Community Support

Supporting our community has always been a core objective. We see great value in helping those in need and returning to the community some of the goodwill that has made Hong Kong so successful. We have directly supported and sponsored a number of causes which primarily assist with health and welfare programs but also support local sport and cultural pursuits. We have also provided financial support during global crises on an ad hoc basis. Our commitment to society and quality of life begins at work…

The Family Council launched the Family Friendly Award scheme to promote the adoption of family friendly policies. Should career success be no more than a guilty pleasure, pursued at the expense of domestic happiness, or is there a balance between work and play? We think so and we are proud to announce that we have received a Distinguished Family-Friendly Employers Award every year since the scheme was launched, demonstrating “impressive practices in the implementation of family-friendly employment policies and in the promotion of family core values.’

The idea for The Community Chest began toward the end of the 1960s, as many international agencies began to leave, creating a gap in the social welfare system. Subsequently, a group of community leaders came up with the idea of a “community fund” to raise money on behalf of diverse community support charities, thus eliminating competition in their fund-raising efforts and providing them with the resources to focus on service delivery. Richards Basmajian have supported the Hong Kong Community Chest since 1991.

Emerging from the Operation Breakthrough initiative set up by the Hong Kong Police, The Pandas are a new rugby team, developed to encourage a greater sense of belonging through participation in team sports.

Their inaugural season was a massive success – they won every game played. The Club now has three mens’ teams and one women’s team.

Mother's Choice is a local charity serving pregnant teenagers in Hong Kong. The charity gives hope to these vulnerable girls by providing a temporary home during their pregnancies thereby allowing them to carry their babies to term, and arranging for the children to be adopted by a local or overseas family.
