With the sky rocketing property rate and inflation in Hong Kong in recent years, families suffering from poverty had increased. Manager of Community Relations of The Community Chest of Hong Kong Louie Tong said that poverty in family was like a heredity disease.

Tong said that the standard value for a single person family to be defined as under poverty was a monthly income less than $3210, while the line for a 4-membered family was a monthly income less than $9000. “That is barely enough for their basic living, while some may also need to apply for social subsidy,” she said.

She continued, “Poverty in family is just a heredity disease, as children from those families cannot get proper education, their poverty continues on from generation to generation. That’s their unavoidable fate,” She added that the rent rate has risen a lot these years, which in turn made their lives more difficult.

Community Chest has helped these families by providing them with better living environment. Tong said, “The target fund we hope to collect this year is 245 million, which may help up to 31 million people,” Community Chest will continue on to help the poor families in Hong Kong, to save them from the darkness of poverty.
