Mother’s Choice 30th Anniversary Walkathon

We hope you will join us at our Families Walking For Families: Mother’s Choice 30th Anniversary Walkathon! This year, we are celebrating 30 years of changing life stories at the Walkathon on Sunday, 12th November 2017. For 30 years, we have joined hands with our community to give hope, with the vision to see every child in a loving family.

 

Our Walkathon is a celebration of family! Every family is unique – it is love and commitment, not just blood, which defines a family. The Walkathon is a glimpse of a Hong Kong we long to see – one where children are in loving families of all shapes and sizes come together to support one another.

 

When you walk with us and fundraise on our behalf, you help us to raise much needed funds to support our work in building families through our five key services.

Mother’s Choice is a local charity serving the many children without families and pregnant teenagers in Hong Kong. We join hands with our community to give hope and change the life stories of vulnerable girls and babies. Our vision is to see every child in a loving family.

What we do

For Children

When a child comes to us, we provide high quality loving and temporary care with early intervention support through our Child Care Home, Project Bridge, or Foster Care Services. We are a voice for every child to be in a safe, loving, and permanent family as soon as possible. We believe every child is special and it takes a village to raise a child.

For Youth

When a girl comes to our Pregnant Girls Services, we love and welcome her without judgement, provide information to show her she has choices, build a supportive network around her, and give her hope to face her future. We deliver child protection and comprehensive sexuality education workshops through our Community Education team.

For Families

We believe that every family needs a supportive community in order to thrive. We run workshops, trainings, and reunions for foster and adoptive families to support them in the unique journey of parenting through our Foster Care Services and Adoption Services, and we identify and wrap around struggling birth families to support them.
