On 19 September, 360 Sharing Ambassador donated a number of computers, monitors, keyboards and mice, as well as an iron, a hairdryer and a coffee maker we collected from staff members earlier, to the Neighbourhood Advice-Action Council (NAAC)’s Tung Chung Integrated Services Centre.
NAAC will give the appliances to families in need. Colleagues from our Information System Section installed the computers in the NAAC’s computer room so that low income families can surf the Internet.
On 9 Aug, 360 Sharing Ambassador participated in the Jockey Club YouChallenge Programme, organised by the Society of Rehabilitation and Crime Prevention. A group of disadvantaged young people were invited by us to join the DIY 360 workshop at Ngong Ping Village, crafting their own 3D photo frame for Tung Chung’s children from low-income family.
By understanding and communicating with them, we hope to show our support and care to the disadvantaged youth.
On 21 April, Ngong Ping 360 co-organised the seventh annual Islands District Healthy City Tree Planting Festival, which was hosted by the Islands District Council and the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department. The festival involved planting 1000 native seedlings on Nei Lak Shan. Participants enjoyed a cable car journey from Tung Chung to Ngong Ping Village and a leisure hiking to Nei Lak Shan for tree planting. They experienced the beautiful local scenery while taking part in this green event.
About 70 volunteers from 360 Sharing Ambassador, including 10 Ma On Shan’s primary students from low-income families participated in planting seedlings and hiking on the day. The volunteers introduced Ngong Ping’s unique insects and plants to the students. This meaningful event is worthy of support.
