Care the needy

Hans Andersen Club cares for the minority in the community. About some 50 years ago, HAC started to serve the people living in the squatter area, refugee camps and later on the outlying islands in Hong Kong. We cherish every opportunity to provide needy children with suitable services.


Innovative Services

In the last few decades, HAC launched various innovative services to meet the need of families and children. For example, the Cyber learning centre located in Tai O Centre helped the inhabitants to use computers as a means to link up with the outside world. In recent years, HAC provides creative storytelling services to enhance harmony among families.


Outstanding Partnership

HAC received three awards related to the outstanding partnership granted by Hong Kong Council of Social Services in the past five years. It showed the recognition among the social service and commercial sectors in Hong Kong.
