The Community Chest Pandemic Rainbow Fund
Hong Kong has been ravaged by COVID-19 since early 2020; the pandemic has badly affected the economy and people’s livelihoods. In view of the situation, the Chest quickly set up The Community Chest Pandemic Rainbow Fund to support individuals and families affected by the pandemic.

The Pandemic Rainbow Fund reopened for the fourth round of applications in April 2022 to support those who faced economic difficulties due to pandemic-related unemployment, underemployment or pay cut. Applications will be vetted by the Chest’s 27 Rainbow Fund partner agencies, and the fourth round will close on 30 September 2022.
