Description: After an unprecedented past year, the emotional well-being of Hong Kong’s elderly community continues to be at risk. Some of the older people in the city's report being lonely, especially those lacking regular contact with their families.

They will provide social connection and emotional support and help the staff to determine their well-being and immediate needs. 

Each volunteer joining this support program must be available once a week over a four-week period starting from June 11th.  Please note that we may extend this program to support elderly individuals for a longer period. 

Online training session: This will be conducted through Zoom. The meeting link will be sent to volunteers by email on or before June 3rd.
