Resident’s Upbring and Education
in Daily Life
Most of children come from malfunctioned
families; therefore, they are slow in physical
and mental developments. They need more love and
professional attention. The SRCHMOHW provides
eleven homes, based on children’s gender and
age. Each home is set up as a family. The eleven
homes are: Year Yuan, Dong Tsuen Le Xiao Zhu, Xi
Tsuen Le Xiao Zhu, Dong Chen Xin Yuan, Xi Chen
Xin Yuan, Dong Chuan Xin Tsai, Xi Chuan Xin
Tsai, Dong Gen Yu Lu, Xi Gen Yu Lu, Dong Gen Xin
Yuan, and Xi Gen Xin Yuan. Each home has two
attendants. Each one takes turn to provide the
children with the best twenty-four hour care.
The attendants not only take care of the
children’s daily life, but also visit children’s
school when possible. They talk with the
children every night before they go to sleep.
The social workers and counselors also visit
each home periodically to help the children who
need extra guidance or consultations. The
dietitians take care of children’s meal and
