Environmental and Social Change
Contributing to protecting and improving our outside world is the natural companion to healing our inner world and opening our hearts.
Here are some groups that work to improve the lives and futures of some of the most vulnerable members of our society and protect our land and seas.
These passionate dedicated community groups need financial support to continue and expand their work. Contributions directly support the creation of a better Hong Kong and a cleaner, kinder world for all.
