Our vision is to provide Hong Kong people with world-class wastewater treatment and stormwater drainage services. Thanks for the active participation by and full support of our stakeholders, we succeeded in implementing a number of flood prevention and sewage treatment projects in recent years. In 2014-15, we continued the initiative to arrange public engagement exercises and media promotion programmes as our major stakeholder engagement activities; and contributed to the community and youth development through educational outreach schemes and volunteer services.

Volunteer Services and Charitable Activities

During their spare time, our colleagues actively participate in various volunteer services and charitable activities to contribute to the betterment of the community. This year, DSD Volunteer Team took part in 25 volunteer activities, with over 1 000 service hours in total.

Visiting the Elderly

In support of the “Hong Kong Citizen, Hong Kong Heart” Campaign organised by the Social Welfare Department, our Volunteer Team made lucky handicrafts as blessing gifts for the elderly at care homes. The visit in August 2014 even included Cantonese opera, balloon twisting and towel exercise for having fun with the elderly.

We also visit the elderly at Lai Yiu Bradbury Care Home every month, chatting with and caring for them as their “old chums” through mini-handicraft workshops.

In January 2015, we, together with our working partners, provided home cleaning services for the elderly to wish them a joyful Lunar New Year.

Shoreline Clean-up and Fund-raising Activities

Our Staff Club, Volunteer Team, and Green Champions co-organised the “Join Hands to Clean Shoreline” at Po Chue Tam, Lantau Island in December 2014. More than 70 colleagues, their families and friends, as well as our working partners supported the activity and collected 21 bags of rubbish weighing about 130 kg to help keep our shores clean.

Throughout the year, we also joined various community fundraisers including:
