Cardboard Collectors Shine Hong Kong
Our church is joining YWAM Tuen Mun to serve Hong Kong’s cardboard collectors through its “Shine Hong Kong” initiative to find, meet and bring light to all the cardboard collectors working in Hong Kong,
There are approximately 4,000-7,000 cardboard collectors across the city who get paid around HK$0.7-HK$1 per kg of cardboard collected, working over 10 hours a day with their illness and old aged bodies, under the scorching sun and torrential rain to meet their daily needs.
We would like to invite our congregation to join this citywide project to not only bring material gifts to the cardboard collectors, but also to give them dignity and respect as we meet and interact with them!
We’ll join YWAM Tuen Mun to provide and distribute the Shine Hong Kong Kits to all the cardboard collectors in Hong Kong. That is
a) to sponsor a kit (each cost HK$95 a pack, consisting of masks, hand sanitizers, band-aids, working gloves, etc.)
b) to pack the kits
c) to go out to distribute in the Central & Western district and share with YWAM Tuen Mun how it goes (e.g. our outreach, stories and photos)
This is best done as a team through House Church.
Our packing days are Wed 8th and Fri 10th Dec 7:30pm.
Our distribution days are Sat 11th Dec 10:30am-2pm and Sun 12th Dec 3:30pm-7pm.
