Hong Kong NGO helps families in poverty improve living environment

By Fred Lai and Candice Tang 

 

Lan, a middle-aged new immigrant from Chongqing, China, lives in a subdivided flat with her husband and second-grade daughter. Having been sharing a broken bed for years, Lan and her family were given a new bunk bed in 2014 by Project Space, a local non-governmental organisation with a mission to improve the living condition of 120 poor families by December, 2016.

Project Space, an organisation which carries out home-improvement projects for households living under the poverty line, is one of the 26 beneficiaries of Operation Santa Claus. The annual charitable campaign is jointly organised by South China Morning Post and Radio Television Hong Kong.
