Oxfam Lai See Donation 2021
A total of 198 students and parents participated in the Oxfam Lai See 2021, which raised $29,750 in total. Queen’s College won the School Fundraising Award (Secondary School) and the Highest Student Participation Rate Award (Secondary School). The fund was used to support local and overseas poverty alleviation and relief efforts. One of the local poverty alleviation efforts is the “Oxfam's Food Support Project for Low-Income Families” scheme.
“Oxfam's Food Support Project for Low-Income Families” collaborated with Sharing Kitchen, Concerning CSSA and Low Income Alliance, Hong Kong Dietitians Association and United Christian Nethersole Community Health Service. Oxfam aims to provide 600 low-income families that have children with nutritious meal packages for over two years in four batches. Starting from June 2021, Oxfam has extended its service to the elderly who live alone. Furthermore, part-time jobs opportunities were created for low-income women to help prepare meal packages.
The award ceremony was successfully held on August 15, 2021. The chairman of the 2021/2022 Social Service Club, Wong Wai Chiu Wesley, received the award on behalf of the school.
