Care for Hong Kong
In 2019, Caring for Children Foundation (CFCF) continues to serve the children in need with love and care. One of our new campaigns "Care for Hong Kong" aims to improve the living quality and mental well-being of the most deprived children living in sub-divided flats.
Through collaborating with various social welfare agencies, CFCF launched educational workshops and social activities for underprivileged children, such as "Creative Hearts", "Small Mind, Big Leader" and "Wishing Table" etc. Our ultimate goal is to widen these children's exposure to the beauty of this world, allowing them to discover their potentials.
Small Mind, Big Leader
At the end of 2019, CFCF launched "Small Mind, Big Leader" – a project branched from Care for Hong Kong initiative. Like the subject suggested, it is targeted to 6 to 9 years old children who lived in sub-divided flats. Through regular educational sessions and activities, we encourage children to come up with different tasks and lead our mentors to solve it. We hope to foster a correct moral value and instil a compassionate mind set in them.
CFCF aims to boost the children's confidence in optimizing their self-development, as well as enhancing their communication and interpersonal skills. Ultimately, we hope to groom the children such that when they grow up, they can take the lead to passing on our give to the next generation.
Hearts Against Virus
In late January 2020, Hong Kong suffered from COVID-19 outbreak. CFCF continues to support and give back to our community. We have organised "Hearts Against Virus" action to alleviate patients, elderly and families living in subdivided flats from the urgency of limited access to personal protective gears. Until now, CFCF has donated more than 120 thousand masks and 3 thousand sanitising packages, more than 10 thousand people have been benefited.
Care for Hong Kong, Share a Meal with Love
COVID-19 pandemic has pushed Hong Kong into a devastating recession. As more businesses are forced to temporarily or permanently closed, the unemployment rate is skyrocketing. Furloughed grassroots encounter huge challenge securing even just their daily needs.
To lend a hand to the struggling group, CFCF launched the project "Care for Hong Kong, Share a Meal with Love" in late April, which involves delivering meal boxes to the unemployed and low income families from different regions of Hong Kong. Meal boxes are distributed mainly in Prince Edward, To Kwa Wan, Kwun Tong, Jordan and North Point, which has a higher ratio of grassroots.
Besides, this project sources the meal boxes via local smaller food vendors, whom businesses are badly affected due to COVID-19 outbreak. Through this partnership we are providing almost 5 thousand meal boxes to those in need monthly and continue to support the reopening of the economy.
