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
● Most Creative Corporate Fundraiser – HKSH Medical Group
● Most Creative School Fundraiser – Shung Tak Catholic English College
Since its inception in 1988, OSC has raised more than $369 million for various charities in Hong Kong. Video highlights from OSC’s beneficiaries and award-winning donors are available here: https://oschk.org.
On Tuesday’s Backchat, we’re talking about a possible upgrade to the road network on Lantau Island.
The Secretary for Development, Bernadette Linn, has said the aim would be to promote sustainable development and secure better connections between the north and south sides of the island by improving transport infrastructure. The plan could involve bringing the old Tung Chung Road back into use and expanding sections of several other roads in stages, including South Lantau Road, Keung Shan Road and Tai O Road.
After 9:45, we’re going to be looking at a study led by scientists from the Baptist University on Covid-19 infection in the human body, which it's hoped could lead to more effective treatments for those with weak immune systems and who are unable to take the vaccine.
