     The Deputy Director of Home Affairs, Mr Patrick Li, today (March 27) visited the Grace Youth Camp in Ma On Shan, Sha Tin. He attended the old mine experience tour cum sharing with youth activity to discuss life experiences in an interactive way with dozens of young people from Sha Tin District.

     In line with the Policy Address this year to further promote youth development, the Home Affairs Department (HAD) will continue organising interesting community activities, especially activities for young people, with a view to fostering their sense of belonging in the community. At district level, the HAD will keep strengthening networking and communication with young people and organise diverse activities to enhance their self-confidence and unleash their potential, and encourage them to become responsible and contributing members of the community by actively taking part in social affairs.    

     The experience tour cum sharing session is one of the youth community activities in Sha Tin District. The event started with a guided tour of the old Ma On Shan mine village. Among the historic surroundings of the old Ma On Shan mine village, the young participants took the opportunity to explore stories relating to the mines and appreciate the perseverance of the miners and villagers in surmounting their difficulties.  

     Accompanied by the District Officer (Sha Tin), Ms Cora Ho, and Sha Tin District Council members, Mr Li met with the young people in the sharing session and talked about life experiences with them. He encouraged them to join together to strive for a better community with an indomitable spirit and a positive attitude.
