HONG KONG, CHINA – Media OutReach – 25 June 2020 – The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is pummelling the local economy deeper
into recession. With the unemployment rate hitting a 15-year high, many grass-roots
citizens have seen their income significantly reduced, which is profoundly
affecting their livelihoods. This year in the approach to Tuen Ng Festival, Chinachem Group (the
Group) is co-operating
with the Foodlink Foundation to distribute
2,500 food packs through 11 non-profit organisations. The food packs will be sent to people in
need in the Tsuen Wan, Kwai Tsing and Tung Chung areas, accompanied by Tuen Ng Festival
greetings.

Chinachem’s Volunteer Team visited one of the non-profit
organizations to deliver the food packs in person to 100 Tsuen Wan residents on
24 June. The rest of the food packs will be distributed to the needy through
the partnering non-profit organisations next month. 

 

Wong Hung Han, Chief Operating Officer of Chinachem Group said, “The
Group has an enduring commitment to corporate social responsibility; it has
been paying close attention to the progress of the epidemic as well as the
needs of citizens. Having earlier donated 200,000 masks to the community, we
have launched another round of support in
co-operation with the Foodlink Foundation to deliver HK$500,000 worth of food
packs to vulnerable citizens, in an effort to combat the impact of the coronavirus
pandemic alongside them.”

 

Fulfilling
its commitment to make a positive impact on the community and create shared
value, the Group has also launched an internal food donation programme, setting
up a canned and dried food collection point at its head office to encourage staff members to participate in this
meaningful event and disseminate the message of sharing with the needy.
