Coronavirus: Mask shortage among city’s most vulnerable has wealthy Hongkongers taking matters into their own hands

Started with two private donors just four weeks ago, our emergency family relief campaign now tallies at $1 million in funds and supplies.

Over 2,000 targeted families throughout Hong Kong will receive our SOUL Gifts, which include:

  1. An immunity boost (nutritious food & drinks)
  2. A hygiene kit (liquid soap, new towels, sanitizer and face mask)
  3. Books & games for both kids & adults.

Thanks to 34 corporate, foundation and private donors for answering our urgent calls to scale our effort!

Your Turn, Be a Family Cupid!
