The “Touch the Soul” charity concert was held on
12 April 2009 (Sunday) at Concert Hall of Hong Kong Cultural Centre to raise part of the funds needed for these programmes and featured the world famous pianists Uriel Tsachor from the University of Iowa to perform the Beethoven Piano Concerto No.5 “Emperor” and Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique.
HKARF collaborates with the Department of Psychiatry, The University of Hong Kong, on this Psycho-social Program. The program will provide the much needed counselling service to help our arthritis patients to overcome their emotional and social problems and to improve their quality of left.
The scopes of the programme are as follows:
