【Hong Kong, 1st March, 2022】 In view of the severe outbreak of the COVID-19 in Hong Kong recently, Hip Shing Hong (Holdings) Company Limited (“Hip Shing Hong”), Fong Shu Fook Tong Foundation and Fong’s Family Foundation announced to donate a total of HK$500,000 to Tung Wah Group of Hospitals Fong Shu Chuen Social Service Building in an effort to assist it in stepping up its preventive measures against the pandemic. To join hands with the community to further fight against the epidemic, they are also donating The Hong Kong Society for the Aged (“SAGE”) anti-pandemic supplies and services equivalent to a value of HK$1.25 million, which include the offer of 6,700 boxes of RAZE Antibacterial Masks, and the provision of RAZE Professional Antibacterial Coating Service for 76 rooms in three of its elderly homes.
Mr. David FONG, Managing Director of Hip Shing Hong (Holdings) Company Limited and Chairman of Fong Shu Fook Tong Foundation and Fong’s Family Foundation, said, “Hong Kong is our home. Amid the surging fifth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hip Shing Hong adheres to its commitment to corporate social responsibility by providing timely assistance to the underprivileged and people in need. We are also concerned that the elderly people, who belong to the high-risk group in the pandemic, particularly need additional protection. With our support for the elderly homes via Tung Wah Group of Hospitals and SAGE, we hope to relieve their urgent needs, as well as alleviating the community’s pressure on tackling the pandemic crisis. Besides making a donation to Tung Wah Group of Hospitals, the RAZE Antibacterial Masks and RAZE Professional Antibacterial Coating Service that we are offering SAGE adopt a cutting-edge germ-killing photocatalyst technology to provide the elderly beneficiaries with long-term extra protection. The masks serve the functions to filter and kill bacteria and viruses effectively while the photocatalyst coating works well to inactivate the coronavirus, protecting the elderly’s space for up to half a year.”
Mr. TAM Chun Kwok, Kazaf, Chairman of Tung Wah Group of Hospitals, said, “During the 5th wave of the coronavirus infection situation, TWGHs has received HK$500,000 from Fong Shu Fook Tong Foundation and Fong’s Family Foundation. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Mr. David FONG for his generous support to our colleagues who are working in Fong Shu Chuen Social Service Building. The funds will be used for arranging temporary accommodation in the hotels and procuring additional protective equipment for our staff, which will definitely ease the worries of our staff involved and their family members. The generous support from Mr. Fong and the Foundations came as a godsend to us, especially increased our frontline team’s morale in this difficult situation. We will keep on serving the elderly with dedication, professionalism and perseverance.”
Dr. Kim MAK, Chairman of The Hong Kong Society for the Aged, said, “SAGE appreciates the donation of anti-epidemic supplies and provision of services from Hip Shing Hong, Fong Shu Fook Tong Foundation and Fong’s Family Foundation during the severe condition of COVID-19. We are grateful to join hand in hand to protect the elderly in the current wave of the epidemic. For underprivileged elderly and those lack of family support, purchasing masks has made their onerous financial burden even heavier. SAGE will deliver the 6,700 boxes of RAZE Antibacterial Masks received to elderly people living alone or living with another elderly for better protection. On the other hand, RAZE Professional Antibacterial Coating Service will be applied to 76 rooms designated for frail elderly residents in three of our elderly homes, providing clean and safety living environment to ensure the health of the residents.”
The onslaught of the latest wave of the pandemic has caused unprecedented challenges to Hong Kong. Hip Shing Hong is committed to standing together with the Hong Kong people to battle against the COVID-19 and to ride out the difficult times.
