HKCS Children Visiting Rocky Malcolm Mar 7, 2009

(Email Lamma-Gung for high-resolution or print-quality photos.)

Rocky Malcolm's fame is increasing week after week! After several stories in the Lamma-zine - inc. an Artist of the Month art gallery - his story of overcoming leukemia and piling rocks at Power Station Beach has been picked up and spread throughout the HK Media, from a Chinese discussion forum (160 messages!) to Ming Pao Daily and an HK Magazine interview this week. Malcolm got quite a bit of feedback, inc. an email from the HK Christian Service charity for children of parents with chronic illnesses. They asked to meet him as part of their Project Life Mutual Support Network. He most generously agreed and HKCS also convinced me to play the tour guide for this Saturday afternoon, showing them, their "handlers" and volunteers around Yung Shue Wan. Then I suggested walking up to Lamma Winds, before meeting up with Malcolm at Power Station Beach.

So Rocky Malcolm's story has returned from other HK media to the Lamma-zine for one more round! This was one of my favourite photo shoots ever as the children were a real pleasure to guide and so happy to be on Lamma for a fun and inspirational day. Each of them has parents with chronic illnesses, often mental problems like depression, and they were so eager to meet leukemia survivor Malcolm and hear his very inspirational story. I do quite a bit of free promotion and marketing for local charities, but this volunteering gig was really hands-on and even more fun and very fulfilling for me personally. I'll be looking for more opportunities soon.... More photos in HKCS volunteer Paul's photo gallery.
