How the employee got involved and why

Aiming to connect people with different walks of life, from professionals to minorities of the society, to discover the power of creative arts and embrace our differences; to facilitate people in self-understanding and personal growth through Expressive Arts; to provide a platform for the Expressive Arts Therapy professionals to exchange their expertise and talents; to serve the general public by promoting Expressive Arts and Psycho Education in communities.
What work does the employee do for charity
I have founded a society, together with two other Expressive Arts Therapists, named "Hub for Expressive Arts Therapy" ("the Hub") in December 2021, aiming to adopt our skills of Expressive Arts Therapy and to provide psychotherapeutic services to the community. We have established partnership with the University of Hong Kong (HKU), the Polytechnic University of Hong Kong (PolyU) and the Ebenezer Care and Attention Home ("the Ebenezer) for community services.
During the peak of pandemic in HK (March - May 2022), no visitors are allowed to the elder home, so "the Hub" arranged on-line Expressive Arts group sessions for the elderly residents in "the Ebenezer" in order to provide mental support to the participants. Moreover, "the Hub" also has collaborated with the HKU and been providing face-to-face Expressive Arts therapeutic sessions in "the Ebenezer" since July 2022.
