District matter (For April)
It is the 10th month of RY2021-22. The countdown is on. It’s just months to go, and the party mood is already in the air here. I sincerely long for the real celebration for having a fruitful Serve to Change Lives year.
With the further relaxation of social distancing measures, District events started resuming. It’s a relief that the PI Seminar 2.0, 62nd District Conference and RYLA camp can be hosted physically by the end of May and early June.
Disaster Relief Fund
We continued our work on helping the low income of Hong Kong’s population. Thank you Area 1 in Macau for their generosity. Together with the Disaster Relief Fund, a total expenditure of HKD112,000 was allocated to “友商有糧”, a campaign partnering with the Neighbourhood Advice-Action Council, hoping to help the underprivileged in Hong Kong.
Area 7 also delivered the joint project “健康傳耆顯愛心” in April. With the network of Neighbourhood Advice-Action Council, the two hosting clubs, Rotary Club of Dragon Hong Kong and Rotary Club of Homantin Hill, got reach to elderly who are living at a relatively remote area. A total expenditure of HKD131,000 was allocated to provide food and epidemic prevention supplies for over 400 elderly.
PoA Photo/ Video Competition
The People of Action Photo/ Video Competition came to an end. The competition aims to urge Rotarians to capture action photos showing how they help the community, highlighting what we can achieve. Photos taken during service projects can gain extensive exposure on websites and in social media. Thank you all participating Clubs for your support. Whether or not you are the winner, you are all awarded with valuable memory. The photos and videos illustrate that we are all People of Action!
Charity Sale for Breast Cancer Patients_RC Bayview Sunshine
The Kick Off Ceremony of “絲絲暖我心”, a campaign partnering with Global Chinese Breast Cancer Organizations Alliance(GCBOCA) was held at the GCBOCA centre on 15 April 2022. Rotary Club of Bayview Sunshine manufactured silk scarves for charity sale. The fund raised will be used for purchasing medical devices to relieve or eliminate symptoms associated with post breast surgery complications for breast cancer patients and breast cancer survivors.
COVID-19 Rehabilitation Programme on Elderly
Joined hands with three service partners, Rotary Club of City Northwest Hong Kong, sponsored the COVID-19 Rehabilitation Programme on Elderly, targeting to rehabilitate and follow up with elderly aging over 55 who recovered from Covid-19. All participants regained strength after receiving a two-month rehabilitation training. It is very encouraging to hear the result.
Marching in to the year of Imagine Rotary
While the current District team is now wrapping up their work, the incoming District Governor Norman Lee and his team are preparing for the next year’s theme of “Imagine Rotary”. Mongolia PETS and PETS 2 accomplished successfully on 9-10 April and 23 April respectively. Let’s equip ourselves and get prepared to Imagine Rotary.
Area of April – Area 4

隨著社交距離限制進一步放寬，地區活動亦逐步回復。萬幸的是，對於PI Seminar 2.0、第62屆地區年會和RYLA皆可於五月底和六月初順利舉行。
當地區團隊正積極於年內完成規劃的工作之際，DGE Norman Lee及其團隊則為來年「想像扶輪」作好準備。蒙古PETS及PETS 2已分別於2022年4月9-10日及4月23日圓滿結束。
