To mark the milestone of the FAMILY Project, the Kick-off Ceremony of “FAMILY Holistic Health” cum “Hong Kong Family and Health Information Trends Survey” Press Conference was held on May 14. An innovative Zero-time Exercise concept is advocated to encourage citizens to increase physical exercise by simple movements that can be done any time at any places. The event captured wide media coverage and public attention.
Riding on the success of Phase I, Phase II of the FAMILY Project has been launched. The project takes a step further to promote FAMILY 3Hs with a special focus on FAMILY Holistic Health. More new family-centred initiatives will be rolled out to benefit more families in Hong Kong.
FAMILY Project has made enormous efforts in the past six years, including organizing a variety of community-based intervention projects, a territory-wide family cohort study and extensive public education. The response has been highly encouraging. Moving forward, we will continue to work hard to promote holistic health of families.
FAMILY Project has given out the nicely designed red packets and spring scrolls for families to celebrate the Lunar New Year and to spread our blessings. We hope to bring forth the message of Family 3Hs (Health, Happiness and Harmony) to every part of the community.
A sea of smiling faces was seen at the FAMILY 3Hs Gathering Day, with many parents, children and residents participating in a wide range of activities including a creative drama performance, interactive game booths and a heart-touching exhibition. The event was aimed at disseminating the 3Hs message to residents of the Central and Western District and to encourage them to have more positive communication with family.
The 3Hs Family Drama Project used creative and interactive drama performances to spread the message of Family Health, Happiness and Harmony. The musical drama was watched by more than 25,000 audiences in a year. The closing ceremony held on 5 October further spread the important message of Family 3Hs.
The Happy Family Kitchen Project has published the Practice Manual 2 containing rich and varied content. It is hoped that this manual can share practical knowledge and experiences with the social service sector and brings out the spirit of “Best Science for Best Practice”.
