HKSH Village Volunteers Successfully Raise HK$500,000 through "Walk For A Vision" Event to Sponsor Students in Need for Emotional Health Programme

(25 March 2024, Hong Kong) Over 200 staff and friends of HKSH Medical Group (HKSH) took part in the 16th “Walk for a Vision” event organised by HKSH Village Volunteers yesterday and successfully raised almost half a million for Sweet Home Psychological Wellness Centre (Sweet Home). The fund raised will be utilised to sponsor 38 emotionally distressed children, ranging from Primary 1 to Secondary 6, to receive comprehensive psychological and emotional support services. These services will be provided by psychiatrists, play and creative arts therapists, psychological counsellors as well as social workers as part of Sweet Home’s “We Are Here – Multi-professional Emotional Health Programme for Students”. “Walk For A Vision” is an annual charity event that has been held since 2009. Organised by HKSH Village Volunteers, the walkathon aims to provide support to various underprivileged communities by offering medical and health-related services through selected charity organisations. The funds raised during the walkathon are used to sponsor these NGOs and their initiatives. This year, HKSH Village Volunteers has chosen Sweet Home as the beneficiary of the event.
