Christian Action, headed by a Sai Kung resident, is an outstanding charity that deserves everyone’s support. You will get a chance on March 17. Show up at the Clearwater Bay Golf & Country Club, which will be open to the public for CA’s Three-Legged Charity Walk. All money raised will go to services for under-privileged and disabled children in Hong Kong and Qinghai, Tibet.
Cheung Ang Siew-mei, who lives at Ho Chung, heads Christian Action. It has two main operations: services for migrant workers who get into difficulty in Hong Kong (counseling, paralegal help with Government, hostel stay) and services for orphaned and poor children at Qinghai on the Tibetan plateau (hostel, education, medical care).
On March 17 a large slice of the great and good of Hong Kong’s charity scene will be present. DJ and actor Sammy Leung will attend as “Caring Ambassador”. Artist Jeanie Leung will be “Caring Illustrator”. Clowns will be falling about and children, many disabled, will be playing games.
