COVID-19 Relief: Distributing Care Packages for isolating elderly in Tai Po

The program is made possible through a generous donation from the Macquarie Group Foundation.

Description: With most of Hong Kong’s elderly self-isolating, afraid and unable to leave their homes, help from the city’s volunteers is desperately needed to support their immediate needs and well-being. Assistance from volunteers also reduces the burden on stretched and under-resourced elderly centres acting as a virtual lifeline for the people they support. ​
 
Volunteer roles:  ​​
  • Volunteers will receive a short briefing and protective gear (masks, gloves, and hand sanitizers) upon arriving at the centre.
  • Volunteers will help to sort and assemble Care Package items including essential food and hygiene items. Volunteers will then form a team of two to deliver care packages directly to the doorsteps of families waiting to receive them.
  • 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:因應疫情影響,香港大部分長者都擔心或無法外出,唯有留在家中自我隔離以保障健康,因此這些弱勢群體迫切需要義工的幫助,來幫助滿足他們的日常需求。服務同時會減輕社區中心疫情期間的工作負擔。
 
 
義工角色:
  • 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)。
  • 義工將幫忙將遞送物資分裝入袋,並將物資直接送達至長者的家門口。遞送過程中, 請義工敲門告知受惠者,物資已放置門口再離去。
  • 請注意此服務涉及重物搬運。
 
義工安全:
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
