On 19 December 2015, 20 volunteers from Deacons, led by Senior Partner Lilian Chiang, collaborated with Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) to support Operation Santa Claus. The aim was to spread warmth and care to children with intellectual disabilities from the Hong Kong Down Syndrome Association (HKDSA) during the festive season.
Our volunteers and the children arrived early in the morning at Tuen Mun Public Riding School. The event started with Lilian Chiang delivering a welcome message to all participants. It was followed by a thank you from Apollo Ng, Vice Chairman of Rehab Sub Committee of RDA and Maggie Yeung, Director of HKDSA.
Lilian was also interviewed by the SCMP on the same day: the resulting coverage is available here. Click here to learn more Operation Santa Claus, and below to learn more about Riding for KIDSmas:
