Hong Kong drug addicts rehabilitated

NGO St Stephen’s Society has, for decades, brought people with drug dependency back into fulfilling lives. They begin with the immediate withdrawal and then move to ‘half way homes’, apartments all over Hong Kong, which are staffed by people who help them re-enter normal lives. Crossroads began providing furniture for these homes soon after we started, in 1995. In 2015, we asked St Stephen’s how many of these homes we had furnished. They said, “We really couldn’t count them all, but you have supplied furniture for pretty well all of them!” As the saying has it, this has truly been a gift that has kept on giving! St Stephen’s has seen people not only freed from drug dependency, but go on to help others within Hong Kong and in other countries around the world. Our partnership with St Stephen’s has been a delight and is, again, proof that, while we may not be able to help people facing addiction ourselves, as we don’t have direct contact, we can help others help others.
