Chairman’s Report (Extract from 2016-17 Annual Report)
Chairman’s Report (Extract from 2016-17 Annual Report)
 
The 67th Annual General Meeting of St. James’ Settlement was successfully held on Friday, 17th November 2017. 
 
Over the past 30 years, Mrs. Cynthia Luk, has led and managed the transformation of the Settlement from a small, community-based organization into a multi-purpose social welfare provider.
 
She has brought great flair and imagination to her role, and has been instrumental in shaping the innovative programmes developed by the Settlement to address the varied social issues faced by our multi-faceted society. She is also a skilled administrator, ensuring that all projects are managed with the utmost professionalism.
 
Mrs. Luk has announced her intention to retire as Chief Executive Officer by the end of this year and, with great reluctance, the Executive Committee has acceded to her wishes. We will surely miss her, and I take great pleasure in thanking her for her tireless service to our community. On behalf of us all, I wish her every success, happiness and personal fulfilment in all her future endeavours.
 
Upon Mrs. Luk’s retirement, she will be succeeded by Ms. Josephine Lee, who has served in a wide range of roles with the Settlement since 1989. Her depth of experience and knowledge of the needs of our community are second to none, and we are delighted to be able to promote such an accomplished member of our team to become our next Chief Executive Officer.
 
We have achieved so much together, and I am confident that, together, we will achieve so much more.
 
 
Dr. the Hon. David K. P. LI
Chairman
Executive Committee

The synergy of professionals from design, production, rehabilitation, social work, marketing and environment, with the use of the donated materials from corporations and the public, together with the talents of people with disabilities, shapes public’s perception towards eco-friendliness and creates diversified work opportunities and experience for persons with disabilities. This is a perfect demonstration of engaging the public to participate in bringing forth positive changes. At the prize presentation ceremony cum sharing session on 1 November 2017, representative of the upcycling team shared the centre’s mission and innovation wisdom with the audience to further promote the green concept for an integrated and sustainable community.

Graceful Meal
 

 
St. James’ Settlement Continuing Care has been meeting the needs of frail elders and their family caregivers. After three years of research and development by our team of dietitians and cooks, a pre-cooked soft diet tailor-made for dysphagic and frail elders has been launched recently. This nutritious and convenient diet delights the elders by its graceful appearance, easily consumed mousse-like texture and luscious taste. Naming as Graceful Meal, we hope to bring a meal of abundance and praises to elders, so that their nutritional needs can be met while promoting quality of life.
 
Our dietitian recommends eating 2 Graceful Meals per meal. 2 cartons (1 vegetable and 1 meat, 200g in total) going with a bowl of congee or pureed rice provide elders with necessary nutrition. The first 8 foods launched include:

“Letters to the heavenly you”
Facing the loss of the beloved ones has never been easy. In order to cope with the pain of loss, it is necessary for people to find an appropriate platform for them to grief. This is the reason why Funeral Navigation Service, St James’ Settlement organized “Letter to Heaven Competition” for three times in the past years, to encourage people who had faced the loss of relatives, friends as well as pets to express their feelings by writing letters to the lost ones. We collected these letters and published a book called “Letters to the heavenly you”.
22 letters are included in the book, in which you can witness how people survived the loss and kept moving on. You will be amazed by how people better understand themselves through loss and how they even grow beyond the grief. You may find some of these stories familiar, as all of us must have also encountered some loss in life.
This book is not only for the ancestors, but also every one of us who is still living. We sincerely hope you can gain comfort and new insight from the book, and start doing our best to treasure what we have at present. The book is now available in bookstores all over Hong Kong, including Eslite, Joint Publishing(HK) Co. Ltd., Chung Wah Book Co. and the religious bookstore.
