Where / by whom did the First Hong Kong orphanage start?
A group of adult Hong Kong adoptees and I are organising an adoptee reunon in Hong Kong in Sept 2010 (www.caawr.com), so as part of our reunion I would love to understand the story behind the first Hong Kong orphanage, who started it, when and what brought it to past.
I thought it was part of Tung Wah hospital, but then thought it was started by a group of French missionaries. I do know there were a lot of orphanages started up by internationals in Hong Kong during during the escape for the Chinese from the Japanese. The closest story I got was around the Mildred Dibden time and Fanling.
Would really love to hear from anyone with any links and facts asap.
