To facilitate the casting of elderly centres on district election day, SWD has provided a one-off subsidy of $190,2 to over 2 elderly centres to arrange transportation and manpower to transport the elderly to the polling centres. Lok Sin Tong Wan Lap Keung Neighbourhood for the Elderly said that two rehabilitation buses and one rehabilitation taxi were arranged to pick up and drop off the elderly at the centre four times today. According to the CFS, there are 1 elderly persons in need of relevant services for the time being.
The Secretary for Labour and Welfare, Mr Chris Sun, arrived at Lok Sin Tong Wan Lap Keung Neighbourhood Elderly Centre in the morning and accompanied dozens of elderly people to the polling station of Chiu Chau Chau College in Tsuen Wan to cast their votes. Volunteers from the centre checked whether the elderly were carrying their identity cards before setting off and then accompanied them to the bus. In the first round of the pick-up service, a total of 18 elderly people arrived at the polling station, entered the polling station by themselves, and the volunteers waited outside the gate, and then the rehabus took them back to the centre after voting.
Granny Lam, who participated in the service, said that she had voted every year in the past and was satisfied with the relevant measures this year. She also pointed out that in the past, there was no pick-up service and she had to go to the ticket station by herself, "Sun Sheng saw our old man and waited for us to come to his convenience."
Granny Lee, who is in her 80s, also expressed her satisfaction with the measures, "We are convenient for the elderly."
Mr Sun said that more than 190 elderly centres had participated in the scheme, and he said that guidelines had been issued to the centres to remain neutral and not to influence the voting intentions of the elderly. He also mentioned that the $2,2 subsidy is a one-off grant, and if the $<>,<> is not used up, the one-off grant of the centre needs to be used for similar services.
