On Tuesday, 17th November 2015, Thai-Hong Kong Trade Association (THTA) and Nexentel donated 40 sets of refurbished personal computers to the Human Development Foundation-Mercy Centre. The equipment will be used by the Mercy Centre and other twelve kindergartens in the poor communities.
At the handover ceremony, Father Joe and his team made a brief presentation of activities of the Mercy Centre to the delegate of THTA. After the presentation, the whole group enjoyed a tour around the Centre’s facilities.

Thank you Nexentel again for its kind contribution to THTA and Mercy Centre.
HDF-Mercy Centre’s background:
Mercy Centre is a shelter for street kids, five orphanages, a hospice, a home for mothers and children with HIV/AIDS, a 400-pupil kindergarten, a community meeting place, and a serene haven in the slums with small gardens and playgrounds. Originally built on a former Buddhist Temple site on port authority property, Mercy Centre has stood in some shape or form for nearly 40 years. In 2000, it was rebuilt through a generous gift to accommodate our expanding services to orphans, street children, and children with HIV/AIDS.
