Begin the New Year with Love and Care

Due to the current social distancing restrictions, we may not be able to gather together during Chinese New Year. However, that doesn't mean we are not able to send our love and care to our family, friends and neighbours.

In spite of the challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Federation remains deeply committed to all our neighbourhoods, knowing that we are built up as a community because of our neighbours. Therefore, we will continue with our reunion lunches throughout Hong Kong, spearheaded by young people, as our small way to show our love, care and gratitude as we enter the Year of the Ox.

The "Neighbourhood First Reunion Lunch" is an annual programme, hosted by the Federation before the Chinese New Year, to send our warm blessings and care to the neighbourhoods. This year, teams of young volunteers will be mobilized to deliver readymade "pun choi" and lucky bags to more than 1,000 elderly and families in need on Saturday, 30 January 2021. We will also reach out through telephone and video calls and we are so pleased that the Director of Social Welfare, Mr. Gordon Leung Chung-tai, JP will also take part.

As we leave the challenging year just passed, let us begin the next with love and care together!
