Youth Matters
Christmas Sharing
No matter what our faith calling, Christmas has come to symbolize giving and sharing, not only to friends and family, but also to those less fortunate than ourselves.

Yesterday the Ng Teng Fong Charitable Foundation once again showed its support to 50 NGOs in Hong Kong, providing donations that would support their continued service to the needy. Included were five social enterprises in Tin Shui Wai to meet the employment needs of economically vulnerable young people and women, while also supporting Youth Business Hong Kong to promote entrepreneurship to help youth become economically independent.

We thank all our partners, friends and collaborators for their sharing the Christmas spirit. Not just at Christmas, but the whole year through!

Wishing you and your families, the Blessings of the Season.
