To raise funds for underprivileged children, in order to help each individual grow up with hope, self-confidence and good health
Our Service User's Story
David and his family moved to Hong Kong from the Mainland in 2018. In order to take care of the children, David's mother could only work a part-time job and was earning only HK$7,000 a month to support the family. David, who was unfamiliar with the new environment, did not understand traditional Chinese characters, and his English proficiency was far behind that of his classmates.
Although facing many difficulties, David did not give up and worked hard to adapt to the local learning environment. In 2019, he was introduced to the Mong Kok Service Centre and it was arranged for him to participate in After-School Care Class. Our tutors not only help with homework, but also strengthen practice for the student’s weakest areas. Finally, with the guidance of the tutors and support from Christian Action, he obtained excellent results in his studies and obtained "A" grade in all subjects. He will enter a top tier secondary school in Yau Tsim Mong District in September this year. His English ability has also improved significantly, even if he needs to talk with foreigners who speak fluently.
Since David and his sister joined the After-School Care Class, his mother can work a full-time job, hoping to become self-reliant. In addition to After-School Care Class, we also distributed food packs to the family providing adequate and balanced nutrition for David and his sister, who are in their developmental period; helping them to grow up with good health.
"I hope that when I grow up, my mother will not have to work so hard." David said that his mother walks up and down many steps to deliver meals every day, and often feels pain in her feet. He hopes he can become an Engineer and earn a good salary to reduce the financial burden on the family.
