HONG KONG, Mar 12 – Lu Tak Ming, chief executive of the non-profit-making charitable organization Yan Oi Tong, welcomes the Hong Kong Charity Law reform, provided that the restrictions are not too harsh.


A Consultation Paper on Charities has been proposed since 2011, suggested setting up a charity commission as the reglatory body and build up a comprehensive framework for the establishment and regulation of charities in Hong Kong.


Lu believed that stricter supervision is efficient to refrain illegitimate organizations from deceiving the citizens to donate money in the name of charities.


“Nowadays, a license is not required for most fundraising activities except for flag selling. It is expected that the enactment of law can strike illegal fundraising activities,” said Lu.


Despite the fact that the government has put much effort on social welfare, Lu said that the existing Community Care Fund is not effective as the public do not know where the donations are exactly used for.


He hoped that the enactment of law will enhance the transparency of charitable activities in Hong Kong under a more comprehensive social welfare system.
