Mother’s Choice

Volunteers help with the bathing, dressing and feeding of the babies but are also be responsible for taking them to the park, playing with them, talking to them in English, arranging singing sessions or playing music; anything that can enhance their experience and make them feel well cared for and loved.

It is important that the children learn to interact with adults and receive stimulation so that they do not become ‘institutionalized’ and therefore be less likely to integrate well into their ultimate families. Most are very young but some of the children with special needs and handicaps will be up to 6 years old.

There are also opportunities for those wishing to use other skills such as IT specialists, marketing or fundraising specialists as well as others

Volunteers work just over 40 hours per week. There are always local professional staff on duty with volunteers. The Mother’s Choice ‘Baby Home’ where volunteers work is a pleasant 15 minute walk from the dormitory where they live (in a converted colonial military building in a leafy area near Central Hong Kong.)

The management of Mother’s Choice gives full briefing on responsibilities after arrival.
