Hong Fook Radiothon

The 2021 Hong Fook Radiothon Fundraising Week, in partnership with Sing Tao A1 Radio, will be hosted from July 16 to July 22.

The timely access to culturally competent mental health care is the top 1 priority Hong Fook has been addressing in the sector. This need becomes extremely urgent in our communities facing a looming mental health crisis during the pandemic and amid the ongoing anti-Asian racism.

Since the first outbreak in last March, Hong Fook has observed an increasing number of crisis cases due to clients’ hesitation to access ER/hospitals during the pandemic, an increasing number of domestic violence incidents due to the lack of private spaces during the lockdown, and an increasing number of clients with more severe anxiety/depression issues triggered by social isolation, financial uncertainty and other socio-economic factors. Both Clinical Service and Youth Walk-In/Short-Term Counselling Service wait times have been increased significantly. Compared with pre-COVID time in 2019, our Integrated Community Program has reached out to 50% more community members through wellness seminars. Our Integrated Recovery Program has delivered 25% more group sessions to people in recovery while struggling with various challenges for digital access.

This is the moment, more than ever, we count on your generosity. Kindly refer to our sponsorship package. More details will be provided regarding the ways to donate very soon. For any further information, please contact Sunny Wang at swang@hongfook.ca or 416-493-4242 ext. 2258.
