Care for the Underprivileged

The Group believes in good corporate citizenship and actively listens and responds to the needs of society. Through our multifaceted efforts to connect with the community, we are working towards building a harmonious society. For many consecutive years, the Group has been designated a Caring Company by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service, which recognizes the Group's dedication to caring for the underprivileged and giving back to society.

 

Grassroots Housing Needs

To help alleviate the housing shortage and improve the living environment of the underprivileged, the Group has worked together with non-government organizations to provide transitional housing, including lending a site in Tung Tau, Yuen Long, to the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Welfare Council for the construction and operation of United Court. Expected to be completed in 2022, United Court will offer 1,800 units, which will ultimately benefit around 5,000 low-income families and 10,000 people. 

The Group has also donated land to the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Welfare Council to build Hong Kong’s first integrated service facility to promote intergenerational harmony. During the pandemic, SHKP allocated funds to support the Subdivided Unit Subsidy Programme, providing timely financial support and emergency relief to residents living in subdivided units.


Volunteer Efforts to Support the Community

The Group is a keen supporter of volunteering as an effective way to bring people from all walks of life together to support and connect with the community. Formed in 2003 by the Group, the SHKP Volunteer Team organizes festive activities and distributes daily necessities through the Building Homes with Heart Caring Initiative. During the pandemic, the Group has also been spreading love and care to people in need in the community by donating surgical masks to social welfare organizations and distributing anti-pandemic items.

SHKP volunteers use their professional skills to do basic home renovations for underprivileged families and elderly people who have been relocated because of redevelopment and address their urgent needs. To date, about 2,800 SHKP volunteers have together contributed over 100,000 hours of service on various volunteer projects.

The Building Homes with Heart Caring Initiative also provides immediate assistance to individuals or families in financial difficulty as a result of accidents or natural disasters.


Filling love and harmony in the community

A strong believer in social inclusion, the Group is committed to providing diverse experiences, such as free tours of the sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck and music concerts, to broaden the horizons of the underprivileged and facilitate their inclusion in society. By providing such experiences, SHKP shares its love and positive energy with the community.
