Innovation and Talents - Creating a Fruitful Third Age

Longevity is no longer a dream in this advanced society. Hongkongers on average enjoy 20 odd years of life after retirement. Have you ever considered how to make those years meaningful?

Retired Third Age citizens would often feel frustrated as they are unprepared for retirement. Our lives are well-planned from birth, adolescence to adulthood. Yet, we rarely think of what to do after we reach retirement age.

This Mid-Autumn Festival, The Salvation Army sincerely invites you to support our Community Care Services, to help those in need, and to support the newly retirees to learn more about innovative technology in their retirement. In turn, they could enjoy a wonderful Third Age while helping other elderly in need.

Longer Life Expectancy - The Life Track of the Third Age

A report in 2017 from the Census and Statistics Department indicated that the life expectancy of people in Hong Kong has increased steadily for the past 47 years, from 67.8 years for males and 75.3 years for females in 1971, to 81.7 years and 87.7 years respectively in 2017. Apart from the change of the physique and livelihood, Third Age citizens might feel confused about planning their retirement.

Your donation will use to support the Third Age citizens, help them to develop a fruitful life in their retirement, and also provide assistance to others in need.
