosperity and wealth’ in the Year of Rabbit.
Knitting Workshop 針織工作坊
On 26 January, volunteers from our partner organisation, Grassroots Future, organised a knitting workshop for our members who are ladies. Ladies are grateful for this opportunity to learn with fun.
Pet Visit 寵物探訪
Our centre is pet-friendly. On 28 January, we welcomed a volunteer who brought her puppy Inky to our centre. Kids were overjoyed!
GIVING IS A BLESSING 施比受更有福
This month we received donations of wide-ranging useful items. We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to those who lend us a helping hand. Your support means a lot to us. We deliver all items we received to refugees.
