WE MADE A DIFFERENCE
The College works with a variety of charity organizations to provide opportunities for students to participate in voluntary services. In addition to experiencing an exciting campus life, the College encourages students to care about the underprivileged and to contribute to the community. SHHO students have made impact in different corners of the world – in Hong Kong, the Mainland, Cambodia and Uganda.
Social Service in Cambodia
S.H. Ho College has been sending students Cambodia to serve the needy since 2012. Under the guidance of an accompanying professor, SHHO students would serve the needy in a slum area in Phnoem Penh, the home for HIV+/AIDS affected orphans, and orphanage for the disabled orphans. Students from the Faculty of Medicine would provide the residents with voluntary medical consultations. This is a life changing experience in the hope of doing more for the underprivileged people in the world.
