Operation Santa Claus – 35 Years of Giving Spirit
***Please support Operation Santa Claus
Operation Santa Claus was jointly established by the South China Morning Post and Radio Television Hong Kong to connect the local community with worthwhile charities. Since 1988, OSC has brought joy, goodwill and raised HK$353 million to support 323 charitable projects.
Before every Christmas, Operation Santa Claus launches a public fundraising campaign to celebrate the season of caring, sharing and giving to those who may be less fortunate. Through the generosity of our donors and supporters, Operation Santa Claus selects and funds charitable projects that focus on children and youth, elderly, community, physical and mental disabilities, medical, and environment.
Please join us in supporting the Hong Kong community during this festive season by donating to Operation Santa Claus and share the holiday spirit!
Bethune House Migrant Women’s Refuge is a community-driven temporary shelter for migrant domestic women (MDW) in crisis. It is a registered charity in Hong Kong established in 1986.
We provide food, accommodation and other forms of assistance to these women who are deprived of the means to survive because they are not allowed to work while their legal cases are on-going.
If you fund Bethune House, you are helping reduce the vulnerabilities and marginalization of our migrant domestic workers who are an integral part of the HK society. By helping us, we can continue to shelter, support and care for women in need.
Caring for Our Carers
There is a dearth of services in Hong Kong for migrant domestic workers, especially those who are temporarily unemployed. This was very apparent during the COVID-19 fifth wave. This is where service providers such as Bethune House Migrant Women's Refuge come in. Bethune House provides shelter, food, and other necessities to migrant domestic workers in distress, some with babies. Unable to work, Bethune House supports them until they get back on their feet. Bethune House even sheltered COVID-19 positive migrant workers. Through OSC’s support, we will be able to continue and expand our shelter and medical provisions, case and welfare assistance, Mental Health and Wellness activities, Life and Work skills trainings.

Women In Sports Empowered Hong Kong Limited (WISE) envisions a world where women and girls can thrive without limitations. Our mission is to educate, empower and connect women and girls to realize their aspirations through sports and lead active, meaningful and self-fulfilled lives. We use sports as a tool for gender empowerment to drive the equality agenda in all areas such as workplace, education, community, and advocate enhancing women and girls’ leadership in and through sport, with the aim to achieve gender equality and a diverse and inclusive culture in Hong Kong.
Yeah! Girls Stand Up!
Sports are among the best ways to support youth’s physical, mental and social health.
Harmful behaviors such as bullying, and symptoms of mental health distress have increased among youth. One reason for anti-social behaviors is lack of academic confidence and satisfaction, while the pandemic has reduced many youths’ social interactions.
Yeah! Girls Stand Up! combines sports with education on emotional regulation and anti- bullying. We aim to support girls to get active for wellbeing, develop positive mindsets and coping mechanisms for negative emotions and understand personal space and rights. Ultimately, we aim to enhance girls’ self-esteem while fostering positive relationships.
