Having been providing blood transfusion service in Hong Kong for more than half a century, Hong Kong Red Cross is facing a problem of insufficient facilities and equipment to meet the rising demand for blood transfusion services in recent years, and donor chairs are now in most urgent need of replacement. The aging of donor chairs has caused a reduction in the number of chairs. Though some of the foldable donor chairs of the mobile teams have been mobilized to fill gap, we are still facing difficulties in coping with the increasing demand in the long run. We hope to raise HK$200,000 and purchase 10 new model electronic donor chairs in the coming year. Please act now and help us replace our donor beds. Your generous support will help sustain our operation needs and encourage more successful blood donation!
Since December 2016, over one million people have crossed the Myanmar-Bangladesh border, fleeing violence in northern areas of Myanmar’s Rakhine State. Most of them are women and children and depends on humanitarian aid for survival entirely. We hope to raise HK$500,000 in order to provide life-saving assistance to the people affected by the violence. The Hong Kong Red Cross has deployed eight healthcare volunteers and one clinical psychologist to Bangladesh from September 2017 to January 2018. Please join hands with us to support people in Myanmar and Bangladesh through the rough patch!
Severe hunger is threatening the lives of millions across Africa and Middle East, over 50 million people are affected by the food crisis.

To help mitigate the risks of large-scale loss of life due to food crisis, your support is essential for us. Please help us to raise HK$500,000 to sustain our efforts in providing timely and multi-sectoral assistance, including emergency food, nutritional supplements for children, water & sanitation supplies, livelihoods support and health services in the affected countries.

To ensure the sick and temporarily disabled people can have access to mobility equipment, the Hong Kong Red Cross has been providing “Mobility Equipment Loan Service” since 1975 and offers a variety of mobility equipment, including wheelchairs to those in need at a low rate during their recovery period. In average, about 30 people are waiting in the queue each month. In view of the huge demand for wheelchair rental service due to the increasing population and aging population, we are hoping to raise HK$60,000 and purchase 50 wheelchairs in the year 2018-2019. The donation of HK$1,200 will be able to help us purchase an additional wheelchair and enable more patients in need to have access to the suitable mobility equipment during the recovery period.
