ImpactHK started as an initiative to do one act of kindness per month to help the homeless and the less fortunates in Hong Kong by giving out daily necessities. Today, as the number of volunteer grows, they do regular Kindness Walks almost everyday to make bigger impact.
Very few people are aware of the homeless situation in Hong Kong. A study by CityU and Homeless Outreach Population Estimation counted that there are actually around 1,600 street sleepers without a stable or permanent home. .
The major causes are the skyrocketing rents in Hong Kong and the lengthy public housing waiting time. On the other hand, homeless shelters only allow them to stay for a limited duration. It’s a pity how the condition of homelessness still exists within the affluent city of Hong Kong. #KindnessMatters #GivoGlobal
