COVID-19 Relief: Distributing Care Packages for low-income families To Kwa Wan

Description: More than 20% of our population lives in poverty, surviving on less than HK$4,000 each month and was struggling to make ends meet even before this pandemic. Now, with many of them living in fear and having their livelihoods impacted, they are in more dire need than ever.
Part of the burden on Hong Kong’s low-income families (and the community centres acting as their lifeline), can be eased through the provision of relief Care Packages. Each pack will last a household for one week.
Volunteer roles: 
· Volunteers will receive a short briefing and protective gear (masks, gloves, and hand sanitizers) upon arriving at the community centre.
· Volunteers will help to sort and assemble Care Package items including essential food and hygiene items and other necessities during the first session. 
· Volunteers will support centre staff with the distribution of these relief packs when families arrive for collection during last two sessions. 
· Please be aware of the service involves heavy lifting. 
Volunteer safety:
Centre staff and volunteers will adopt HandsOn Hong Kong COVID-19 safety precautions in-line with Centre for Health Protection guidelines. If you have any questions regarding this service, please directly email to hohk@handsonhongkong.org
活動簡介:超過20%的人口生活在貧困中,每月靠少於4,000港元生存,他們甚至在疫情之前都在努力維持生計。 現在,由於他們許多人生活在恐懼中並且生計受到影響,這些人比以往任何時候都更加迫切需要幫忙。

提供物資可以減輕香港低收入家庭(以及為其提供服務的社區中心)的部分負擔。 每份物資包將支援一個家庭一週的生活所需。
  • 每位義工抵達中心之時,中心工作人員將會提供指引及相關保護物品(口罩、手套及酒精搓手液)。
  • 5月29日,8位義工將幫忙把遞送物資分裝入袋。
  • 6月3日及5日,6位義工將協助中心職員在機構中心直接分發這些物資給到場領取的家庭。
  • 請注意此服務涉及重物搬運。
中心及義工遵守COVID-19預防措施指引。 如有任何查詢,請直接電郵至 hohk@handsonhongkong.org
