【Stronger Together HK - Cheung Ho-ching, Civil Aid Service】
Pulled down to the depths of the valley, one would ask ‘What’s next?’
Ask the Civil Aid Service’s Cheung Ho-ching and he would tell you, “we will bounce right back, as long as the people of Hong Kong stick together”.
CAS is an auxiliary emergency service. Cheung himself is a volunteer working at the Jao Tsung-I Academy quarantine centre, helping the Duty Officer with the centre’s daily operations. Cheung told us that all the volunteers there, while mindful, are not bogged down by fears of infection. The volunteers just want to contribute, play a part and do a little something to help.
Forever an optimist, Cheung is not overly bothered about the adverse impact of the epidemic. Rather, he is heartened by the selflessness and compassion of Hong Kong people during such trying times. Unsolicited, many go out of their way to co-ordinate donations, distribute and hand out face masks, hand sanitisers... He can’t help being impressed.
Our hats off to our volunteers! Our thanks to each of you who join us in the fight against the virus!
