2016 Charity – The Hub HK

The Hub HK is a children and youth centre based in Sham Shui Po. It works to help children who are socially and economically disadvantaged. 209,000 children in Hong Kong live below the poverty line. In 2012 the founders of The Hub HK had a vision to help such children by providing a place for disadvantaged children:

•    to study and do their homework
•    to receive help with their learning
•    to meet and interact with their peers
•    to laugh, sing and roll around on the floor – as all kids should!
