    It is hard to imagine that Jason has a hearing loss when you see him dance. Even in the world that is completely silent, Jason wants to challenge the impossible, jump out of his comfort zone, and become a dancer. What is more important than performing on stage, for him, is to be in the spotlight and fight for the rights of the deaf community.

    Born in the 80s, Jason Wong Yiu Pong is the youngest kid in a family of five; in which four of the family members are also deaf. However, Jason was not born with hearing loss; it was caused by a severe fever when he was 3 years-old. Teachers in the kindergarten found out that Jason had a hearing loss, and he had completely lost his ability to hear while he was 6. It seems to be a common practice for hearing imparied kids to go to special school for the deaf, however, sign language was prohibited at school unexpectedly, therefore, Jason could only learn through reading teachers' lips. For him, the world was full of confusion in his student years.

    Jason started to dance when he was 20 years-old. It was difficult to pick up dancing at this age, and together with his hearing loss, dancing seems to be even harder. Yet Jason did not compromise, he put extra efforts to feel the rhythm and meaning in the music. Through dance, he found the doorway to his heart. In 2014, he won a scholarship and studied dance in New York. Jason expresses himself through dance and incorporates sign language into his performances, in order to be the voice for other hearing impaired fellows.

      Anonymous Angels

      On an ordinary day after the outbreak of the coronavirus, Hin was using the hand sanitizer provided by the residence, he suddenly thought of the residents in the tenement houses, who cannot enjoy free hand sanitizers. Therefore, he initiated the Hand Sanitizer Sharing Scheme For Tenement Buildings In 18 Districts. He was funded by some charity foundations; and he gathered a group of volunteers. Every weekend, the team visited tenement buildings all over Hong Kong and installed hand sanitizer bottles for free.

      Hin is passionate about voluntary work; he was a volunteer at the Missionary for Charity established by Mother Teresa and the vice-chairperson in a large-scale charity organization. In 2015, he founded the Build & Wish Voluntary Team, a non-religious, non-profit, and non-governmental voluntary organization. Through a variety of projects in these years, they have connected multiple welfare organizations and gathered a group of volunteers. The team has installed hand sanitizer bottles in more than 1,600 tenement houses. They have also connected a group of helpers in the neighbourhood to help refilling hand sanitizers.

      After establishing the voluntary team, Hin met Joe, the founder of Footprint Voluntary Services Association. They have a similar vision and therefore become partners for many charity programs. For instance, debugging and home cleaning for underprivileged residents, furniture recycling and delivery service for the poor, free delivery service, and home refurbishing service, and more. These charity programs were resumed when the situation of coronavirus was slightly calmed.

      Hin works as a structural engineer; while Joe works in an engineering company. When they and the other volunteers served the community, they always emphasized that they were not celebrities, and were not trying to promote themselves through social services. Therefore, they have never used their actual name when it comes to voluntary works - a group of genuine "anonymous angels" they are.

      Close Ties

      Close ties in neighbourhoods seem to have faded following the rapid development of urbanization. However, in some villages in the New Territories, this kind of close connection between villagers can still be found.

      Pang Ching, who had lived in Kwu Tung for 40 years, maintained a close relationship and network with her neighbors. People in the neighbourhood would visit each other during festivals, and would share their harvests. Pang cared especially about the needs of the elderlies in the community, therefore, she participated in the meal boxes delivery program organized by the Communion Lutheran Elderly Health Centre in Kwu Tung; volunteers would deliver meal boxes to the elderlies' door. Whenever there was an event, Pang would take care of the elderlies as a volunteer. However, the ties between villagers was coming to an end because of the North East New Territories New Development Areas Planning. All the residences in the area have to be demolished, and residents will be allocated to different housing estates.

      Many old villagers have spent their whole lives in the village, the resettlement made them feel insecure and scared. Some elderlies stayed at home all day because they were scared of getting lost. In order to help her former neighbors, Pang joined programs organized by the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Hong Kong Synod. The programs did not only include door-to-door soup delivery, volunteers would also show the elderlies around new communities, so that they can adapt to it soon.

      Raising kids in Hong Kong is never easy. Parents face multiple challenges, such as finance, housing, education, child-care, and more. If you are a mother of a young age, things could be even harder.

      There is a local shop which sells second-hand baby and maternity products. It accepts donated toys, as well as maternity merchandise, and then sells them after cleaning and refurbishing. What is so special about the shop is that all of the staff are young moms. Some of the young ladies got pregnant accidentally and hence dropped out of school; while some of them gave up their day jobs in order to take care of their young kids. This second-hand shop allows its staff to bring their kids to work, providing a place where they can work and take care of their kids at the same time.

      Angela was found pregnant unintentionally when she was 17 and therefore forced to drop out of school; she was referred to work at this store by a social worker. As her younger son suffers from chronic disease, Angela has to take care of him 24-hour. Luckily she found this place where she can bring her son to work and take care of him, which also eases her financial pressure.

      Mother of two girls, Bi quitted her day job after giving birth to her elder daughter at 20. She met other young moms in this shop with similar life experiences ; they have become each others' support. The shop has been a shelter for Bi; it does not only provide support financially but also emotionally.

      Under the heavy strike of both social movements and the global pandemic, the retail industry faces unprecedented challenges. The social enterprise funding period for the shop is expiring soon, what would the fate of this little shop be?

      Accompany

      There are so many homeless people in Hong Kong, what can we do to help them?

      Soso Cheng and Zoe Tse chose to take action and accompany those who lost their home for whatever reason. For them, this is not an act of charity, but an act of sharing and care.

      Early in 2014, the two met each other through a volunteer program named "We Love, Therefore We Share". The program was to serve the underprivileged who lived in Sham Shui Po district. After that, they wanted to extend this act of care to the Hong Kong Island district, where they resided, and encouraged people to show care and love to those in need. Therefore, they formed "Hong Kong Share Stories'' in 2018. They would visit the homeless, ragpickers, and street cleaners regularly; give them clothings and meal vouchers; and take care of their physical and mental needs.

      In just one year, lots of people participated in the program. Besides gathering materials, they have also encouraged many to spread love and care to the community through the program.

      Following the volunteer team, our presenter, Yuki Lovey, visited the underprivileged and felt sympathy for the plight of these people who are being "forgotten".
      Who can be their friends and be there for them through difficult times?

      Volunteering on Hong Kong's Outlying Islands

      Established in 2017, Capering Holistic Medical Alliance (CHMA) is a voluntary organization which joins professionals from disciplines of Western medicine, Chinese medicine and psychotherapy to deliver suitable help and care to those in need. Lam Kar-yeung, a registered Chinese medicine practitioner and the founder of CHMA, believes that they can help patients more effectively with the diverse expertises and skills of members. They offer services in Hong Kong's outlying islands, hoping to bring support to remote areas with relatively less medical facilities. During every visit, volunteers would perform blood glucose tests, measure blood pressure for the elderlies and follow up on their health conditions. The organization’s goal is to prevent the elderlies from getting sick, therefore, many health seminars were organized, teaching a variety of self-care skills, such as acupressure and towel exercises.

      CHMA also offers training to volunteers of different ages, for example, Yu Pak-hei, a 13 year-old boy, has served in the team for 5 years. Dr. Wong Kiu-fung, the co-founder of the CHMA, believes that if everyone could gain correct health information, there would be less outpatient, hence relieving the pressure on the local health care system indirectly.
