HONG KONG, March 12-Regulatory regime for charities is beneficial to all NGOs, said the head of a Hong Kong nonprofit organization.

“There is many informal fund raising activities on the street which cheating money,” said Lu Tak Ming, the Chief Executive Officer of Yan Oi Tong, one of the famous local NGOs.

According to Inland Revenue Department, there are 7,505 charitable institutions and trusts of a public character listed under the section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance. The Law Reform Commission of Hong Kong raised the problem of lacking regulation for these organizations and released a consultation paper to it.

Lu said there are good and bad NGOs in Hong Kong, but there is no regulations or laws to restrict them. He said the only restriction on charitable activity is flag selling.

“The public may affected by the bad behavior and reduce their donation toward the small scale NGOs,” said Lu, “The situation does not occur on the famous and iconic organizations like Yan Oi Tong.”

The new Budget addressed that a total amount of 15 billion HKD capital injections to the Community Care Fund. Lu said the Fund is holding a lot of resources that can launch whatever projects it want. He said the Fund used to gobble some events the NGOs was doing by using its power.

“It is a monster,” said Lu, “But I doubt for the effect of its projects.”

Yan Oi Tong is a local NGO focusing on social services, medical services, education, and environmental protection. Lu said a working capital of 0.4 billion is needed and 80% is from the government while the rest is form donation and rental income.
