President's Remarks

The founding of Hong Kong YWCA was rooted in Christ’s teaching of love and compassion. Four visionary and devoted Christian ladies witnessed and fulfilled the Christian spirit by establishing Hong Kong YWCA and shouldered the responsibility of improving the wellbeing of women and the underprivileged. Very soon, our Association evolved into a social service organisation offering diversified services ranging from women’s affairs, child and family wellness, youth development, education and training, elderly service to social business, with service units located all over Hong Kong. Amid various social changes, the Association has always adhered to the Christian spirit of love and compassion, and endeavored to become the social service pioneer by developing various tailored and forward-looking services to timely address the ever-changing social needs.

Since the establishment of the Association, it has upheld the purpose of “Enhancement of Life” without cease and has nurtured generations of YWCA fellows who pass on the Association’s founding mission and serve the society for its betterment by inheriting the foundation laid by our predecessors and past experiences. As the motto of the World YWCA goes, “Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,” says the Lord Almighty (Zechariah 4:6), in view of the growingly diversified social needs nowadays, I sincerely hope for the presence of Lord to bless us with His wisdom and humility so that we will unite as one to serve the community in need and live out His spirit of love and compassion. It is my pleasure to take up the role of President following Mrs. Patricia Ling to join hands with all of you to serve the society and fulfill the purpose of life enhancement. I dearly wish that the Association will continue to follow the Lord’s footsteps and serve humbly in the days ahead.
