HK Cares

The author of this report has been asked to describe and detail a community partner that shall be the basis for further research and description. Several important facets and traits of the organization will be mentioned. Those items will include the name of the organization, a brief history of the organization, the mission statement of the organization, the vision statement of the organization, the populations that the organization serves, the public policy areas that the group focuses on, the geographic area that is served by the group and the role that volunteers play when it comes to the organization. While HK Cares is not the largest or best communication organization in Hong Kong, they are certainly a part of what helps the community and makes it feel and live better.

The efforts and giving of HK Cares focuses on both public and private hospitals in Hong Kong. The group is certainly not limited based on profit motive (or lack thereof) or the people or agency that has a controlling interest in the hospital and its operations.

The mission and vision statements for the foundation are fairly basic and easy to understand. As one might expect, they both center on the care that is to be furnished and provided. The mission statement, as is the norm, focuses on the present. By contrast, the vision statement is more about where the foundation wants to be in the future. Even with the difference between the two, the chords that are struck should obviously be related. The only main difference would be the time horizon in question. With that in mind, the mission statement of HK Cares is to “provide expedient and expansive care to the elderly within Hong Kong area hospitals in a way that is caring, empathetic, efficient and useful”.
