When asked about their motivations to join the Board of the Foundation, Thierry says: “I joined the Foundation because I heard of their actions to help the working poor improve their lives and I felt that getting involved in it would be one of the most efficient way for me to give back to Hong Kong, my community.”
Celine says "1 person over 5 leaves under the poverty line in Hong Kong*". I have been surprised by this dramatic figure and amazed to know that the Foundation were actively working on helping people in needs by allowing them having affordable but balanced meals and more importantly finding better jobs.

Ms. Lau, how to move on after a job loss
Ms. Lau, 47, became unemployed after the company that she worked for ended its business in June 2018. She came to us for help. Thanks to the assistance of the Foundation’s volunteers, she successfully applied for a job as a pet food salesperson.
Ms. Ko, a successful change for a better job
Ms. Ko is 31 years old. She left her position as a saleswoman a few months ago in search for a better place. The social workers in Tsuen Wan noticed she enjoyed interacting with people, and introduced her to a job offer as a cashier and waiter in Lai Chi Kok. She is very happy with her new job and earns a much better salary than before.
