FWD Donates Anti-epidemic Supplies to Charities

FWD agents and staff join hands to support the needy amid the coronavirus outbreak

CHINA - Media OutReach - 12 March 2020 - To help the needy combat the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the tied agency force and corporate staff of FWD Hong Kong ("FWD") have successfully collected a batch of anti-epidemic supplies and donated to four charities which serve vulnerable groups like cancer patients, the visually impaired, elderly and underprivileged communities.

"While having special insurance benefits and measures to fortify protection for our customers against the COVID-19, we thought we should take a step further and lend a helping hand to the vulnerable groups," said Jeff Wong, Chief Agency Officer of FWD Hong Kong & Macau.

"Since our inception, FWD has been working closely with charitable organisations. We believe in the importance of giving back and supporting the sustainability of different communities," Jeff continued. "We may have passed the toughest stage of epidemic prevention supplies shortage, yet it is still hard for the vulnerable groups to get what they need. Donating from our surplus may not be a lot but many a little makes a mickle!"

The donation event has received an overwhelming response from FWD's tied agency force and staff. Numerous items were received in just two weeks and quality checks were performed to make sure all items are intact for donation.

Eventually, over 5,900 items including surgical masks, hand sanitisers, disinfectant alcohol, disinfectant wipes, bleach, and cleaning supplies have been donated to four selected charities, namely Cancerinformation.com.hk Charity Foundation, Caritas Pelletier School, Hong Kong Blind Union, and Ladder Mission.

Through this donation event, FWD hopes to support charities, especially the smaller ones lacking support and resources, to help people who are exposed to relatively higher pandemic threat. For instance, cancer patients and the elderly who generally have weaker immunity, the visually impaired who rely much on the sense of touch, and underprivileged families living in undesirable conditions.

About the beneficiaries:
