The Society for the Relief of Disabled Children

About

Many children in Hong Kong and China are disabled and their family is without means to provide for their treatment. This would deprive the disabled children of their future as their educational, working, social, and leisure rights are limited. SRDC aims to give the children hope and a future by tackling problems at hand. SRDC operates many effective programmes. SRDC also finance some much needed equipment at DKCH to provide the best possible medical treatment for disabled children.

The China Patients Project sponsors and support, impoverished children from Mainland China to receive surgical, medical and rehabilitation help at the DKCH. The sponsored Fellowship Programme allows foreign orthopaedic surgeons to come to DKCH to learn the latest knowledge and techniques.

The Implant Sponsorship Programme helps disabled children obtain advanced medical implants which are not covered by the Hospital Authority. SRDC also runs the Kids On The Block Puppet Troupe, which is an educational programme aimed to promote inclusivity and to eliminate discrimination among school aged children.

SRDC hopes that one day, the entire community will accept and help disabled children to have a better life, hope and future.
