紅樓夢親子嘉年華 全民齊心集善款、建大樓

擴建人道平台 延續不朽人道使命


(香港•2011年10月8日)為進一步推展人道工作及配合香港政府的社區發展計劃,香港紅十字會現正積極籌劃在西九龍區重建新總部大樓,預計於2014年可投入服務。整項計劃約需港幣4億元的款項,為了讓社會大眾能參與這項重要計劃,香港紅十字會特意於2011年10月8日假銅鑼灣維多利亞公園舉行「紅樓夢親子嘉年華」,透過攤位遊戲、工作坊、音樂表演、布偶劇場、大型充氣遊戲等為重建計劃籌募經費,同時亦為家長們提供一個平台,從小教育孩子認識人道工作,培養其善心,也讓市民大?更了解香港紅十字會各項服務。「紅樓夢親子嘉年華」的所有收益將全數用於新總部大樓重建計劃。


「紅樓夢親子嘉年華」的揭幕禮首先由香港紅十字會順利宿舍以鼓樂演奏《將軍令》揭開序幕,並由兩位主禮嘉賓香港紅十字會會長曾鮑笑薇女士及社會福利署署長聶德權太平紳士先後致辭。香港紅十字會會長曾鮑笑薇女士致歡迎辭時表示:「《紅樓夢》是我國文學巨著,同時,『紅、樓、夢』也是香港紅十字會多年來的心願。『紅』代表香港紅十字會;『樓』是一站式服務大樓;『夢』是夢想。『紅樓夢』就是指香港紅十字會興建一站式服務大樓的夢想,為更多有需要人士提供服務。希望大家鼎力支持,一同參與,使我們多年來的夢想早日實現。」


揭幕儀式由嘉年華大使「紅紅」及「藍藍」陪同主禮嘉賓及主禮團進行,當中包括香港紅十字會會長曾鮑笑薇女士、社會福利署署長聶德權太平紳士、香港紅十字會副主席林胡秀霞女士、香港紅十字會副主席羅榮生先生、香港紅十字會總監兼新總部大樓籌款委員會主席胡郭秀萍女士、「紅樓夢親子嘉年華」籌委會主席兼香港紅十字會新總部大樓籌款委員會成員鄒秉基先生,以及香港紅十字會新總部大樓籌款委員會成員簡美蓮博士。嘉賓們分別以不同的遊戲圖像,帶出嘉年華會內各個遊戲的特徵及嘉賓寄語,讓現場觀眾對當日活動內容及背後意義有更深認識。眾人大合照後,揭幕禮在一片掌聲中結束,亦意味著嘉年華會正式開始。「紅樓夢親子嘉年華」除了旨在為香港紅十字會總部大樓重建計劃籌款外,亦希望藉此宣揚紅十字會的人道精神,實踐香港紅十字會「保護生命、關懷傷困、維護尊嚴」的使命。


香港紅十字會新總部大樓籌款委員會主席兼香港紅十字會總監胡郭秀萍女士表示:「今天的『紅樓夢親子嘉年華』籌款活動,由開始籌劃至近期的宣傳,均得到社會各界的鼎力支持,截止活動舉行前夕,本會已籌得港幣四十多萬元善款,足見大家對香港紅十字會服務的支持和認同,而這份無間的鼓勵和愛戴亦成為了我們努力不懈地提供人道服務的原動力,讓我們有勇氣及毅力去擴展人道平台,興建新的總部大樓。」

胡總監續說,「紅樓夢親子嘉年華得以順利舉行,實有賴多個贊助機構的全力支持,包括銀贊助三昌好好辦館有限公司、痚禰業地產集團及Mr Hans Michael Jebsen,銅贊助Brunch Club及黃景熙先生,新城電台全力支持及多個支持伙伴熱心贊助攤位禮品及義工膳食。同時亦特別鳴謝各個表演團體的義務演出,以及台前幕後300多名機構義工及紅十字會各服務單位的義工團隊的協助和付出,一同延續紅十字會不朽的人道使命。

關於香港紅十字會新總部大樓重建計劃

香港紅十字會於1950年創立,經過60年的努力,現已發展成廣為市民認同和信賴的人道平台。隨?機構的發展以及提供的人道服務愈見擴展,現時大樓有限空間未能配合發展需要,加上香港政府對本會總部現址另有其他土地規劃用途,因此,本會將遷往西九龍海庭道重建總部大樓。新總部大樓高11層,將設有捐血中心、急救及健康護理訓練中心、紅十字會制服團隊地區中心、義工發展及活動中心、人道教育中心、本地及海外賑災物資處理中心,以及海外緊急救援資源中心,預計於2014年可投入服務,這一站式人道服務平台將更為完善,惠澤本港、內地,以至全球更多有需要人士。歡迎登入以下網站了解更多有關「香港紅十字會總部大樓重建計劃」的資料:www.redcross.org.hk/web/newheadquarters

Hong Kong Red Cross Parent-child Fun Day

Joint effort across the community to establish new headquarters building

Extension of humanitarian mission via expansion of humanitarian platform


(Hong Kong, 8th October, 2011) To expand its humanitarian services and to cater the community development plan of the Government, the Hong Kong Red Cross (HKRC) is planning to relocate its headquarters to the West Kowloon Reclamation Area, and is expected to be completed in 2014. Estimated to cost nearly HK$400 million, the redevelopment project – a dream for many generations of the HKRC to expand its “Humanitarian Platform” – hinges on public support. To engage the public in this significant project, the HKRC is holding a Parent-child Fun Day at Victoria Park, Causeway Bay, on 8th October 2011. Game booths, workshops, music shows, puppet theatre and large-scale bouncy were staged to raise funds for the relocation project, at the same time giving parents a platform to educate their children about humanitarian work and cultivate compassion in the young. It also enabled the community to understand more about the services provided by the HKRC. All proceeds raised from the HKRC Parent-child Fun Day will be used to support the new headquarters redevelopment project.


The unveiling ceremony of the Parent-child Fun Day was kicked off by a drum performance of “General’s Command” by the HKRC Shun Lee Hostel. Opening remark by Mrs Selina Tsang, President of Hong Kong Red Cross was followed by speech from Mr Patrick Nip Tak Kuen, JP, Director of Social Welfare. Shared by Mrs Selina Tsang in her speech, “The Parent-child Fun Day is one of the highlighted fundraising events for the New Headquarters Redevelopment Project which is made to fulfill the dream of Hong Kong Red Cross to establish a one-stop humanitarian centre, and to serve more people with special needs. Your support means a lot to us and more importantly, your participation will certainly help us to realize our dream.”


The ceremony is officiated by Mrs Selina Tsang, President of Hong Kong Red Cross, Mr Patrick Nip, JP, Director of Social Welfare, Mrs Patricia S H Ling, MH, JP, Deputy Chairman of Hong Kong Red Cross, Mr Vincent W S Lo, BBS, JP, Deputy Chairman of Hong Kong Red Cross, Lady Wu, JP, Director of Hong Kong Red Cross and Chairperson of the Fundraising Committee for the New HKRC Headquarters Redevelopment Project, Mr Alan Chow, Chairman of the “Parent-child Fun Day” Organizing Committee and member of the Fundraising Committee for the New HKRC Headquarters Redevelopment Project, and Dr Hayley M L Kan, member of the Fundraising Committee for the New HKRC Headquarters Redevelopment Project; accompanied by carnival ambassadors “Little Red” and “Little Blue” on stage. To give the audience a general idea about the activities on the day, each guest revealed the features and implications of a game in the carnival by showing a picture of the respective game. Group photos brought the unveiling ceremony to an end in great applause, while the carnival officially commenced. In addition to raising funds for the relocation project, the HKRC Parent-child Day also served as a channel to promote the organization’s humanitarian spirit dedicating to “Protect human life, Care for the health of the vulnerable, Respect human dignity”.


Lady Wu also conveys heartfelt thanks to sponsors for the smooth running of the programmes, including Goodwell Sam Cheong Geocery Co.,Ltd., Henderson Land Development Co. Ltd. and Mr Hans Michael Jebsen as Silver Sponsors; Brunch Club and 黃景熙先生 as Bronze Sponsors; Metro Broadcast Corporation Limited for rendering full support; and many other supporting partners in sponsoring gifts for booth games and food for volunteers.

Introduction to The Hong Kong Red Cross Headquarters Redevelopment Project

In 1950, the HKRC was formed to give them hope in the midst of hard times. With 60 years’ of effort, the HKRC is now a publicly recognized and reliable organization. However, with the development of the organization and expansion of its humanitarian services, the headquarters’ space is already outgrown. Moreover, the government has rezoned the land where the current headquarters located for other uses. With the need to reclaim the land, the HKRC’s headquarters will be rebuilt in the West Kowloon Reclamation Area. The 11-storey new complex is planned to be completed in 2014, housing a blood collection centre, a first-aid & health training centre, a Red Cross Youth uniformed group regional centre, a volunteer development and activities centre, a humanitarian education centre, handling centres for overseas and local disaster relief materials, as well as a resource centre for the future Health Emergency Response Unit. Bringing office facilities and all service units under one roof, this one-stop humanitarian base will facilitate the HKRC to serve more people of the local, Mainland as well as overseas communities.
