Fountain of Heart Mini Concert

Ms Christina Wong is a famous female writer and musician in Hong Kong.

Although she lost her eyesight when she was a child, Christina is cheerful, optimistic and full of positive energy. Moreover, she is committed to promoting the integration of able-bodied and disabled people.

Christina and other artists will perform at the Fountain of Heart Mini Concert on the evening of July 25 at Youth Square in Chai Wan. She told me that the sole purpose of the concert was to promote the concept of true integration between people regardless of nationality, physical condition or personal history, by showcasing the remarkable talent of artists of different abilities. She also hopes to make members of the community realise that no one is completely disabled or forever able-bodied. Naturally, when we grow old our body functions will not be as good as before. Eyesight and hearing deteriorate with age and a person's mind will no longer be as sharp as it once was. The diminution or even loss of eyesight, hearing or limb movements is similar to what many disabled people experience. The only difference is in the degree of disability and the time it happens.

Christina wanted me to make a video for the concert as a token of gratitude to the performing guests and the audience. So I spared some time to give an interview at Government House to Christina and a few volunteers helping with the concert during the weekend before my visit to the United States and Canada. If you are curious about the video, you can go to the concert and see it for yourself.
