“Read for Love” Reading Program 2020-2021
Ronald McDonald House Charities® Hong Kong
Reading can improve a child’s comprehension skills, grammatical knowledge and critical thinking. Through Ronald McDonald House Charities® Hong Kong (RMHC® Hong Kong) “Read for Love” Reading Program 2020-2021, children can read for a good cause. With COVID-19 this year, we adhere to continue with this program and your generous support is significant to us.
The program recruits young readers to raise funds for the charity’s operations, which is to care for sick children and their families at the Ronald McDonald House® (RMH). Throughout the years, over a hundred primary schools and kindergartens have joined our program. On behalf of the sick children and their families, we sincerely invite your school to participate and contribute to the community.
RMH is the cornerstone project of Ronald McDonald House Charities. Established in 1996, RMHC Hong Kong was the first Asia’s RMH that provides a “home-away-from-home” service to families with seriously ill children who receive medical treatment at the nearby hospital. The sick children who stay in RMH suffer from serious illnesses such as cancer, trauma and burns. The House is equipped with 23 family rooms including 1 isolation suite specially conceived for bone marrow transplant patients. There is also a common kitchen, living and dining room, library, computers, and indoor as well as outdoor play areas. RMHC Hong Kong has since been providing family-centered care service to more than 5,000 sick children and their families.
This meaningful campaign will start in November 2020. Through reading, your students can also benefit the community and send love to the sick children and their families at the same time. Together, we can make a difference.
