BRIEF HISTORY OF REMAR HONG KONG
We arrive at Hong Kong on February 14, 1998. Two missionaries, traveling     together with Miguel Diez, president of Remar International, and his wife M. Carmen, came to establish the work of Remar. A first home is opened in Lantau Island with capacity for 15 residents, where the specific work of rehabilitation begins with young people. A few months later, within the same Lantau Island, we move to a bigger home,
 
previously used for the same purpose of rehabilitation of drug addicts. However, this house is distant from the urban centers, making difficult the daily transfers and the direct bonding with the people who live in the streets of Hong Kong. As a consequence, a new specific home for first phase is opened in Pat Heung, New Territories, with capacity for 20 rehabilitants, located near the mountains, at a much better environment then the prior. We start visiting and rescuing many drug addicts of all ages that live and meet in areas like Yau Ma Tei and Sham Shui Po, at Kowloon. With the arrival of the first married couple and their children, to take charge of the work, a married couple’s home is opened at Yueng Long. At this stage, we begin visiting the methadone clinics of Yuen Long and Tuen Mun. Also at Yuen Long, a warehouse with workshops is opened, where the donations of furniture, electrical appliances, household - apart of clothes, beddings, toys, etc - are repaired and selected, to cover the needs of the community in Hong Kong and also to ship in containers to the different homes for needy people that Remar has opened in the Philippines.

Remar Association keeps on serving Hong Kong by working through the love of God and one another, helping the addicts, the homeless, the abandoned and the needy in general. Our door is open 24 hours a day, offering an immediate admission and a free long-term rehabilitation program that helps them to experience a new and better way of life.
