The Ability to give is Empowering

Little efforts > great impacts 積少成多集腋成裘

A Saturday morning filled with love and positive energy. I left home a bit early so I could meet my friend from social enterprise Rolling Books James Chong, who is always inspiring and giving me so much energy. After the breakfast today, it’s proven that James and I are friends of life and death given that there are minimal social interactions in this city as it is struggling from the Coronavirus outbreak.

一個充滿了愛和正能量的星期六早晨。 我提早離開家,與社企Rolling Books 的James Chong會面,他總是鼓舞人心,給了我很多能量。 香港正遭受冠狀病毒傳播的影響,大家也減少了很任何社交活動。今天有幸和James兄共進早餐,足之證明我倆已是生死之交。

James and I met today because we were collecting the sanitising supplies donated by our member Arati Limbu who runs the baby supplies store in Central, Baby Basics and my good neighbour Yin Yan Kwan who manages Popa Classroom! They are the first to support us on this!

事實上今天和James見面主要是因為去收集物資捐給有需要的少數族裔家庭。感謝Baby Basics的Arati 和 好鄰居 Popa 教室的Yin Yan 第一時間伸出援手捐出兒童口罩、酒精搓手液及圖書給少數族裔家庭的小朋友。

Hong Kong Momtrepreneurs is proud to help promote and collect materials donation to support ethnic minority community in Hong Kong – an initiative led by Rolling Books, People Service Centre and WEDO GLOBAL!

The Ability to help is Empowering. 施比受更有福!

香港創業媽媽很榮幸能支持由Rolling Books民社服務中心WEDO GLOBAL牽頭發起的一項目,支持香港少數族裔社區的物質捐贈!
