When Hong Kong was still a Crown colony, Tim was in the British Royal Navy. As a Chief Petty Officer, he was in the highest military rank among the ethnic Chinese soldiers serving in the Navy. After the transfer of sovereignty, Tim then joined a large group as a storeroom-in-charge for handling procurement matters for the Wharf group.
We hosted our very first Chinese New Year Carnival and Open Day this year to celebrate the Year of the Rooster!
I was ecstatic to see over 1,100 visitors arriving at our New Horizons Building.
Chinese New Year brings in a festive month of events, not only in Hong Kong, but also around the world. The Year of the Rooster, which kicked off on 28 January 2017, was celebrated in Asian communities worldwide. While people were marking the occasion with an array of activities and events, I felt particularly warmed when I received greetings from children that CA had helped in the past.
Since I started having this blog site in 2009, I have told you many stories about the abandoned children who have been helped in our Qinghai Children's Home.
One of those stories was about Eric, a child who had cerebral palsy...
Fifteen years ago, Dada felt extremely helpless when she first arrived in our Fragrant Harbour with her little son. Like most of the other New Arrivals from China, she had been trained well in China, but employers in Hong Kong did not recognize her qualifications. Getting a job was very difficult.
