A large number of people need to undergo home isolation amid the severe pandemic situation in Hong Kong. As part of Sun Hung Kai Properties Limited’s (SHKP) efforts to combat the pandemic, its property management companies – Hong Yip Service Company Limited (Hong Yip) and Kai Shing Management Services Limited (Kai Shing) – have partnered with the Hong Kong Volunteers Against Coronavirus to deliver anti-pandemic supplies collected from the community to needy households. Hong Yip and Kai Shing will also fully support the government in its coming distribution of anti-pandemic packs. Managing a total of 338 residential developments, the two companies can help with the last-mile delivery of supplies to almost 800,000 people.

SHKP Chairman and Managing Director Raymond Kwok said: “Amid the changing pandemic situation, SHKP has strived to address the city’s pressing need for isolation facilities, communication networks in those facilities, vaccination centres, a stable supply of goods, and the timely handling of anti-pandemic materials from the mainland. We stand united to support Hong Kong’s fight against the pandemic. Recognizing the needs of people under home isolation, our property management companies have quickly made the best of their resources to support the distribution of anti-pandemic items and daily necessities to affected individuals. The supplies include materials provided by the Central Government and those collected by the Hong Kong Volunteers Against Coronavirus.”

Bunny Chan, the chief convenor of the Hong Kong Volunteers Against Coronavirus, said: “We are grateful to work with Hong Yip and Kai Shing, two of the largest property management companies in Hong Kong. Hong Yip and Kai Shing were the first in their industry to lend us a hand. Their support will provide important manpower resources to significantly expedite the distribution of supplies. We are also thankful for SHKP’s donation of materials and their timely assistance. They have set a role model for others. We believe that with the concerted effort of the community, Hong Kong will soon be able to beat the pandemic.”

Coordinating the distribution of supplies from different parties

Hong Yip and Kai Shing are two of the biggest property management companies in Hong Kong, managing 338 residential developments, which house close to 800,000 people in more than 200,000 units. Today Alkin Kwong, Chairman and Chief Executive of Hong Yip, and Chan Kam-fai, Managing Director of Kai Shing, met with Bunny Chan to kick off their collaboration. Both pledged to swiftly send the supplies collected by the Hong Kong Volunteers Against Coronavirus, part of which were donated by SHKP, to needy households. 

Meeting residents’ needs in the spirit of Building Homes with Heart

Both Hong Yip and Kai Shing are at the forefront of the anti-pandemic battle and support the government’s StayHomeSafe Scheme. In addition to stepping up disinfection in the residential developments, they strive to provide appropriate support and services to residents. Their initiatives included purchasing daily necessities for households undergoing home isolation and arranging for medical groups to offer an outreach vaccination service at clubhouses in the residential developments.

Anti-pandemic measures in shopping malls and office buildings

SHKP has also continued to step up anti-pandemic measures in its shopping malls and office buildings, including leveraging smart technology to disinfect its premises and improving the monitoring of air quality. Moreover, the Group recently provided free space in Millennium City 5, in Kwun Tong, and Landmark North, in North District, as venues for community vaccination centres. Both centres are also strongly supported by their property management arm.
