Operation Santa Claus (OSC) continued to promote the spirit of helping and caring to benefit those in need in the city, raising more than HK$16.7 million in donations, and overcoming another year of challenges. The funds raised by this year’s OSC campaign will be shared amongst 15 beneficiaries across the city that serve more than 12,000 people and support disadvantaged communities, including charities serving the causes of children and youth, the community, the environment, medical, elderly, and those with physical and mental disabilities.
This year’s theme of ‘Sports and All’ featured a wide range of exciting fundraising activities. Over 60 corporate and school donors, and thousands more continued showing their generous support to the campaign. OSC celebrated the conclusion of this year’s campaign by announcing four awards to noteworthy corporations and schools for their fundraising efforts. They are:
● Top Corporate Fundraiser – Morgan Stanley
● Top School Fundraiser – DSC International School

On Wednesday's Backchat we're talking about the government's proposal to tighten up rules on ‘job-hopping’ for foreign domestic workers.
A public consultation is underway on whether employment agencies should be made to tell helpers that authorities would only approve them breaking contracts prematurely under ‘exceptional circumstances’, and make it clear that they’d have to leave Hong Kong and get a new visa before they can come back to work for a new employer.
Migrants have complained about the proposal, calling it unfair and discriminatory.
How big of a problem is job-hopping among domestic workers? Is it unfair to tighten regulations against the practice? Would it actually discourage job-hopping?
After 9:45, we'll look at a study on how happy we all are at the workplace .
Let us know what you think on our Facebook page - Backchat on RTHK Radio 3, email us at email@example.com, or give us a call on 233 88 266.
