SHKP Rainbow with KIDS
Supporting Children Encountered Family Crisis
Background & Objectives
With the continuous support by Sun Hung Kai Properties Limited, The Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS) has launched SHKP Rainbow with KIDS since 2017. The project has been supporting more than 600 children and youth who have undergone traumatic family crises. It provides opportunities for them to naturally express their feelings, relieve psychological stress and re-build their confidence so as to face the crises with a positive attitude and support. The professionals assist the parents to maintain a good connection and communication with their children, thus, they can face the challenges together.
This year, 4 NGOs with rich experience in serving the children in family crises, including Baptist Oi Kwan Social Service, Harmony House, The Hong Kong Catholic Marriage Advisory Council and Hong Kong Single Parents Association participated to render professional counseling and support services for about 205 children. The project will commence in January 2020 for 1 to 1.5 years.
