Giving back to those in society who need our support has always been critical, but there’s never been a more pressing need than in recent years, with COVID continuing to impact both the operations and fundraising of charities across Hong Kong.
Organisations across the city work day and night to support those who need it most, be they the elderly or children, locals, foreign workers or refugees. The pandemic has meant that they need our help more than ever, so here are five ways to support five charities doing brilliant work under the toughest of circumstances. (Keep in mind that given the changing nature of restrictions, it’s best to contact them first before donating.)
Feeding Hong Kong
More people than ever are seeking food assistance due to increasing food prices, fewer surplus food donations and more complex logistics. Seniors are again isolated at home, homeless charities are struggling with a spike in need and shelters supporting migrant workers are overflowing. Feeding Hong Kong supports them all — and many more charities like them — so supporting their emergency response efforts goes a long way. Check their current fundraising campaigns, which sometimes feature sponsors matching all donations.
