In the shadow cast by glowing neon lights, there are the poor, the sick, the helpless and the powerless. For them, each day is a day without hope; each day is a day of struggle for survival.
An emergency relief fund was initiated by the Chest in early 2004 to provide rapid response to people who find themselves in an emergency financial crisis for which other sources of help may not be available.
The Community Chest Rainbow Fund helps:
Individuals and families without the means of subsistence
Individuals and families on the verge of crisis
Individuals and families waiting for long-term assistance from other sources
Victims and survivors of accidents and natural disasters
• Each successful application will receive a grant ranging from HK$ 2,000- HK$ 10,000
• Successful applicants of “The Community Chest Rainbow Fund” and family members live with them are not eligible for re-apply for six months.
