Hong Kong is a diversification city, we have different Race, nationality and culture. Unfortunately, ethnic minorities still need to face difference kind of unfair or discrimination.
Junior Chamber International Hong Kong will organize “2017 JCI Hong Kong Run for Peace” Charity Run on 29 April 2017 to raise public awareness of ethnic minorities in the society. Through this event, we would increase the understanding towards cultural diversity through collaboration and hope to promote a mutual respect among the public to create a harmonious society. All income after deduction of the event’s expenditure will donate to our beneficiary organization Christian Action.
Christian Action was established in 1985 as a registered charitable organization in Hong Kong. Our mission is to serve those who are poor, disadvantaged, marginalized, displaced or abandoned regardless of their age, gender, nationality and religion.
Christian Action is passionate about empowering this vibrant and culturally rich part of our community. They want to see them enjoying access to the full spectrum of services that all Hong Kong residents enjoy, and they want to give them a dignity that comes from contributing to the society in which they live. Most of all they want are to restore hope in the heart and mind of every member of Hong Kong's ethnic minority community. Hope for gainful employment, hope that they master English and Cantonese, and hope that their children will not be relegated to the dregs of society because of their skin color or ethnicity.
Please join this meaningful and healthy charity run!
