We are prevailing against the COVID-19 outbreak. While most of us focus on getting by, such as securing essential supplies or planning the next home-cooked meal, the unsung heroes among us never took a day off – so important is their work to society's functioning that they can neither work from home nor avoid human contact. To support these heroes, Senior Citizen Home Safety Association (SCHSA) is launching a donation campaign to support the provision of 2 years' free services under Personal Emergency Link (PEL), Safety Phone or eCare Link® Mobile App to the elderly parents of the unsung heroes in 5 categories.
Amid the catastrophic epidemic and the cap. 599G, we, a group of professional and amateur dramatics, have made a seemingly ridiculous decision - to organise a performance at this hard time. We are extremely honoured to be able to perform an award-winning play written by Prof Poon Wai Sum, the present Dean of School of Drama of HKAPA. The play, in brief, is exploring the fear and hope different grassroots in HK faced before and after returning to China in 1997. With your monetary support, we can make this dream fulfilled. If it is fortunate that the target can be reached further, we can perfect this performance to another level with our concerted efforts. We need you, both physically present to watch our play, and financially.
I (MAK Chun Kong) have a dream which belongs to Hongkongers - be the first made-in-Hong-Kong swimmer in the history to swim across English Channel, as a pioneer in Hong Kong extreme swimming. To make this dream come true, I have been receiving three years of ice and ultramarathon swimming training with international standard. My physical condition is ready to swim across English Channel solo. In this challenge, the actual swimming distance will be over 40km. Water temperature is estimated to be 15-18°C. Through this challenge, I want to let the world know the "never give up" spirit from Hong Kong.
The trees on the earth are declining rapidly. Trees will disappear on the earth in about 300 years. If we do not take any action, we may no longer survive on the earth in the future. Many people are aware of the problem, but they do not know how to start to solve the problem. One of the solutions is to increase the number of trees by planting trees. I hope that I can use crowdfunding to raise funds so that I can hold a coloring contest. Please save trees and save earth with colours.
The Extraordinary Fairies is a children book that offers a holistic and beautiful interpretation of pregnancy losses mums and children. The author Orchid Bloom and the support group Hope Hong Kong would like to raise HKD100,000 through the sale of the book to bring in professional counselling training from the U.K. to HK, to provide emotional support to women and couples who struggle with infertility and repeated miscarriages. As someone who’s been through the dark journey, Bloom understands the toll of the challenges would take on one’s life and those closest to her. Sadly, it’s a taboo in the society even to raise such topics. The project also includes building a website to provide practical information on such topics as well as promote understanding and compassion among the general public.
Pakistan ranks 148 out of 149 in the latest Global Gender Gap Index, which means it is the second worst country on gender equality. Even basic needs such as those around menstrual hygiene are not met. There is stigma around menstruation, while 44% women are using rags, newspaper, or even leaves because they cannot afford sanitary pads. Girls are also forced to drop out from school during periods. At fair trade, we promote gender equality, therefore we have the fund raising campaign to support the basic needs of Pakistani women.
