Thank you for your Great Support to the Sichuan Earthquake Operation

Since the Sichuan earthquake happened on 12 May, we have received a total donation over HK$1.27 billion from individual and corporate donors. Hundreds of thousands receipts were involved including individual donors (staff, customers and members) networked by over 800 companies. The workload for handling huge amount of receipts was exceeded the limited administrative capacity of our organization. We are grateful to have very great patience from our donors during the period. All donation receipts have been sent out in late November. Hong Kong Red Cross would like to express our deepest gratitude to every single donor for your generous support.

Any enquiries on the donation receipts, please feel free to contact 28020021
