Join Hands Again with the Rainbow Covenant

Since 2015, Haven of Hope Christian Service (HOHCS) has been organising the charity run, regardless changes around the world, and so as this year. Having undergone the anti-pandemic era for more than a year, perhaps you may notice that life is as usual under the series of social distancing measures. Yet, there is little direct interpersonal communication, and our lives seem to be lacking a sense of warmth and realism. “HOPES RUNNER 2021 Online Run for Life & Walk with God 15th Anniversary: Thankful Worship ‧ Thankful Walk” enables you to reconnect with other people. The Bible cited, after God destroyed the entire world with a flood, the rainbow covenant was guaranteed to mankind with the promise of salvation. Through the “HOPES RUNNER 2021 Online Run for Life & Walk with God 15th Anniversary: Thankful Worship ‧ Thankful Walk”, let us embrace hope and run towards the rainbow in our heart.

Learn from HUGUS, Feel by Heart

Designed by a local young talent design team, HUGUS is a white teddy bear with no eyes and mouth. The shining light in its tummy is its distinct feature, symbolising that love is unbound by appearance and should be felt by heart. That said, HUGUS loves expressing its emotion by hugs. A bear hug with touching and warmth says more than a thousand words. HUGUS performs as the ambassador for “HOPES RUNNER 2021 Online Run for Life & Walk with God 15th Anniversary: Thankful Worship ‧ Thankful Walk”, and will take lead in the event. It is hoped that the participants can learn from HUGUS to cherish the people around us.

Fundraising for Haven of Hope Sister Annie Skau Holistic Care Centre

The “HOPES RUNNER 2021 Online Run for Life & Walk with God 15th Anniversary: Thankful Worship ‧ Thankful Walk” will be held on 4 December 2021 (Saturday). It aims to raise HK$2 million for Haven of Hope Sister Annie Skau Holistic Care Centre’s (SASHCC) expansion project, which is a crucial part of “The Haven Project”, a 10-year infrastructure development plan. The project involves the building of Hospice Care Block and Education, Training and Research Centre, Long-term Care Wing, Geriatric Transitional Care Centre, and the renovation of Wah Wing Block. Forging into its 15th anniversary, SASHCC is always the rainbow after the rain, bringing hopes to those suffered patients and providing palliative care, rehabilitation and all-round spiritual care for the frail elderly, chronic disease and late-stage patients. As the expansion project will be gradually in place, we hope that more patients and their family members can be benefited.

HOHCS has been upholding the spirit of servicing the society with “Respecting Life.Impacting Life” of Sister Annie Skau, founder of HOHCS. In view of the recent escalating ageing problem in the Tseung Kwan O district, which has posed great challenges to the community, HOHCS initiated the Haven Project. Capitalising on the integration of HOHCS’ expertise and experience that have been accumulated for years in elderly medical and rehabilitation services, as well as the infrastructure development, it sets sight on improving medical and social services, ranging from the expansion of Haven of Hope Hospital, the extension of SASHCC, the renovation of Haven of Hope Woo Ping Care & Attention Home, the New Standalone Purpose-built Care and Attention Home for Severely Disabled Persons and Nursing Home, the New Standalone Day Activity Centre cum Hostel for Severely Mentally Handicapped Persons.
