Youth Opportunity: Deliver care packages for isolating elderly in Central

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 collect grocery items and other necessities from a local elderly centre and deliver them directly to the doorsteps of self-isolating elderly in the district. ​
  • Volunteers will receive a short briefing and protective gear (masks, gloves, and hand sanitizers) upon arriving at the centre.
  • Two volunteers will form a team to pack and deliver care packages to the households. After leaving the package on the elderly individual’s doorstep, the volunteer will knock on the door to inform them before leaving. 
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
  • 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)。
  • 在自我保護裝備完成之後,義工將幫忙將遞送物資分裝入袋。
  • 兩人一組送達至長者家門口。遞送過程中, 請義工敲門告知長者,物資已放置門口再離去。
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
