Caritas Rehabilitation Service
明愛康復服務

Since 1976, Caritas Rehabilitation Service has been committed to improving the livelihoods of children and young adults with intellectual disabilities. Through providing a range of supportive programmes, they are determined to impart self-reliance and fuller participation in community living to the target groups. Assisting the caregivers and educating the public are also their means to realise an integrated society.

The project ‘Hope’, sponsored by OSC, intends to maximise the coping abilities of pre-school children with special educational needs (SEN) and their parents. Bringing up therapeutic treatments, training, peer support groups, online videos, and adequate equipment, the charitable organisation will direct undivided attention to this particular group of children, as well as lift the emotional toll on their parents.

No. of beneficiaries: 200 (100 0-4 years old children with SEN and 100 parents)

「明愛康復服務」自1976年一直致力改善智障兒童和青年的生活。他們透過提供一系列的計劃,協助弱能人士自力更生,全面參與社區生活。他們亦透過為弱能人士之照顧者提供輔導及推行公眾教育,建立傷健共融的社區。

「明愛康復服務」獲「愛心聖誕大行動」贊助,將推行“Hope”計劃,協助有特殊教育需要(SEN) 的學前兒童及其父母應付他們的需要。他們將提供康復治療、培訓、同儕支持小組、網上影片及各種設備,全力支援SEN兒童,並減輕父母的情感負擔。

Home of Loving Faithfulness
可愛忠實之家

People with special needs have been the most marginalised group in society for a long period of time. Seeing the disabled being deprived of education, employment and decent healthcare, the founders of Home of Loving Faithfulness created a home to provide life-long residential care for children and adults in a family setting. This home has been welcoming with open arms for half a century. The home aims to empower young disabled people in Hong Kong to achieve their fullest potential.

With support from OSC, it provides life-long special care and attention to those who need constant monitoring. The less physically challenged family members are encouraged to develop skills appropriate to their level of understanding, to develop their capability.

香港這個繁榮城市,背後隱藏著被社會邊緣化的殘疾人士。1965年,兩位英籍女士見到香港有特殊需要的兒童,得不到應有教育和醫療保健,因此他們本着基督仁愛精神設立可愛忠實之家,為香港殘疾人士提供終身護理服務。

今年可愛忠實之家得到愛心聖誕大行動的支持,護理人員和義工將致力為院友提供全面的住宿護理服務,為嚴重殘疾的院友提供終生照顧服務,為輕度殘疾的成員給予適切的技能訓練,以鼓勵年輕殘疾人士充分發揮他們的潛能。
