HAD opens temporary cold shelters
     In view of the cold weather, the Home Affairs Department has opened 18 temporary shelters today (January 15) for people in need of the service.
     The temporary shelters will remain open during the daytime tomorrow (January 16) when the Cold Weather Warning is still in force.
     To ensure that cold shelter users can rest in a quiet and undisturbed environment, members of the public or agencies wishing to make donations to shelter users are requested to register with the staff of the shelter first. Donors will then be directed to place the donated items at a specified indoor location. The staff will help notify the shelter users to collect the items on their own.
     Anyone seeking temporary refuge or those with any questions about the donation arrangements at the cold shelters may call the department's hotline 2572 8427 for more information.
