The Community Chest calls for donations

14th March, 2012

There are over 1.26 million people living in poverty in Hong Kong, and we definitely need more donations, said The Community Chest Community Relations Manager Louie Hang-shan Tong yesterday.

Tong said that there are many needy in Hong Kong and The Community Chest subsidize their member social welfare agencies with the funds they have in order to help all those people in need.

“We currently have over 150 member social welfare agencies, which include the Hong Kong Red Cross, Caritas Hong Kong, and Salvation Army etc. They cover around 2,360 service spots in Hong Kong, and this enables them to reach millions of people in need,” said Tong.

Tong stressed that the administrative cost of The Community Chest is subsidized by The Hong Kong Jockey Club. She pointed out that The Community Chest is one of the very few fund-raising organization in the world that can assure “100% of the funds raised are allocated to beneficiaries without deducting any administrative expenses.”

Tong said, “in order to help the disadvantaged, our fund-raising target of the current year is around HKD 245 million, and we are working very hard to meet our target.”

She further continued, “we are calling for donations. Everyone is welcome to participate in our voluntary work, or to make donations to The Community Chest. We are more than happy to have you joining us.”
