The air cargo community donated more than HK$1 million to the End Child Sexual Abuse Foundation at a cheque presentation ceremony today. The funds, which were raised by the Air Cargo Community Charity Golf Day 2006, will be used to support the Foundation's educational campaign on the prevention of child sexual abuse for secondary school students.
The Air Cargo Community Charity Golf Day is an annual fundraiser organised by major players in the airfreight industry including Chun Yu Logistics Holdings Limited, Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) and Hongkong Association of Freight Forwarding and Logistics Limited (HAFFA). Hactl is also a major sponsor of this meaningful event, which drew over 240 enthusiastic golfers from the airfreight and logistics industry to participate in the latest event held in last December at the Mission Hills Golf Club, Shenzhen.
Officiating at the cheque ceremony today was Ms. Eva Cheng, Permanent Secretary for Economic Development, who represented the air cargo industry in presenting a cheque amounting to HK$1,043,000 to Ms. Siao Fong Fong, Chairperson of the End Child Sexual Abuse Foundation. Representatives from major sponsors of the golf day including Chun Yu Logistics Holdings Limited, Hactl and HAFFA also attended the cheque presentation ceremony held at the Royal Plaza Hotel today. The donation will be used to organise the Sexual-Abuse-Preventive Programs for Form 4 and Form 5 students this year, which aims at educating students on the knowledge of sex and gender, sensible attitude towards dating and sex, and the concept of sexual abuse. Since the program was launched in 2001, over 150,000 primary schools students and lower-form secondary schools students have participated in this educational program.
Ms Siao Fong Fong, Chairperson of End Child Sexual Abuse Foundation said, "I would like to thank everyone in the Air Cargo Community for their most generous support. I am truly grateful for what they have done to help our Foundation".
Mr. Anthony Wong, Managing Director of Hactl said, “Hactl is pleased to have contributed to the donation to the End Child Sexual Abuse Foundation. We are keen to see more children and teenagers benefit from the education program supported by the donation. As the leading player in the air cargo industry, Hactl will continue to play a major role in organising charitable activities in the industry, supporting the needs of the less privileged members of the society in which we operate.”
