Caring for Underprivileged Children

Caring for Underprivileged ChildrenTo reinforce our commitment in supporting the health care and special learning needs of children, about HK$800,000 was donated to Heep Hong Society to set up a Sensory Integrative (SI) Room at its Mary Wong Centre in Kwun Tong and a Musical-Movement and Play Therapy Room at Cheung Ching Estate in Tsing Yi. These rooms, equipped with special facilities for climbing, swinging, sliding, landing and tactile simulation, play an important role in helping children with sensory-processing problems to overcome their handicap through the globally recognized technique of SI therapy.

Manulife has also supported the "Meal-Subsidy Plan" of Hong Chi Association to provide mentally handicapped children from low income families with free lunch meals. The company has also donated a gym room to its Morninghill School in Tuen Mun to support the wellbeing of the less fortunate children.

Manulife is backing a tailor-made series of courses for youngsters, aged 4-18 years, under the Small Group Homes scheme of the Sheng Kung Hui St. Christopher's Home through the launch of a Development Program.
