Did you know 1 in 5 people in Hong Kong live in poverty? Feeding Hong Kong works extra hard at this time of year to share the festive spirit and create a Christmas that everyone can enjoy. They currently support over 60 welfare centres in Hong Kong with regular food donations and with your help, They hope to be able to drop-off an extra special delivery to them this holiday season!

What is the Santa Sack campaign?

The Santa Sack campaign was launched in 2012 and the main aim is to provide extra food parcels to people in need in Hong Kong during the festive period. Feeding Hong Kong’s generous supporters have helped deliver 3,000 Santa Sacks that benefited almost 8,000 people in need over the last three years. Their target for 2015 is to deliver 2,000 Santa Sacks for individuals in need and 20 Holiday Hampers for charity kitchens. It is a tall order but with your help, we can achieve it!
