企業攜手「創」投社福
為推動商界肩負社會責任,集結資源關懷社會弱勢,香港中華基督教青年會(YMCA)自2015年推出Y-Care企業伙伴計劃,不經不覺已邁向第四個年頭。為鼓勵企業繼續積極參與,本會早前舉辦第二屆Y-Care企業伙伴計劃頒獎禮,當日更以「『創』投社福」為題,邀請嘉賓為企業分享如何將科技應用於社福服務,為受眾提升生活質素。

企業攜手「創」投社福 與企業經過三年的努力,今屆頒獎禮上共有21間企業分別獲頒金、銀、銅伙伴、新晉企業伙伴以及積極參與獎。其中奪得金伙伴的恒生銀行,在16-17年度先後派出超過300名義工,參與超過60次義工活動,總服務時數高達1,400小時,成為各企業之冠,更憑此勇奪今屆的積極參與獎,其參與活動包括全力支持本會社企YM Balloon舉辦的「恒生─YMCA快樂『球』學計劃」,透過氣球藝術訓練,發掘SEN學童的潛能。

科技與生活息息相關,有見市場上不少適用於照顧長者或弱勢的創意科技產物漸見成熟,所以,本會今年特別邀請香港中文大學工程學院副院長(外務)黃錦輝教授(M.H),以及「星之子」陳易希先生,BBS,擔任嘉賓,以「『創』投社福」為題,為到場企業分析創新科技於社福界實踐的可行性及挑戰。

為讓企業加深了解將創新科技用於社會福利的概念,本會邀請了本會柴灣長者鄰舍中心的同工及老友記,親身示範如何利用「開心舞獅」的體感遊戲,訓練長者的平衡及靈活性;另外青年會小學的師生,亦透過展示過往得獎的機械人,為各企業講解推行STEAM對學生帶來的好處,而場內亦有香港電訊及白塔研究所的攤位,為企業介紹新科技在社會服務的應用。

我們期望透過頒獎禮,鼓勵於過去一年積極參與Y-Care義工服務的企業再接再厲,與本會攜手推動義工服務,帶動更多企業加入我們的行列。

「同繪新一頁」首映會圓滿舉行為推動社區共融,YMCA展開「新夥相傳」計劃,讓金齡人士發揮所長,協助新來港家庭適應新生活。為配合宣傳計劃理念,本會特別拍攝微電影「同繪新一頁」,更於本月初假UAiSQUARE舉行首映會,當日除邀得年僅廿歲出頭、畢業於電影系的年輕導演勞榕蔭,香港土生土長、扮演新移民的女主角徐月玲擔任嘉賓外,更邀得印度裔藝人喬寶寶到場分享在港的生活點滴,以及藝人方健儀擔任嘉賓司儀。

首映會當日全場滿座,觀眾們對影片的製作以及故事意念相當讚賞,本會協調幹事蕭婉玲女士在分享環節透露,當初構思「新夥相傳」計劃的意念,原來與其退休父親有關,她希望所有退休、以及來港生活的「新鮮人」,都可以透過計劃,重新找到自己在社會中的定位;而女主角徐月玲更分享她扮演新來港人士前,為代入角色而努力練習咬字,希望能反映現實之餘又不會丑化新移民,實在下了不少功夫。

為期三年的「新夥相傳」計劃,將會繼續推出多項活動,讓金齡人士與新移民家庭有更緊密的支援網絡連繫,達至教學相長,社會共融的計劃理念。

A University YMCA refugee service trip to Thessaloniki – serving and learning at the same time!

 

Recently, 14 students from our Uni-Y based at the University of Hong Kong were given an incredible opportunity: acquiring first-hand knowledge of the European refugee crisis and gaining insights into the on-the-ground situation experienced by migrants.

世界青年會消息 Thanks to the organisation’s support and warm hospitality given to them on their trip to Greece by the World YMCA and the YMCA of Thessaloniki, the students got to participate in voluntary services and fruitful discussions with staff from the Department of Social Action of the local YMCA, activists from the community, NGOs and government officials.

The eleven-day trip, which ran from 3 to 13 of January 2018, began with an orientation tour of the initiatives that the YMCA of Thessaloniki has in place to support refugees in the city. After that, the students spent four days in the Diavata Refugee Camp, where they coordinated different art, science, sports and handicraft programmes for refugee children and talked with the staff from an NGO and members of the municipal government based in the camp. During their time there, the students were surprised by the hygienic environment of the camp, touched by the warm welcome of the people staying there and impressed by the children’s eagerness, motivation to learn and incredible potential in their different areas of interest.

The students’ passion for getting to know each other and building friendships allowed them to overcome any cultural differences or language barriers: their use of body language, songs, sports, dancing and hands-on learning activities helped them bond with the children and families staying at the camp.
The students also had the good fortune of meeting Mr Vasilis Tsartsanis, a generous-hearted refugee activist who helped thousands of refugees staying in the Eidomeni refugee camp, and who is still active in European refugee advocacy work.

Mr Tsartsanis guided the visiting students on a tour of the site of the now-evacuated Eidomeni camp, explaining in great details the history of the migrants, smugglers and the refugee problem itself. The students were accompanied on this tour by a counsellor from the Ministry of Migration Policy and the director of a health centre.

The team were then invited to Mr Tsartsanis’ home in Polykastro to view an exhibition on the life of refugees in the evacuated camp. This was followed by a fruitful sharing session with people in the community who were motivated by the kindness and generosity given to the refugees by Mr Tsartsanis in the past. The students were touched by how the community altruistically helped the refugees out of an unconditional regard for fellow human beings.

The trip was filled with discoveries, friendships, laughs, reflections and insights. From being impressed by the diversified refugee initiatives at the YMCA of Thessaloniki, to engaging with little children at the Diavata Refugee Camp, to holding meaningful discussions with activist groups and ministry officials; every step of the way the students gained a profound understanding of the attitudes of different parties and the Greek government towards refugees and migrants in general.

At the end of the trip, the team’s student leaders shared what they had learned in two interviews with the local media. Now, after their return, the students are hoping to share their insights with the wider Hong Kong community, possibly influencing how citizens of our city act and react when faced with similar issues.
