    Do you want to help our research into the dangers posed to Chinese white dolphin from heavy marine traffic? Do you want to play a part in protecting their core habitat? We have launched a crowdfunding appeal to help us deploy nine hydrophones from April 2018. The underwater microphones will be placed around Tai O and nearby waters, one of the dolphins remaining core habitats, with the data gathered helping our work to lobby the government for more marine protected areas. There are only 47 Chinese white dolphins remaining in Hong Kong western waters. Habitat destruction from coastal reclamation and busy marine traffic are the top two threats. Make a difference for this iconic species today. *The same campaign has also been launched on a WWF-Hong Kong minisite.

    "Don' t Qua" Charity Action is our annual featured event which will be held during July & August, the traditional Chinese "Summer Solstice” , to help reduce body heat and wipe away the tears and sorrow of distressed elderlies. “Dong Qua” is winter melon in Chinese. "Qua” is a Cantonese homonym of “Die", thus "Don't die". During the hottest period of the year, we will organise a flagship volunteer programme including home visits and serving “Don' t Qua Charity Luncheon” for old folks. The event not only aims to make the elderly feel loved and help them overcome feelings of despair, but also raise society's awareness of elderly suicide prevention. On average, one elderly person dies by suicide in Hong Kong every day. Over the past 23 years, SPS has been striving to serve emotionally distressed and suicidal elderlies. Your generous support will definitely allow SPS to sustain and develop better services for the needy. By donation of $300, you can sponsor an elderly to join the Don't Qua Charity Luncheon on 17 July!

  • To celebrate Baxter’s 35th anniversary, we are launching a #TakeYourToxins campaign - which will start on April 11th! Healthy kidneys filter and remove excess fluid and toxins from blood and turn it into urine. Kidney failure, also called end-stage renal disease (ESRD), is the last stage of chronic kidney disease and happens when kidneys operates at less than 5-10% of normal function and dangerous toxins build up in the bloodstream. At this stage, the patient can only survive with dialysis or a kidney transplant. Yet every day, we take for granted that our kidneys are silently working to rid our body of toxins while patients with kidney failure do not enjoy the same freedom. This campaign aims to highlight the issue of kidney failure by comparing our daily trash disposal with the toxins that patients carry in their bodies until they undergo daily treatment at night. Before Automated Peritoneal Dialysis (APD) treatments, many patients had to carry a solution bag and needed four or more dialysis exchanges a day. A group of Baxter employees will initiate the campaign and carry a small plastic bag to fill it with ALL the accumulated trash. Then they will upload to social media pages with #TakeYourToxins – to mark the start/end of the challenge. We’re making it fun and impactful by taking the waterproof plastic bag everywhere we go, including places where we wouldn’t normally bring a bag! The donation will end by June 14th. We aim to link this movement back to education and awareness around kidney illness and treatments – and of course, mobilizing our connections to raise money for a worthy cause. Be sure to share this with your friends and family and help donate to this page! Automated Peritoneal Dialysis (APD) offers the patient the option of an effective home modality of renal replacement therapy, encourages self-autonomy, and supports optimal quality of life - designed for patients that refuse to let kidney diseases compromise their lives, careers, social life, travels, relationships, or most importantly stand in the way of achieving their dreams.

    Judith Akokomebe, a 19-year old Nigerian student, was walking to church, in June 2017, when acid was viciously thrown at her. The highly corrosive chemical substance caused immense, searing pain as it melted the skin on her face, chest and arms, causing third degree burns. Judith’s left eye has been severely damaged and she is close to becoming blind. Her left ear has been melted away. Her physical scars are raw and extensive. She knows that her road to recovery is a long, arduous one but Judith remains positive. She has taken the step to forgive her perpetrator, only wanting to finish her studies so as to fulfill her dream of becoming a pharmacist. About the organisation: Back to Job’s main goal is to help acid attack survivors resume a normal life by creating opportunities for employment and education. Made possible through online volunteering support from United Nations Volunteers and Morobe Development Foundation Inc., we are a team of volunteers driven to create a brighter future for acid attack survivors globally.

    Hi I’m Michaela Mok, a fresh graduate from Good Hope School. I was first associated with SKSFF two years ago when I had to propose and carry out an internal activity at school to prove my worth in order to join my school’s student council. I ended up calling it “Pause for Paws” (great title I know), an awareness campaign for local stray dogs. Narelle was nice enough to arrange to bring pups and a few dogs to school and this made the event interactive and really got the message across students. After successfully earning my spot on the student council, I went back a couple times to see my furry friends. My mom, Linda Jackson, now an active volunteer at SKSFF got me involved in a few of their activities, including face-painting, fundraising, shaking buckets etc. Last year, the school suggested I enter a local competition called “Community Leaders of Tomorrow” where funds were given to me and my partner to carry out an activity for a charity of our choice. Without hestitation, we went straight back to Narelle and SKSFF to organise Pause for Paws version 2.0, where we went to shake buckets and raise awareness outside the Rugby Sevens. This event brought both students and teachers together as well as the community and even got the attention of the Education Bureau who later invited us to give a lecture about our experience to professors and students alike at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Though we did not win CLT, we were rewarded with the Most Popular Project Award. Upon finishing my public exams and graduating, I received a call about Pause for Paws creating buzz within the Education Bureau and that they would like my partner and I to appear on a television programme about student-led projects in collaboration with RTHK. Needless to say, SKSFF has opened a series of doors in my life, leading me to different opportunities and for that I am forever grateful. Among all the events, it puts a smile on my face to see our community willingly come together to pitch in to help our furry friends. Each dollar spent on the dogs is put to good use with medical care, food and maintenance, all ensuring a better life for the dogs, as said in SKSFF’s motto. During my few visits to the kennel, I have grown to love each of the 106 dogs there, understanding their back stories and personalities. I hope tonight’s event with help of the fringebacker can provide enough assistance to the shelter to keep making a difference, one canine at a time.

Hong Kong Trio to study MA in Dance at London Contemporary Dance School Culture & Art

Hong Kong Trio to study MA in Dance at London Contemporary Dance School

Project by The Devisers Company

The trio, namely Ghost, Shum and John, has been the only three Asians accepted into the Master of Arts programme at LCDS this year. They met each other in 2017 and quickly decided to collaborate and formed the crew, The Devisers Company. The crew has so far released three dance videos, performed in two official occasions and won a championship in Kangaroo Cup (Hong Kong) 2017 Lyrical/Contemporary. The company has been exploring and devising new methods and practice in dance to express and tell stories, in order to be free in dance and true to themselves. Now, the three are stepping into the next stage and expand their enthusiasm for dance to the field of professionals.

Do you want to help our research into the dangers posed to Chinese white dolphin from heavy marine traffic? Do you want to play a part in protecting their core habitat? We have launched a crowdfunding appeal to help us deploy nine hydrophones from April 2018. The underwater microphones will be placed around Tai O and nearby waters, one of the dolphins remaining core habitats, with the data gathered helping our work to lobby the government for more marine protected areas. There are only 47 Chinese white dolphins remaining in Hong Kong western waters. Habitat destruction from coastal reclamation and busy marine traffic are the top two threats. Make a difference for this iconic species today. *The same campaign has also been launched on a WWF-Hong Kong minisite.

"Don' t Qua" Charity Action is our annual featured event which will be held during July & August, the traditional Chinese "Summer Solstice” , to help reduce body heat and wipe away the tears and sorrow of distressed elderlies. “Dong Qua” is winter melon in Chinese. "Qua” is a Cantonese homonym of “Die", thus "Don't die". During the hottest period of the year, we will organise a flagship volunteer programme including home visits and serving “Don' t Qua Charity Luncheon” for old folks. The event not only aims to make the elderly feel loved and help them overcome feelings of despair, but also raise society's awareness of elderly suicide prevention. On average, one elderly person dies by suicide in Hong Kong every day. Over the past 23 years, SPS has been striving to serve emotionally distressed and suicidal elderlies. Your generous support will definitely allow SPS to sustain and develop better services for the needy. By donation of $300, you can sponsor an elderly to join the Don't Qua Charity Luncheon on 17 July!

To celebrate Baxter’s 35th anniversary, we are launching a #TakeYourToxins campaign - which will start on April 11th! Healthy kidneys filter and remove excess fluid and toxins from blood and turn it into urine. Kidney failure, also called end-stage renal disease (ESRD), is the last stage of chronic kidney disease and happens when kidneys operates at less than 5-10% of normal function and dangerous toxins build up in the bloodstream. At this stage, the patient can only survive with dialysis or a kidney transplant. Yet every day, we take for granted that our kidneys are silently working to rid our body of toxins while patients with kidney failure do not enjoy the same freedom. This campaign aims to highlight the issue of kidney failure by comparing our daily trash disposal with the toxins that patients carry in their bodies until they undergo daily treatment at night. Before Automated Peritoneal Dialysis (APD) treatments, many patients had to carry a solution bag and needed four or more dialysis exchanges a day. A group of Baxter employees will initiate the campaign and carry a small plastic bag to fill it with ALL the accumulated trash. Then they will upload to social media pages with #TakeYourToxins – to mark the start/end of the challenge. We’re making it fun and impactful by taking the waterproof plastic bag everywhere we go, including places where we wouldn’t normally bring a bag! The donation will end by June 14th. We aim to link this movement back to education and awareness around kidney illness and treatments – and of course, mobilizing our connections to raise money for a worthy cause. Be sure to share this with your friends and family and help donate to this page! Automated Peritoneal Dialysis (APD) offers the patient the option of an effective home modality of renal replacement therapy, encourages self-autonomy, and supports optimal quality of life - designed for patients that refuse to let kidney diseases compromise their lives, careers, social life, travels, relationships, or most importantly stand in the way of achieving their dreams.

Judith Akokomebe, a 19-year old Nigerian student, was walking to church, in June 2017, when acid was viciously thrown at her. The highly corrosive chemical substance caused immense, searing pain as it melted the skin on her face, chest and arms, causing third degree burns. Judith’s left eye has been severely damaged and she is close to becoming blind. Her left ear has been melted away. Her physical scars are raw and extensive. She knows that her road to recovery is a long, arduous one but Judith remains positive. She has taken the step to forgive her perpetrator, only wanting to finish her studies so as to fulfill her dream of becoming a pharmacist. About the organisation: Back to Job’s main goal is to help acid attack survivors resume a normal life by creating opportunities for employment and education. Made possible through online volunteering support from United Nations Volunteers and Morobe Development Foundation Inc., we are a team of volunteers driven to create a brighter future for acid attack survivors globally.

Hi I’m Michaela Mok, a fresh graduate from Good Hope School. I was first associated with SKSFF two years ago when I had to propose and carry out an internal activity at school to prove my worth in order to join my school’s student council. I ended up calling it “Pause for Paws” (great title I know), an awareness campaign for local stray dogs. Narelle was nice enough to arrange to bring pups and a few dogs to school and this made the event interactive and really got the message across students. After successfully earning my spot on the student council, I went back a couple times to see my furry friends. My mom, Linda Jackson, now an active volunteer at SKSFF got me involved in a few of their activities, including face-painting, fundraising, shaking buckets etc. Last year, the school suggested I enter a local competition called “Community Leaders of Tomorrow” where funds were given to me and my partner to carry out an activity for a charity of our choice. Without hestitation, we went straight back to Narelle and SKSFF to organise Pause for Paws version 2.0, where we went to shake buckets and raise awareness outside the Rugby Sevens. This event brought both students and teachers together as well as the community and even got the attention of the Education Bureau who later invited us to give a lecture about our experience to professors and students alike at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Though we did not win CLT, we were rewarded with the Most Popular Project Award. Upon finishing my public exams and graduating, I received a call about Pause for Paws creating buzz within the Education Bureau and that they would like my partner and I to appear on a television programme about student-led projects in collaboration with RTHK. Needless to say, SKSFF has opened a series of doors in my life, leading me to different opportunities and for that I am forever grateful. Among all the events, it puts a smile on my face to see our community willingly come together to pitch in to help our furry friends. Each dollar spent on the dogs is put to good use with medical care, food and maintenance, all ensuring a better life for the dogs, as said in SKSFF’s motto. During my few visits to the kennel, I have grown to love each of the 106 dogs there, understanding their back stories and personalities. I hope tonight’s event with help of the fringebacker can provide enough assistance to the shelter to keep making a difference, one canine at a time.
