“Tackling Epilepsy” Campaign

“Tackling Epilepsy” campaign is one of our latest initiatives, striving to both educate the city’s youth about epilepsy and encourage 
children with well-controlled epilepsy to not only participate, but excel in sports.
 
On the eve of the rugby faceoff between The British and Irish Lions and the AP Barbarians 
on June 1st, Enlighten’s “Tackling epilepsy” campaign was launched with total support from the London Scottish Team and HKRFU(Hong Kong Rugby Football Union). Led by former Lions player and Enlighten’s patron and co-founder, Tom Smith, the campaign aspires to highlight what people with epilepsy are capable of achieving.

For the youth in Hong Kong, coming to terms with any disorder can be daunting. It is all the more difficult for youth with epilepsy, due to the strong social stigma and the many myths and misconceptions that surround epilepsy. Many people with epilepsy are not encouraged to play any sport for fear of having a seizure and most of the time, their teammates are uncomfortable too. Sports is an integral part of every child and youth’s life providing opportunities for social inclusion, exercise, teamwork and fun and for this reason, the campaign strives to help those with epilepsy realise their own potential, whether it is on the sports field or in the classroom.

Just as our patron, Tom Smith made a name for himself in international rugby despite having epilepsy, the campaign hopes to motivate all the affected children and youth in Hong Kong with well-controlled seizures to continue playing sports.

The ongoing campaign will partner with outdoor activity providers and youth organizations in the city to open a dialogue with the public about seizure management, the importance of encouragement towards those with epilepsy, and the characteristics of the condition itself.

With the help of Enlighten’s supporters, donors and volunteers the campaign can achieve its aim to encourage children and youth with the condition to play sports and, just as importantly, establish an environment where they are welcomed and encouraged to do so. 

「超越界限 齊助腦癇」計劃

 

「超越界限 齊助腦癇」計劃是我們最近期推出的活動。主要是教育青少年多認識腦癇症及鼓勵患有腦癇症的孩子去參與運動。在六月一日㰖球戰的前夕,這計劃得到英國蘇格蘭隊及香港欖球總會的支持,由前英倫雄獅隊隊球員和啟迪會創辦人-Tom Smith帶領下正式推行。這計劃是為了說明腦癇症患者也有能力獲得成就。香港青少年或會對病患感到害怕。但對於患有腦癇症的青少年,面對社會上的歧視及其他對腦癇症的誤解所承受的壓力更大。不少人反對腦癇症患者參與運動,因害怕在運動期間發作和令隊友造成困擾。但運動是一個為小孩及青少年學習被社會接納,發揮團隊精神和玩耍的平台。有見及此,這計劃希望能令受影響的小孩及青少年在運動場上或生活上都能發展他們的潛能。 我們的創辦人,Tom Smith,雖患有腦癇症,亦能成為國際㰖球員,以此希望可為更多在腦癇症得到控制下而想參與運動的小孩帶來龧光。計劃會與更多運動供應商及青年機構會合作為大眾舉辦一些關於認識腦癇症、處理腦癇症發作、及鼓勵大眾對腦癇症患者加以支持的講座或活動。在啟迪會支持者,善長以及義工的協助下,活動都達到了其目的。不但鼓勵腦癇症青年參與運動,更重要的是令他們明白社會對他們的接納及包容。


HOPE Campaign 

As part of Enlighten’s commitment to providing support and care to those
affected by epilepsy and to remove prejudice through community education, Enlighten introduced the first and only Helping Other People with Epilepsy (HOPE) Campaign in Hong Kong last year to impact a positive change in the community.The first phase is to identify 60 HOPE Heroes, who have epilepsy.  We are excited that 13 new heroes have joined the campaign taking the total to 30. The HOPE heroes have all taken a stand to fight the stigma, share their experiences with others around them and become epilepsy ambassadors. 

HOPE 計劃
 

啟迪會承諾對受腦癎症患者給予支持及照顧,以及利用教育去解除社會對腦癎症的偏見。因此,我們於去年推行了獨有的HOPE計劃,希望為社區注入正面的影響。第一階段有60位HOPE英雄,他們全是腦癇症患者。HOPE英雄會盡力為腦癇症病人打破歧視,分享個人經驗及成為腦癎症大使。


Primary School Training 

The “Sunflower Schools Primary Education Programme” is Enlighten’s flagship training programme for the primary school children in Hong Kong. With Kadoorie Foundation’s support, we have been trying to raise epilepsy awareness among the young for the past three years.

In the past quarter, we have conducted 25 sessions training over 608 students and 316 teachers and staff from primary schools across Hong Kong.

It is also heartening to note that 7 schools agreed to be identified as “epilepsy friendly schools” making a commitment to help us in our aim to build epilepsy awareness.

「向日葵腦癇症教育計劃」

 

「向日葵腦癇症教育計劃」是啟迪會對香港小學所推出的重點項目之一。得到嘉道理基金的支持,我們在過去三年一直提高小孩對腦癇症的關注。過去的三個月裡,我們已為608位學生及316位老師提供了25節的訓練,另有七所學校決定成為「腦癇友好學校」,承諾致力協助我們宣揚腦癇症的訊息,我們為此感到非常欣慰。


Drinks & Comedy @PLAY - 26th April

To support the fight against epilepsy and raise funds for Enlighten, two of Enlighten’s supporters, Sapna Mirpuri & 
her sister Krishika organised a fun evening at one of the hippest venues in Hong Kong, PLAY. Comedian Jim Brewsky got the crowd going with his jokes adding to all the excitement! There was a fantastic turnout of people, who were keen to support the cause. The emphasis of the evening was on raising awareness especially since some of the guests were directly or indirectly affected by Epilepsy. Enlighten is grateful to Sapna and Krishika for their supporting Enlighten and their efforts to raise funds and epilepsy awareness.

為了繼續提高對腦癇症的關注及為啟迪會籌集善款,兩名啟迪會的支持者,Sapna Mirpuri與她的妹妹,Krishika, 在PLAY酒吧舉行了派對,是次活動旨在提高大眾對腦癇症的關注。Jim Brewsky,一名戲劇演員,更以他的棟篤笑為全場帶了無限的歡樂!出乎意料地,不少參加者對這個活動有很大的回響,皆因原來在場不少賓客也認識患有腦癇症的人。啟迪會非常感謝Sapna和Krishika對我們的支持以及她們為提升社會對腦癇症關注所籌得的善款。

“Living with the Lions” Charity Lunch- 31st May

On the eve of the Irish& British Lions rugby match v/s the AP Barbarians, Enlighten organised a charity rugby lunch hosting four rugby legends, Sir Ian McGeechan, Joe Stanley, Mark Ella & Tom Smith(Enlighten’s patron and co-founder) at the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club in Causeway bay.
 
It was a perfect day with the sun shining making the compass room overlooking the east side of the harbour, the perfect venue for 150 enthusiastic guests including some diehard rugby fans. “Living with the Lions” Q&A session was the highlight of the afternoon. Enlighten’s tenth anniversary ambassador and Hong Kong’s legendary musician, Howard McCrary, gave a heart-warming performance that was enjoyed by all.

於愛爾蘭及英國隊參加對戰亞洲區㰖球賽前夕,啟迪會為四位㰖球巨星 — Sir Ian McGeechan, Joe Stanley, Mark Ella & Tom Smith(同時亦是啟迪會的贊助及創辦人)於銅鑼灣的香港遊艇會籌備了一場慈善午宴。當天天氣晴朗,我們不單可以遠眺維港的景色,也為150個賓客提供了美好的場地享受午膳。“Living with the Lions”的問答環節是整個下午的焦點。另外,所有賓客也欣賞了香港著品音樂家候活.麥格尼,啟迪會十週年的榮譽大使,的窩心演出。
