Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP) has hosted Poon Choi lunches and sent best wishes to elderly participants for nine straight years. The Poon Choi lunches were held earlier at Noah's Ark Hong Kong for about 1,700 seniors from Sai Kung, Wong Tai Sin and Yuen Long with support and hospitality provided by more than 100 SHKP volunteers as well as The Ark's Little Doctors. Lucky gift bags were distributed to all seniors attended while red packets were also presented to the eldest participants. Some of the participants put on incredible performances at the talent show, including djembe drumming, softball dance, wushu and K-Pop dance.
Set up by the SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation, the undergraduate scholarship scheme at Guizhou University entered its third phase in 2018. To take the collaboration to the next level, Deputy Secretary of the Guizhou University Party Committee Linghu Caitao previously led a delegation to visit SHKP's headquarters, elaborating the further studies and career prospects of graduates as well as sharing how beneficiary families now lead a better life. SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation Executive Director Amy Kwok was pleased with the results and revealed that the Foundation is currently preparing a cross-campus exchange platform for scholarship graduates to share their career achievements and stories in a bid to encourage other SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation scholarship students to study hard and make positive contributions to the society in the future.
