The PolyU “Love Without Borders” team from Rehabilitation Sciences helps earthquake survivors rejoin society

As occupational therapists, we need to provide those in need with medium and long-term rehabilitation treatment to help them reintegrate into society.

Mr Tang Kin-chung,

Occupational Therapy Clinical Associate, Department of Rehabilitation Sciences

After years of dedication and collaboration among various parties, including Master's students from The Institute for Disaster Management and Reconstruction, jointly established by PolyU and Sichuan University, the teams have successfully pushed forward post-quake reconstruction and promoted communication and technological exchanges between rehabilitation professionals in Hong Kong and Sichuan province.

"Love Without Borders" is the name PolyU students gave to the Ludian Rehabilitation Support team. More than 130 students from PolyU have participated in the "Love Without Borders" mission trips, providing rehabilitation services to approximately 110 disabled people in Ludian and surrounding areas. The team goes to Ludian at least twice a year to provide assistance for targeted clients and other professional services.
