Home generally means a place you live in, but also refers to the family that lives together there. We may have a slightly different understanding to the word ‘home’, but we do look for something similar: going back to a safe and warm haven after a day’s hard work.

According to a survey by the Sham Shui Po Subdivided Units Mothers Mutual Aid Association conducted in March 2021, a 100-square-foot sub-divided unit in the district was more than HK$5,000 a month, accounting for about 55% of family income for grassroots households. To support the high rent, some families and elderly visit fast-food restaurants for everyday meals for themselves and their families. The abominable housing environment adversely affects the physical and mental health of the grassroots people, not to mention their social life and neighborhood relations.

The Salvation Army is dedicated to serving the disadvantaged groups. Experienced in operating community  housing, we understand the needs of the grassroots. The Army’s singleton hostel Sunrise House and To Kwa Wan Community Housing Project have helped many low-income individuals and grassroots families integrate into the community and build a new life. At present, the former site of The Salvation Army Sam Shing Chuen Lau Ng Ying School in Tuen Mun will be converted to a community housing development in 2022, to be operated by the Army, providing adequate and secure housing for people with urgent housing needs. Tenants will find their second ‘home’ in this community.

Based on our successful experience, we provide professional social services, Corps (church) support, co-living space facilities and community activities, all aimed to strengthen the relationships among households and their connection with the community, promoting the ‘To.Gather’ spirit.

You are cordially invited to make a donation to support about 115 households to install the basic electric appliances and furniture, and also provide rental allowance for people with urgent needs. Your support will help the disadvantaged groups of poor living conditions and provide them with a place of refuge to rebuild their home and see hope again.

Use of Donation HK$10,000 can support the installation of water heater, air-conditioner and induction stove for a unit.

HK$3,000 can support to provide rental allowance for people with urgent housing needs.

HK$1,000 can support the provision of basic furniture and decorations for a unit.

“The more the merrier! “

Under the threats of Covid-19 epidemic, travel addicts like us Hong Kong people are not able to travel, so we are spending a lot more time at home, and with our family as well. Together we are having many different activities and building loving memories. We realised that as long as the family are united, everything we do together is worth cherishing.
