Thanksgiving Day 2017

In support of Oxfam Hong Kong’s campaign, ‘Poverty. Full-time’, an art exhibition on working poverty, Professor Gabriel Leung, Dean of Medicine, discarded his suit and tie for a courier's uniform. Delivering several packages, including a 20kg parcel strapped to a trolley, he experienced the challenges many people in Hong Kong faced from physically-demanding and time-consuming jobs. At the end of his shift, he took up his stethoscope again to give his fellow workers a health check and some advice on healthy living. Watch the video here.

 

As the Chinese New Year is getting closer, we wish to take the first step to give thanks and send blessings to all in need. Co-organised by the Health Committee of Medical Society, HKUSU and the Faculty, student volunteers will express their gratitude to those who serve them day to day on the medical campus by offering medical checks and health counselling to our support staff, including cleaners and security guards, on the upcoming Thanksgiving Day.
