HandsOn Hong Kong and Feeding Hong Kong have seen first-hand the huge increase in the number of people turning to charities for support and food assistance due to the COVID-crisis. The fall-out from job losses and rising food prices have impacted many in Hong Kong, where 7.2% of the population is currently unemployed.
Helping our most vulnerable groups to re-build will take a community-wide effort—and one that each of us can be part of.
CARE DELIVERED is a food distribution project jointly run by HandsOn and Feeding Hong Kong, that mobilizes caring volunteers to deliver Care Packages directly to the doorsteps of those that need them most. Our teams have coordinated with the five other charities below to identify families and individuals that can most benefit from long-term food support and compassion from the community. They will receive one of these packages each month for a whole year, thanks to Operation Santa Claus.
We turn to you—our volunteers—to help us deliver these packs in the coming months! Look out for opportunities on the HandsOn calendar. Signing up helps both communities in need and the under-resourced charities working tirelessly to support them.
Each package includes staples such as rice, noodles, cooking oil, canned fish and meat, oatmeal and nuts.
Thank you so much for your support. The Hong Kong community is truly stronger when we act TOGETHER!
