Arts Therapy Programme "Creative Arts Workshop"

In August and November last year, seven professional art therapists from Expressive Arts Therapists Association Hong Kong (EATAHK) volunteered to spend the weekends at Sunbeam Children's Village, to bring the Creative Arts Workshops for the Sunbeam children, boarders and staff.  
Sponsored by Linklaters, the project brings arts knowledge and skills to the children and staff, to help them review and express their emotions through the sense of art.  The volunteers kindly contributed their own time to design the programme, and pledged to make a quarterly visits to further develop the programme.   The feedback from the two workshops has been very positive and encouraging from both children and staff. Clearly all have benefited greatly from these expressive arts sessions.

We sincerely thank Linklaters and EATAHK for their valuable worthwhile contributions. 
 

 

In Memory of mr. stanley lau chin ho, sbs,mh,jp

The news of Mr Stanley Lau’s death on 12th June shocked the entire Hong Kong.  Only the day before he was still performing a public service, one of many which he selflessly dedicated for both government and industry.

In memory of Mr. Lau his family has turned their grief into a beacon of hope for disadvantaged children in China.  They requested friends to make donations to Sunbeam Children’s Foundation, an orphanage in Guangdong Province, in lieu of flowers.

On 10th December 2016, the late Mr. Stanley Lau’s sons, Gary and Ronald installed a plaque at Sunbeam Children’s Village in memory of their father.   Sunbeam children show appreciation and gratitude for their donation.

We are very grateful to Mr. Lau’s family.
