COVID-19 has brought uncertainty and immense change to all our lives. Like many charities, The Society for the Promotion of Hospice Care (SPHC) has seen a significant decline in donation because our largest annual fundraising event – Hike for Hospice – cannot be held due to group size limitations during the pandemic. While it is still not possible to stage events involving large numbers of people, we are excited to announce the launch of a Virtual Hike for Hospice in coming April 2021. The Virtual Hike for Hospice allows participants to run or walk at any hiking trails you like with the flexibility and convenience of hiking at any time, at their own pace and distance. While there is no longer a registration fee for the event, we encourage people to still sign up so we know they are participating and so they can set up an online fundraising page.

'Hong Kong Wild Birds Rescue Journal' is a picture book for senior primary students. The picture book revolves around conflicts between humans and common urban birds in Hong Kong. The picture book will enable students to self-learn knowledge of wildlife and nature, as well as invoking their interest in wildlife and nature conservation. Funding raised from this project will be used on publishing the picture books. The books will be issued to primary schools for free. Our team also hopes that by rolling out this crowd-funding project, more people will grow aware of the importance of environmental education.
