By Minnie Yeung (Chief Representative, Hong Kong SAR PRC)

Hong Kong’s fight against COVID-19 continues with no end in sight. During this fight, we must support the frontline workers who are putting their health and lives at risk to protect us all. We must also support those working hard behind the scenes identify cases and minimize community transmission.

To recognize them and to show appreciation, Give2Asia and our local partners in Hong Kong SAR — in collaboration with the Hong Kong Hospital Authority —presented 3,000+ care packages to 17 hospital workers and laboratory staff at 17 public hospitals:

  • Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital
  • Queen Mary Hospital
  • Princess Margaret Hospital
  • Prince of Wales Hospital
  • Ruttonjee Hospital
  • Queen Elizabeth Hospital
  • The Duchess of Kent Children’s Hospital
  • Alice Ho Miu Ling Nethersole Hospital
  • Grantham Hospital
  • Tung Wah Hospital
  • Kwong Wah Hospital
  • North Lantau Hospital
  • Yan Chai Hospital
  • North District Hospital
  • Tuen Mun Hospital
  • United Christian Hospital
  • Caritas Medical Centre

We received many heartwarming responses from healthcare workers expressing their gratitude for the care packages. Here are a few:

“Thank you for sending our team the lovely gifts and appreciation letters. We are so grateful and encouraging for your support, love and care in this hard time fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic.” – Ms. PK Ng, Tuen Mun Hospital

“The items in the gift pack are useful and thoughtful, especially for someone who is working in UCH during such trying times. Let me express my thankfulness again for being recognized and I felt that we are not alone of fighting against the COVID-19.” – Ms. Angela Tsai, United Christian Hospital

“As a laboratory staff, unlike frontline staff, we have little interaction with the public. I deeply appreciate and am encouraged upon receiving the gift pack. It’s a great acknowledgment to our work.” – Ms. Wai Chi Wan, Queen Mary Hospital

“The gift pack is big and everyone in the lab reacted with a ‘Wow’. The gift brought surprise and smiles not only to myself, but also to my family.” -Mr. Wong Kwok Wing, North District Hospital
