We are Build and Wish Voluntary Team comprising of volunteers from all walks of life, welcome!
We are all volunteers without any staff, without any office, without any administration cost as a result! Build and Wish is a non-profitable, non-religious, non-political charitable organization registered in Hong Kong (IRD no. 91/14666)
Mission: Through our services, we gather resources, gather financial supports, gather volunteers for the needy in the community.
Our major services including the following:
1. Home Improvement Works
We are doing home improvement works for the needy referred by the social workers of different social welfare institutes in the community. Since Build and Wish started Home Improvement Works in 2015, and up to April 2017, we had completed over 200 cases.
2. Free 2nd hand furniture/home appliance Free Delivery to the Needy
In doing the Home Improvement Works, we had alerted that there are plenty of 2nd hand furniture/home appliance available in the internet for the needy on one side, and there are also a lots of needy requesting for the same, but the two groups were not coordinated and the needy are not well off to pay the delivery cost.
Build & Wish have taken up the coordination role and assisted the needy for the 2nd furniture and home appliance and offered free delivery and installation works to the needy home direct, from the donor (what we called A) and needy (what we named B), ie from A to B direct, without any storage cost. The delivery relies on our volunteers and public donations and donations from charitable foundations.
In our whatsapp group, there are over 100 social workers/staff of different social welfare institutes together with voluntary team from Footprint Voluntary Team, the needy families from elderly, single families, people with disabilities, physical or mentally illness, rehab, drug addicts, families suffered from violence, ethnic minorities, and others.
Since it kicked started in Oct 2016, for the short period of few months, we have delivered over 900 furniture/home appliance to the needy in the community, zero administration cost relying on the greatest efforts by the volunteers/social workers to coordinate and match the needy families, and the delivery team. Deepest thanks for every single donor! The programme cannot be resourcefully operated without their kind donations.
3. Debugging Works
Build & Wish Voluntary Team is also doing the free debugging works for the underprivileged with serious bug attack for years without any help anywhere, under our “Debugging Works - for the needy with the needy by the needy Programme”
