迎 難 而 上

香港經歷了動盪不安的一年,社會充滿了各樣的矛盾,無論是港人之間,還是中港之間,各式的爭論無日無之。這使社會服務有舉步為艱的感覺,另一方面正因這些問題的湧現,更顯得社會服務的重要,讓撕裂的社會仍覺有溫情。

政府因應社會上不斷湧現的問題和需要,推出不同的政策,無論是老人、貧窮、青年就業和幼兒教育問題,好像是回應問題,但卻令業界疲於奔命。宣道會社會服務只是中小形的服務機構,面對這些要求也只有迎難而上,力求做到政府要求,更盼望是能幫到有需要的人仕。

長者服務方面我們繼續原有正在推動的工作,如宣健服務、好友益智計劃等,這些計劃正回應長者們的需要而推出的。而幼兒服務方面因應教育局提出的改革計劃,我們也努力的預備,讓幼兒和家長得到最佳的服務。而整個機構也面對社署提出的「最佳執行指引」計劃而需要作出回應和改動,使我們在人手不足的情況下卻要面對大量的工作,同工們只有迎難而上,努力的達到要求。

宣道會社會服務本著基督愛人的精神去服務社群,我們願意成為一個以人為本的服務機溝,幫助有需要的人,特別一些弱勢社群,我們可預見必定有很多困難,但我們願意迎難而上,讓有需要的人得著幫助。

Move Forward in the midst of Challenges

It was a year of uproars in Hong Kong. The society was full of conflicts among Hong-Kongers and in between China and Hong Kong. Arguments were unceasing. On one hand, all these made social services seem harder to step forward. On the other hand, these issues revealed the importance of social services, which could give warmth to this wounded society.

The Government launched different policies in regard to issues and needs cried out from the society, which included elderly, poverty, employments of young people and early-childhood education issues. The Government seemed to respond to the problems, but the industry was tired of working them all out. C & M A is just a small medium sized organization. It was not easy for us to respond to all these demands and to meet the Government's criteria on our endeavor basis. Despite all these challenges and difficulties, it is our heart to help those in need at the end.

We will keep running our current elderly services, such as physiotherapy service and Good Companion scheme, etc. These were launched according to the needs of the elderly. We were also preparing hard for a revised plan for our children service according to Education Bureau, so that our children and parents could receive the best service. Meanwhile, owing to Social Welfare Department's Best Practice Manual, our organization had to make response and changes accordingly. We got all our hands full but with a shortage of manpower. Our staff gave their best and together moved forward in the midst of all these challenges.

C & M A Social Service served the community based on the love of Christ. We are so willing to be a people-oriented organization to help the needy, especially the deprived group. We can foresee that there will still be many difficulties, yet we will put our shoulders to the wheel such that the needy can be reached.
