Kit Ying Chan is the Director of Services at Mother’s Choice, overseeing the organisation’s services for children, youth, and families. After graduating from the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Sociology, Kit Ying was hired as the first social worker at Mother’s Choice in 1988. In 1992, she began her work with China’s state orphanages, in response to the widespread baby abandonment during that time. In 1995, she founded “Guangxi-Hong Kong Mother’s Love Orphanage”, the first joint venture between Hong Kong and China, where she pioneered a professional model for residential child care services, introducing foster care and specialised care for children with special needs. Kit Ying returned to Hong Kong in 2011 and continues to pioneer in this field as she leads the team to provide life transforming services for clients of Mother’s Choice. In 2019 she published her first book Hidden Treasures.
