Every year, the United Nations celebrates the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) on 3 December which aims to promote the rights of people with disabilities in all aspects so that they can live in a fair and barrier-free society. The Hong Kong Society for Rehabilitation (HKSR) shares the same goal by not only providing physically rehabilitation service, but also focusing on disease prevention, health promotion and health-risk factor assessments.
The name ‘Empathy for Elderly’ is self-explanatory : able to step into senior citizens’ shoes and feel how they feel. This charitable organisation aims to nurture empathy and compassion in the community so that the public will understand more about the mental and physical needs of golden agers. Since 2013, volunteers have actualised its mission through their services.
