CPA Australia donates fresh vegetables and 20,000 food packs to Food Angel to help the vulnerable

HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 22
February 2022 – With the
aggressive resurgence of the pandemic sweeping through Hong Kong – the
vulnerable community continues to suffer from the drastic increase of prices in
fresh vegetable and other essential food items. In response to this, CPA
Australia Greater China Divisional Council, Past Presidents and its committee
members in Hong Kong announces a joint effort in donating fresh vegetables and more
than 20,000 pre-cooked meal boxes to the elderly, the low-income families and
the vulnerable community residing in the Sham Shui Po district with the help of
Food Angel.

CPA Australia expects to feed thousands of
people with fresh vegetables and hot nutritious food for the next couple of
days

Since the Chinese New Year, Hong Kong has suffered from a shortage of
fresh food supply which resulted in soaring grocery prices. This intensified the financial burden of
many low-income families with many confessing that they have been living solely
on plain rice.

Concerned with the struggles of the
vulnerable community, CPA Australia Divisional Council, Past Presidents and
Committee members hoped to make use of this opportunity to support Food Angel
in providing more fresh vegetables and pre-cooked meal boxes for those in
needs. This donation contributed by this group of CPA Australia members is
expected to feed thousands of people with fresh vegetables and hot nutritious food
for the next couple of days in this cold weather.

One of CPA Australia’s greatest focuses is to
make a positive impact to the community we live in and we have always advocated
the importance of formulating precise allocation and appropriate dissemination
when it comes to community support. Through this community outreach, CPA
Australia hopes that Hong Kong will recover and recuperate from the 5th
wave very soon.
