REGIONAL COMMUNITY STORY

Otis volunteers brighten days and enrich lives. Since 2005, Otis Hong Kong has joined forces with the Hong Kong Christian Service (HKCS) to unveil the “Elderly Caring Ambassador” campaign, organizing more than 11 community programs. More than 500 Otis employees and their families have volunteered for this program, contributing more than 1,440 volunteer hours to serve 450 single elderly people in need of care and love.
The “Elderly Caring Ambassador” targets the elderly living alone in Sham Shui Po. This program comprises a series of visits to assist the elderly with regular household cleaning and furnishing, and other activities. According to statistics, approximately 70,000 elderly people live on their own in Hong Kong, most of them living with help from the Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) or on their meager savings. Under such circumstances, these elderly people very often find themselves in need of help both materially and mentally.
From one-day excursions to the Hong Kong Wetland Park to a Mid-Autumn Festival, the Otis Hong Kong team is enriching the lives. The team’s contributions have included:
  • Regular visits and cleaning days
  • An elderly household safety survey
  • A door gate painting day
  • An elderly sports day Lunch parties
  • Holiday visits and gift packs
According to Cheung Yue, general manager, Elderly and Health Core Service of HKCS, Otis’ contributions have had a strong and positive impact in providing expanded assistance to the elderly
“Combined with Otis’ sponsorship and the efforts of its volunteer team, we are able to serve single elderly people in Shum Shui Pao in a better, more extensive way,” Yue said. “These elderly people are delighted to meet Otis’ volunteers, who bring them care and love.”
