We are committed to enriching lives and promoting diversity and inclusion in our communities. We actively engage our staff and their families and friends in expressing care and love to those in need. We have also launched various pillar programs to enhance the wellbeing of wider community.
Hang Lung As One Volunteer Teams
With a sincere desire to return some of the tremendous support we receive from our customers and the community at large, we encourage our staff to engage in community service programs through the Hang Lung As One Volunteer Team. To-date, we are supporting the work of 12 active teams in 10 of the cities in which we have a presence (Hong Kong, Shanghai, Shenyang, Jinan, Wuxi, Tianjin, Dalian, Kunming, Wuhan, and Hangzhou).
In 2021, Hang Lung As One volunteer teams have organized over 130 volunteer activities in Hong Kong and mainland China involving more than 1,800 staff volunteers and clocking up in the region of about 14,500 service hours in service of community needs in the areas of diversity and inclusion, youth development, care for the elderly, and environmental protection.
Caring for the Elderly
In 2021, the Company partnered with the Hong Kong Young Women’s Christian Association (HKYWCA) to launch a three-year program, Hang Lung x HKYWCA Love·No·Limit, to offer support to dementia patients and their carers, and to build an inclusive, dementia-friendly environment in the community. Volunteers contributed over 400 service hours with more than 900 in attendance benefiting from the services offered in the first year.
To equip our staff with a recognized skillset, the Program will also provide training for 500 of our front-line staff so that they can offer appropriate assistance to those in need in their daily work. Colleagues completing the training will become “Dementia Friends” a designation recognized by the Social Welfare Department.
Partnering with the Hong Kong Federation of Women's Centres, we invited underprivileged working women to become instructors and teach our volunteers how to make handicrafts. This not only enhanced their self-confidence and sense of value, but also encouraged them to step into society with full faith in themselves.
We also invited underprivileged women to participate in outings and workshops to take a relaxing breather from their hectic lives. Gift bags including meal coupons and anti-epidemic items were distributed to provide tangible support to alleviate their burdens.
