Designated Funds

Benefactors Fund

The "Benefactors Fund” aims at providing temporary financial assistance to the service users of our Society with imminent needs. Applications have to be assessed and submitted by social workers of HKFWS and approved by the Secretary of the Fund.

The Fund comprises 2 schemes, "the Grant Assistance Scheme" and "the Loan Assistance Scheme". The Fund supported needy individuals and families mainly on their basic living expenses, rent, furniture and psychiatric treatment expenses, etc.

To raise the public and sponsors' awareness and understanding of the Fund, a booklet which features stories of beneficiaries was published. It helps to illustrate how the Fund has helped the families to get through the critical moments during their hardships.

CIS Khim Houng Lee Education Fund

The CIS Khim Houng Lee Education Fund was set up to pay tribute to Madame Khim and to honor the teachers, parents and students of the Chinese International School (CIS) who have been making continuous support in fund raising and offering tangible support to motivate the deprived students to continue their studies.

In the past year, most of the beneficiaries were primary and secondary students. Among them, about half of the beneficiaries came from single parent families, their parents were divorced or separated. Among all the beneficiaries, some of them were living with parents who have been suffering from mental illness. The fund provided essential support to help the children in adversity to continue their studies.

Apart from providing financial support to the deprived students, students from the Chinese International School also participated in voluntary services for the community. They also offered free English tutorial classes to deprived students.
