Volunteer Services

The volunteers of HKACS and JCCRC organise recreational activities, visits and support services regularly for cancer patients and their families to show their care. All volunteer services are supervised and led by full time staff. Volunteers must work together sincerely to achieve the goals of HKACS.

HKACS has been blessed to have a team of enthusiastic volunteers of different ages and backgrounds supporting various services we provided. A number of them were cancer survivors, or having relatives or friends suffered from cancer. We deeply appreciated their passion and dedications to enhance public's cancer awareness and to support cancer patients and their families in different stages. We also value cancer survivors' contributions to the volunteer services through which people can learn from their positive attitudes in fighting cancer.

Volunteers Online Gathering

The first Volunteers Online Gathering was successfully held on 6 March 2021 with 25 volunteers participated. The aim of the gathering was to strengthen the connection between volunteers and update the development of the voluntary work of HKACS. On the day of the event, we highlighted various important voluntary work in 2020 and invited volunteers to share their experience. In addition, we were appreciated having Mrs. Patricia Chu, our Chairman, to report on the future work of the Society.
