"Invent for Love" Exhibition and Awards Presentation Ceremony

Dear Friends,

Happy New Year!

Last year, we organised an "Invent for Love" Secondary School Students Invention Contest, inviting Hong Kong's secondary school students to invent assistive tools for our patients to improve their quality of living.

The contest has ended, and we have selected outstanding works from five schools. We will be hosting an awards presentation ceremony and exhibition of the winning works on 28/2, and you are invited to come!

We will also introduce the mouse designed for us by HKUST's SIGHT team at the event.

In addition, we have teamed up with patient groups from Singapore, Malaysia and other countries and put together a "World Through My Eyes" exhibition. The exhibition will be held alongside the "Invent for Love" events. This is also an event of Rare Disease Day 2016.

Please come to support us!

Buddies Scheme Kick-off Ceremony

The Kick-off Ceremony at 2pm on Sunday 8 March 2009 (Sunday) at Citywalk in Tsuen Wan marks the official launch of our Buddies Scheme.

The Buddies Scheme is the first program ever in Hong Kong where you can pair-up one-on-one with patients with rare genetic diseases.  The scheme aims to connect MPS patients and the public at large as buddies, gain financial support from the community to cover over the million-dollar medication cost per patient each year, and raise awareness to rare genetic diseases as well as the needs of patients who live with such diseases.  It is co-organized by our group and final year students majoring in English for Professional Communication at the City University of Hong Kong.

Everyone is welcome to join the Buddies Scheme and be buddies of patients with rare genetic diseases.

For details about the Buddies Scheme, please click here for the press release or visit the Buddies Scheme website.
