Fosun Named “Caring Company”, “Caring Organisation”, and “Heart to Heart Company” in Hong Kong SAR
On 15 February, the “Hong Kong Social Service Expo 2023” organized by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS) was held at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) in Wan Chai, Hong Kong SAR. Fosun International Limited and Fosun Foundation were named “Caring Company” and “Caring Organisation”, respectively. Recently, Fosun was also awarded the "Heart to Heart Company" logo and a certificate of appreciation by the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups in recognition of Fosun's unremitting efforts in actively fulfilling its corporate social responsibilities and serving the local community.
Fosun assists Hong Kong in fighting against the epidemic and works diligently to safeguard people’s health
When the fifth wave of the epidemic broke out in Hong Kong at the beginning of February 2022, Fosun Foundation immediately announced to donate anti-epidemic materials worth HK$10 million, including rapid antigen test kits, masks, isolation gowns, and finger pulse oximeters, to the community in Hong Kong, and send the materials to non-profit organizations and grassroots communities in Hong Kong mainly assisting high-risk groups, including chronically ill patients, the elderly, children, frontline anti-epidemic workers, frontline service personnel, and grassroots families.
In fact, Fosun launched anti-epidemic operations in Hong Kong at the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak. Fosun joined hands with BioNTech, a German biotechnology company to develop the COVID-19 mRNA vaccine (COMIRNATY®), which was included in the government vaccination program in Hong Kong SAR and Macao SAR in March 2021, building a health protection barrier for Hong Kong citizens. Since 6 January 2023, the self-paid vaccination service for COMIRNATY® bivalent vaccine has been rolled out in Hong Kong SAR to offer more vaccine options for people in need.
Fosun actively participates in the volunteer service program, "Rice-Giving Scheme"
Due to the impact of the epidemic, the community in Hong Kong urgently needed to set up many volunteer teams to help distribute rice packs in the Neighbourhood Elderly Centres in Hong Kong. In 2022, Fosun and the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups cooperated again to set up a volunteer team in Hong Kong to personally distribute rice packs to the elderly, low-income people and families at the Society for Community Organization on Un Chau Street in Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong SAR to spread love.
The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups awarded Fosun International Limited and Fosun Foundation the "Heart to Heart Company" logo and a certificate of appreciation, thanking Fosun for its unconditional support to the promotion of youth volunteering in Hong Kong.
Run to Love global charity run, together for a better life
Adhering to the original aspiration of “Contribution to Society”, Fosun Foundation’s 2022 Run to Love global charity run kicked off in August, leaving footprints all over the world. Fosun's member companies and partners actively participated in the charity run in the United States, the United Kingdom, Portugal, Japan, Kenya and other countries, encouraging more people around them to participate in public welfare, devote themselves to public welfare, and actively undertake social responsibility.
Run to Love Hong Kong was held in September. Fosun’s employees in Hong Kong and employees of Fosun Wealth (formerly known as Fosun Hani) and Forte Hong Kong, member companies of Fosun, gathered in Hong Kong Park. Iris Law, Executive Chief Representative of Fosun Hong Kong and Macau Office and Ye Yunping, CIO of Fosun Wealth, delivered speeches before the run to cheer for all. The event also attracted much attention from citizens.
As a global enterprise rooted in China and a Hong Kong listed company for more than a decade, Fosun adheres to the original aspiration of "Self-improvement, Teamwork, Performance, and Contribution to Society" and always pays attention to the development of the community in Hong Kong. Fosun will continue to grow together with the community, do its utmost to provide assistance to the community, and continuously promote the inclusive development with the local community.
