Other Support Services

The cost of living in Hong Kong is among the highest in the world showing that the city’s wealth inequality is stark. This means grassroots families and vulnerable people face all kinds of challenges in their daily lives. Christian Action provides the appropriate support to help these people address their different needs.

Since 2016, we have provided after-school care service to vulnerable families in Kwun Tong and neighbouring areas. Among these families, 40% of the children have special education needs. In 2017, we have launched the Blessing Meal Programme where hot meals are given to those in need in the neighbourhood from Monday to Friday.

Influenced by the Chinese proverb “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime,” we have started in 2001 helping people who receive Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) and youth through the government’s Integrated Employment Assistance Programme for Self-reliance (formerly Intensive Employment Assistance Project). We provide a one-stop comprehensive employment assistance services, helping those people to rebuild their self-confidence so that they can reenter the workforce and become self-reliant.
