Sowing seeds of love to the elderly on Hang Lung Nationwide Volunteer Day

The Hang Lung As One Volunteer Team celebrates its 10th anniversary on Hang Lung Nationwide Volunteer Day 2022 by showing care for the elderly across Hong Kong and mainland China.

Hang Lung Properties recently held its annual Nationwide Volunteer Day in Hong Kong and nine cities in mainland China, which also marks the 10th anniversary of the Hang Lung As One Volunteer Team.

In view of the challenges brought about by an aging population, especially among dementia sufferers and solo-dwelling seniors, over 1,200 corporate volunteers work in concert under this year’s theme “Diversity and Inclusion – Caring for the Elderly” as they reach out to nearly 5,500 seniors on Hang Lung Nationwide Volunteer Day, bringing love and care while building an inclusive and compassionate society.

Comprising volunteers in Hong Kong and nine cities in mainland China, the Hang Lung As One Volunteer Team join hands with local governments, tenants and NGOs to offer care and support to most-needed areas.

Their services on Hang Lung Nationwide Volunteer Day include visiting elderly centres and residential communities where they distributed handmade gift packs, gave haircuts, cleaned the house and played interactive games with the elderly.

Love extends to Lantau

In Hong Kong, the Hang Lung As One Volunteer Team invited a group of elderly dementia patients and their carers to an excursion to the leafy suburbs of Lantau Island.
Led by the management team of Hang Lung and 100 volunteers, it was a relaxing day for the participants as they made DIY pizzas, created wood chunk paintings and experienced forest therapy in the midst of nature.

Meanwhile, some volunteers also went to Tai O to visit households with frail seniors and offer assistance on their physical and mental health needs. Hang Lung will also distribute 1,000 sets of the Five Senses Training Tools to families with dementia patients and elderly persons to help train their senses and delay deterioration.

“Hang Lung has always actively contributed to society through community investment projects that enhance public wellbeing, promote diversity and inclusion, and enrich lives,” says Weber Lo, Chief Executive Officer of Hang Lung Properties.

“The 10th anniversary of Hang Lung As One Volunteer Team is an important milestone,” he adds. “I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the volunteers for living up to our motto We Do It Well, and for their continued dedication to the sustainable growth of the community.”

Established in Hong Kong in 2012, the Hang Lung As One Volunteer Team takes the initiative to work with community groups and charitable organizations to support wellbeing in society.

Over the past decade, the Hang Lung As One Volunteer Team has set up 12 teams across 11 projects in nine cities in mainland China, involving over 9,500 volunteers and 112,000 accumulated service hours. They take part in social service activities to promote diversity and inclusion, health and wellbeing of the elderly, youth education and development, and environmental protection.
