A winter blessing for Tuen Mun elderly

The elderly are treasured in Hong Kong culture, but, as people live longer, and may lack financial resource, life can be difficult. Depression, loneliness and isolation leave many feeling desperate. In fact, the group at highest risk of suicide in Hong Kong, as in many developed cities, is those over 65. We loved it, then, when Ma Ko Pan Memorial School asked us to help them with their annual winter outreach to elderly in their neighbourhood. They invited them to come for activities and friendship, and offered a ’boutique’ of beautiful, warm winter clothing from our warehouse. We’ve been partnering with Ma Ko Pan’s students for 8 years now, and are amazed at the ways they consistently care for the vulnerable in their neighbourhood.
