Feed The Hungry
The fifth wave of the pandemic continues spreading in Hong Kong. This has had a profound impact on the economy and various local industries. The income of grassroots families has plummeted and their lives are over-extended mercilessly. The government will issue HK$5,000 consumption vouchers in April. Join our campaign to feed the hungry!
Ms. Leung's Story
Ms. Leung, a single mother lives with her 14 year-old twins in a 90 square foot sub-divided unit and presently their lives and circumstances are seriously stretched. For two years now, she has been picking up ’Emergency Food Packs’ every month at Christian Action’s Mong Kok Service Center, which include rice, oil and canned food.
Ms. Leung mentioned that there was a wave of rice-grabbing in supermarkets in the early days of the pandemic and she was not worried, since the ‘Emergency Food Programme’ would provide her with rice every month. "Rice is very important for us, because my two sons are very active and experience growth spurts, maybe in a period of rapid development, so need to eat rice at every meal to satisfy their hunger." Ms. Leung disclosed that the monthly rent for her sub-divided unit, water and electricity bills come to more than HK$7,000, which takes most of her income. She was very grateful for the donations from various donors in the community, which allow her to receive food packs every month and thus reduce her economic burden.
