In recent years, lottery industry has been flourishing in Hong Kong, Macau, and everywhere in the world. It helps stimulate travelling industry and increase tax revenue. The popularity of stock markets makes investment become speculation. Globalization ties the world with communications. People can gamble on horse-racing or soccer-betting through the internet. Problem Gambling spreads and loans increases. Many people become pathological gamblers. Gambling and loans have distressed and harassed many families. One gambler can make the whole family suffer.
We set up this centre as a non-profit registered organization in Hong Kong in May, 2007. We pledge to help pathological gamblers and their families. Through the teaching of the Bible, we help the pathological gamblers to face difficulties with physical and spiritual power so that they can recover and rebuilt a healthy and normal life.
