Caritas Rehabilitation Service
明爱康复服务

Since 1976, Caritas Rehabilitation Service has been committed to improving the livelihoods of children and young adults with intellectual disabilities. Through providing a range of supportive programmes, they are determined to impart self-reliance and fuller participation in community living to the target groups. Assisting the caregivers and educating the public are also their means to realise an integrated society.

The project ‘Hope’, sponsored by OSC, intends to maximise the coping abilities of pre-school children with special educational needs (SEN) and their parents. Bringing up therapeutic treatments, training, peer support groups, online videos, and adequate equipment, the charitable organisation will direct undivided attention to this particular group of children, as well as lift the emotional toll on their parents.

No. of beneficiaries: 200 (100 0-4 years old children with SEN and 100 parents)

「明爱康复服务」自1976年一直致力改善智障儿童和青年的生活。他们透过提供一系列的计划,协助弱能人士自力更生,全面参与社区生活。他们亦透过为弱能人士之照顾者提供辅导及推行公众教育,建立伤健共融的社区。

「明爱康复服务」获「爱心圣诞大行动」赞助,将推行“Hope”计划,协助有特殊教育需要(SEN) 的学前儿童及其父母应付他们的需要。他们将提供康复治疗、培训、同侪支持小组、网上影片及各种设备,全力支援SEN儿童,并减轻父母的情感负担。

受惠人数:200名(100名0-4岁SEN儿童和100名父母)

Home of Loving Faithfulness
可爱忠实之家

People with special needs have been the most marginalised group in society for a long period of time. Seeing the disabled being deprived of education, employment and decent healthcare, the founders of Home of Loving Faithfulness created a home to provide life-long residential care for children and adults in a family setting. This home has been welcoming with open arms for half a century. The home aims to empower young disabled people in Hong Kong to achieve their fullest potential.

With support from OSC, it provides life-long special care and attention to those who need constant monitoring. The less physically challenged family members are encouraged to develop skills appropriate to their level of understanding, to develop their capability.

香港这个繁荣城市,背后隐藏着被社会边缘化的残疾人士。1965年,两位英籍女士见到香港有特殊需要的儿童,得不到应有教育和医疗保健,因此他们本着基督仁爱精神设立可爱忠实之家,为香港残疾人士提供终身护理服务。

今年可爱忠实之家得到爱心圣诞大行动的支持,护理人员和义工将致力为院友提供全面的住宿护理服务,为严重残疾的院友提供终生照顾服务,为轻度残疾的成员给予适切的技能训练,以鼓励年轻残疾人士充分发挥他们的潜能。
