Since January, Hong Kong people have kept fighting against the COVID-19 virus and it is not surprise that the public has emerged the anti-pandemic fatigue. In view of this, Student Affairs Office of the Education University of Hong Kong organizes the 《Giving is Receiving》 Project from 7 September to 30 September.


Project Details

The《Giving is Receiving》 Project encourages EdUHK students, staff and community members to design unique blessing cards, artworks and handicrafts for the caretakers and service recipients in elderly homes, elderly centres, hospitals and SEN schools so as to promote caring culture. Participating organizations would also set up collection boxes to collect positive messages from the general public and send back to EdUHK students and staff in return. We hope to collect more than 1000 messages from the different participating organizations throughout this project so that we can create a love and care community.
