Auntie Chen turns 88 years old this year, and is living alone. Auntie  Chen has been our Outreach Angel beneficiary for more than three years!

Auntie Chen lives with a cheerful and positive attitude. From a young age, she has been doing heavy labor to support her family, and as she got older, her legs have become more and more painful. Now, she must rely on a walking stick to aid her. Auntie Chen said “I like your Outreach colleagues, every time they visit me we chat, having someone to talk to will make me live longer!”

Care and love is what the elderly hope for, and this is our mission at Food Angel.

*Our Outreach Angels deliver meal boxes and food packs to the elderly Monday through Fridays. Since the program launch, our volunteers have offered support to 150 vulnerable elderly in Sau Kei Wan suffering from chronic illnesses, impaired mobility, and/or those living in loneliness or in isolation.

Home-bound elderly especially look forward to every visit by our Outreach Angels who help to re-establish a much needed connection between them and their community.

Eva is Food Angel’s volunteer team leader. In the past, she has worked in HR department, but has now dedicated herself to our volunteer service. After the video, she said “I truly love Food Angel’s volunteer service because I personally witness lives being changed”.

Every day at Food Angel, 200 volunteers are needed before 6000 nutritious hot meals and 1000 food packs can be prepared. Volunteer work includes preparing ingredients, serving meals, cooking, serving the elderly, all of which are valuable experiences. Food Angel invites you to join our volunteer team, witness lives be changed, and discover your true self.

Poon Choi Banquet

On 8/12, a Poon Choi banquet composed of donated food was held at Food Angel’s 3rd Floor Community Center. Combined with the cold weather, Poon Choi just adds some extra atmosphere! This is the first time Food Angel’s community center has arranged Poon Choi, and the elders were delighted. The caring volunteers, the bustling meal, resulted in a special experience for everyone.

Please also don’t forget our “Christmas Season of Giving Fundraising Event”. Do you wish our elders to enjoy as much as they did today? 

Food Angel’s Christmas Season of Giving Fundraising Event is fully in motion. For only $10 HKD, Food Angel can provide 1 nutritious hot meal. As you prepare for your Christmas feast, are you willing to buy someone a meal and make this Christmas extra meaningful? We ask for your donations, so that the elderly, low income families, and other vulnerable groups, can receive food and care.

Canstruction® Hong Kong is a talk of the town charity event organized by Food Angel and supported by Prudential Hong Kong Limited this year. Combining creativity, team spirit and philanthropic mind, the event aims to raise not only canned food but also a wider public awareness of people in need across Hong Kong.

More than 300 professionals, architects, designers and volunteers gathered at Hysan Place and Lee Theatre on 25 June 2016 to build 6 cansculptures with the theme of "Childhood Memories" by using nutritious cans of food. The cansculptures exhibition was held from 25 June to 5 July to raise public awareness of hunger issues in Hong Kong.

At the close of the exhibition, all canned foods used to build the structures are donated to Food Angel, and ultimately redistributed to the underprivileged communities across Hong Kong free of charge.

 

About Canstruction:

Canstruction is a unique charity which hosts competitions, exhibitions and events showcasing colossal structures made entirely out of full cans of food. After the structures are built, the cansculptures go on display to the public as a giant art exhibition. At the end of the event, all food is donated to local hunger relief organizations.

Canstruction has helped raise over 25 million pounds of food since 1992.  Canstruction events are held annually in over 150 cities around the world including North America, Australia, South America, Europe and Asia.

In 2012, Hong Kong became the 207th city around to world to host a Canstruction Competition. It is the very first Asian city to host this unique charity event or any competition of this kind.

Story of Uncle Chui

When we entered Uncle Chui’s home, he was sitting on the bed and trying to put on his socks. Even though Uncle Chui had tools to assist him, he still found it very difficult to put on his socks because of his age and vision loss. He spent almost ten minutes to put on his socks and shoes with the assistance of Food Angel’s social worker.

In the past, although Uncle Chui could not take care of himself, his wife could help prepare three meals for him. Almost a year ago, his neighbor introduced them Food Angel’s Food Rescue and Assistance Program. Since then, the couple’s living standard has improved a lot.

Unfortunately, Mrs Chui went to hospital due to illness few months ago. The doctor advised Mrs Chui to stay in a nursing home after she has recovered from her illness. Since then, Uncle Chui left alone at home, feeling despaired as he was long separated from his wife.

Uncle Chui said reluctantly, “If I could afford it, I would rather cook by myself. But now I could not event walk properly, how could I manage to buy food and cook?” Uncle Chui is very grateful to be one of the recipients of Food Angel’s Food Assistance Program. He would also like to express his special thankfulness to the Outreach Angel Team’s support and care during his difficult time.

Since January 2014, our Outreach Angel Team has delivered hot meals to Mr Chui’s home on a daily basis and help him to solve other basic needs. As of March 2015, Outreach Angel serves 112 households in need on a daily basis.
