Community Service - Care for the Elderly

Parent-child volunteers of the Association paid a visit to an elderly centre of Banyan Elderly Services Association to bring games and joy to 30 elderly persons.  In a way to cultivate positive and healthy personality of cleft lip and palate children, 13 members, their parents and several volunteers participated in this community service.  Our Community Caring Team played games, sang, performed plate spinning and distributed gift packs to the elderly persons.  The event successfully concluded with a joyful song sung by our young members and the elderly.  They all had a great time that day.

School Promotional Activities

The Association carried out promotional activities at Ling Liang Church E Wun Secondary School, Maryknoll Convent School, Lok Sin Tong Primary School and Ling To Catholic Primary School.  Our members and their parents gave sharing sessions at these schools, aiming to let students understand about cleft deformity, learn to respect and to enhance their understanding and acceptance towards cleft lip and palate patients.  We felt very encouraging to receive some positive feedbacks from the students that they would not have learned about cleft deformity without attending the sharing sessions.

Outdoor Activities for Children

The Association co-operated with Rotaract Club of United College of the Chinese University of Hong Kong to provide our young members leadership training through outdoor and classroom games, and to experience campus life at the University.  These specifically-designed games were aimed to promote creativity and self-confidence, all of which could help cleft lip and palate children to develop skills for resolving conflicts and overcoming challenges.

Thank you for your support to the Hong Kong Association for Cleft Lip and Palate (HKACLP) !

With your support, we managed to bring more smiles to patients with cleft lip and palate and their parents. Below are some highlights of our activities in 2016 Quarter 3.

 

Non-surgical Correction for Newborn CLP Babies

Recently, with the help of our maxillofacial prosthetic technician we have launched a new service as ‘non-surgical correction for newborn CLP babies’ which helps to reduce the severity of initial cleft lip, cleft alveolar, and nasal deformity, that may facilitate surgical repairs to achieve a better result.

 

Medical talk

Considering the needs of members in different stages, the HKACLP invited Dr. George Li, Honorary Clinical Associate Professor,  Division of Plastic, Head & Neck Surgery, Department of Surgery, The University of Hong Kong, to give a medical talk titled "Surgeries for Cleft Lip & Palate Patients" on December 9 to broaden the parents’ and patients’ knowledge on cleft lip and palate surgical treatments.

 

New born CLP babies' parents Group

The New born CLP babies' parents Group consisted of 3 sessions. The contents of the 3 sessions covering treatment schedule & caretaking of CLP babies from birth to 2 years old, which will focus on explaining lip & palate surgical repairs, the management of scars, dental care, speech training and proper up bring of CLP children. Through veteran volunteers' explanation, experience sharing and emotional support, new parents may understand the skills of care taking affected babies and get well prepared for treatments. This can reduce the parents' anxieties and worries, and therefore help them to face up to the treatments for their children in the future positively.

This year’s community exhibition was held on 19th March 2016 in the Stanley Plaza. More than 10 volunteers participated in this event.

This event has attracted many people and it was completed successfully under the joint effort of all volunteers.

2016 Cleft Lip and Palate Charity Medical Consultation

11 volunteers of HKACLP joined the “2016 Cleft Lip and Palate Charity Medical Consultation” organized by the Hong Kong University Shen Zhen Hospital, the Rotary Club of Hong Kong Island West, the Rotary Club of Victoria Peak and the Beam International Foundation from 14th to 17th April 2016.

Volunteers share photos of their own children with Cleft Lip and Palate before and after surgeries, distributed leaflets about HKACLP and explained the services and support available. Also, they made a visit to the waiting area of Operation Theater to comfort parents whose children were receiving surgeries. Then volunteers gave out free feeding equipments to the parents, and teach how to take care of their children after surgery. These few days in Shen Zhen were meaningful for the volunteers, and they look forward to participate in this kind of event in the future.
