"LET OUR SPECIAL HANDS SHINE!"
WHO WE ARE
‘Hand in Hand’ is a dream project initiated by Andreas, when he was 6-year-old, who was born with a congenital limb difference (commonly recognised in Hong Kong as ‘先天手’ (sin1 tin1 sau2), directly translated as ‘natural/inborn hand’). He has a normal-sized right hand and a small palm with ‘little nibbles’ as a left hand. Since birth, he has been blessed by a number of loving professionals, who have helped him develop to be a cheerful and confident boy. In return, he wishes to share his personal experience with others and care for children in a similar situation - “I want to link all of us together by our hands, and help us make friends with each other.”
So here at Hand in Hand, we want to provide a platform for children with congenital upper limb differences, together with their parents in Hong Kong, to grow together and support each other. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits. At the same time, we wish to share useful resources from professionals in Hong Kong and similar support groups around the world.
