Since the initial stage of the outbreak, “KWIH Anti-Epidemic Fund” has been supporting the anti-epidemic work in both Mainland China and Hong Kong. Efforts included donations to support the prevention and control of the epidemic outbreak in Hong Kong, and provinces and cities in Mainland China like Guangdong Province and Shanghai; providing rent concessions to its tenants in Hong Kong and Mainland China. Besides strengthening the preventive measures at the Group’s Hong Kong and Mainland China offices, KWIH staff also unites to donate epidemic prevention and protection supplies to support the underprivileged.
