More than 30 "Friends of Red Cross”together with their families and friends participated in "Humanitarian Caring Visit "on 1st Dec to deliver their care and warm to the elderly living at Shun On Estate, Shun Lee Estate and Shun Tin Estate in Kwun Tong.
We have visited several singleton elderly, two-person elderly-only and elderly with carer households on that morning. We brought love and care to the elderly together with a gift pack to prepare the cold weather. In addition, we shared the preparedness messages and assessed their ability to prepare cold weather and prevent fire.
Our volunteers also recognized 31 households lacking of protection from the cold through the visit. Therefore, we distributed quilts, blankets and jackets to the elderly in need before cold spell on December 7. Hope the elderly can get well prepared in this winter and strengthen the community resilience.
