SHKP volunteers use construction expertise to help seniors

2013-05-21

Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP) Building Homes with Heart Caring Initiative encourages staff to use their professional skills to do basic household decoration for the underprivileged living in public housing to promote a caring community. Since it was founded ten years ago, the SHKP Volunteer Team has been helping elderly public housing tenants affected by urban redevelopment. The volunteers recently provided relocation assistance and did basic new home decoration for elderly being affected by the redevelopment of Pak Tin Estate and helped them to integrate into the community.

The volunteers helped nearly 100 households of senior singles or couples displaced by the redevelopment of Pak Tin Estate move to Shek Kip Mei Estate. SHKP Volunteer Team Chief Leader Michelle Leung, Sun Hung Kai Real Estate Agency General Manager (Leasing) Fiona Chung, Kai Shing Management Services General Manager Irene Wai and Sun Hung Kai Real Estate Agency Assistant General Manager (Leasing) Evelyn Suen joined staff volunteers to inspect the new flats, tile floors and install lights for the elderly. They also visited seniors who had already moved to new homes to see how they were making out.

The Volunteer Team has helped relocate elderly households affected by the redevelopments of Pak Tin Estate, Tung Tau Estate, Shek Kip Mei Estate, So Uk Estate and Ngau Tau Kok Lower Estate. They pay visits before and after moves and hold social events to help the seniors settle into the neighbourhood. Volunteers also use their expertise in engineering, construction and property management to assist the seniors choose, inspect, decorate and clean their new homes, in the hope of helping them to start a new life on all fronts.
