AIM:

  • to raise awareness on poverty in Hong Kong
  • to improve the lives of people through donations of items
slide3

Hong Kong is Asia’s “World City”. All of us enjoy comfortable lives, getting whatever we need whenever we want. Yet, there are people within our very community who can barely afford 3 meals a day - most of us don’t even worry about whether we’re able to purchase food. Poverty exists here. The gap between the rich and poor is getting wider.

PAINTING A PICTURE: POVERTY IN HONG KONG

one in six children go hungry because their parents cannot afford to buy food.

There is a “deterioration of family relationships” because children quarrel over the lack of food.

144 400 families in HK below the poverty line:
