Doing handmade activities with elderly in Central

Description: With most of Hong Kong’s elderly self-isolating due to the pandemic, their daily lives and personal network have been greatly affected. Through doing traditional handmade activities together, the elderly individuals can use their self experiences and skills to share their life experiences and the history of Central and Western district with ​the volunteers. This strengthens the community connectedness and encourages cross-generation communications.

Volunteer roles:  ​
  • Volunteers will join the handmade tutorial classes with the elderly and make flower baskets (on Dec 1st), clay bowls (on Dec 8th & 15th) or traditional snacks (on Jan 12th) together. ​
  • Volunteers will then form groups with the elderly individuals to play games and do the sharing.
 
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
