Transforming the City, One Life at a Time 

Fish Story Documentary Screening - 24 February 

Hope of the City is hosting a screening of Fish Story, a powerful documentary about poverty in Hong Kong. The director, Wong Siu Pong, chose to explore the needs of the poor through the eyes of children living in low-income housing. The dialogue is in Cantonese with English subtitles, and there will be a Q&A with the director after the screening. We encourage you to invite family and friends to watch this moving film. 

24 Feb, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm, 10/F, 633 King's Road, Quarry Bay. Register for free tickets. 

 
January 2014 - Local Outreach Newsletter

The beginning of the new year has been filled with discussions about anti-poverty measures. CY Leung's policy address announced new government subsidies to support working poor families. To qualify for the allowance, one family member must be working at least 144 hours per month or, in the case of single-parent households, 36 hours per month. The Government will also be distributing additional resources to elderly centres and subsidising care for low-income elderly. 

As these measures are being put into place, Hope of the City recognises that our role should be aimed at providing educational opportunities to help the underprivileged access available resources and offering emotional support to those who are struggling with life's challenges. With the help of our volunteers and through partnerships with local nonprofits, churches and social welfare organisations, we hope to transform the city, one life at a time.
