Manulife ‘Go Paperless’ Education Aid Program

Manulife ‘Go Paperless’ Education Aid Program【A single action brings hope to the next generation】



Since e-learning has become widespread and important, most schools require their students to be equipped with tablet computers for classes and homework. Not all families, however, can afford this additional expense. 

Thanks to the generous support of Manulife Hong Kong from now until 30 June 2020, when Manulife MPF members opt for e-Statement and e-Notice services, Manulife will donate iPads to local primary schools through St. James’ Settlement to provide under-resourced students with better e-learning opportunities. The more of Manulife MPF members who opt for e-services, the more under-resourced students who will benefit. Manulife has pledged to donate 400 iPads if the number of opt-ins reaches 15,000.

If you are a Manulife MPF member, please act now: https://bit.ly/2xaeNCs

Don’t miss this opportunity to do something for our planet and under-resourced students!

St. James’ Settlement Valentine’s Rose Charity Sale 2020
In order to reduce the spread of disease in the community and protect the safety of our volunteers, St. James’ Settlement Valentine’s Rose Charity Sale 2020  at Cityplaza from 10 to 14 Feb 2020 will be cancelled.
 All proceeds after deducting costs will support Grant-in-aid Brightens Children’s Lives Service of St. James’ Settlement to equip disadvantaged children with diverse learning resources and experiential opportunities.  Please show your love while warming the hearts of the needy.

Roses are made of natural leaves with string of lights. Attached with a ‘love’ tag, the rose was packed in a pearl white box in this season of love and romance. The roses are once again designed, sourced and produced by the St. James’ Settlement Jockey Club Endeavour Workshop + Albert Wu Rainbow Workshop. This provided employment to our members of rehabilitation services as well.

**Special arrangment for volunteers**
Hong Kong has confirmed some cases of the Wuhan coronavirus lately. In order to reduce the spread of disease in the community and protect the safety of our volunteers, volunteer service at the charity sale will be cancelled this year. We understand that parents and children would like to join the event in an alternative way. In view of this we cordially invite those who have signed up for volunteers to become our Fundraising Little Angel for participating the charity sale online. Only 5 steps would mean a lot to us!

Best Practice Award in Social Welfare 2019
Organized by The Hong Kong Council of Social Service, the Best Practice Awards in Social Welfare recognizes the contributions of stakeholders in the social welfare sector. The theme for 2019 is “Innovation and Technological Application, a Milestone of Social Service Progression”, and FOOD-CO was honoured to receive the Gold Award. Funded by the SIE Fund, FOOD-CO is the first IT platform for food support service in Hong Kong which facilitates food donation in a more efficient way with advancement in technology and data analysis.
 
In addition, the pre-cooked soft diet Graceful Meal designed by our team of chefs and dietitians for frail individuals with swallowing difficulties was awarded with Best Practice Award. In 2017, the team launched the home-made delicate soft diet – Graceful Meal to replace minced and pureed meals with a new and delicious dining experience to people with swallowing or masticating difficulties at home. They can now enjoy the meals with dignity, while their carers’ stresses are released as well.
