HongKong Land's three initiatives to combat housing-related social issues

One initiative targets low-income families. 

Three new projects were announced as part of HongKong Land HOME FUND’s efforts to alleviate housing-related social issues in the country.

The design, production, and distribution of ergonomically designed furniture was the first project revealed by the group, as this will be done in partnership with the Jockey Club Design Institute for Social Innovation of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, The Salvation Army, Caritas and HKSKH Lady MacLehose Centre. The products will be distributed to 2,000 children in Kowloon City, To Kwa Wan, Kwai Chung, and the Eastern District.

Another project is aimed at supporting low-income families. Accomplished in partnership with Caritas, the goal is to provide short-term accommodation, social and healthcare services, job opportunities and food to low-income families. More than 3,000 room nights will be provided to a minimum of 100 people by hostels of Caritas and their collaborating partners over a year. 

Collaborations with eleven HongKong Land business partners were also announced as part of efforts to spur the renovation of the Christian Zheng Sheng College. The private boarding school is dedicated to supporting teenagers with drug and behavioural problems. Renovations are set to focus on the kitchens and living areas, with the aim of providing a better environment for students.

The announcement comes weeks after celebrating its first year anniversary in November.
