Impact HK Charity

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

The Korean International School is pleased to continue its support of ImpactHK - a registered charity that supports the homeless community in Hong Kong. The Charity Committee is excited to work with ImpactHK to support our local Sai Wan Ho homeless community, as well as, the Hong Kong area as a whole.

ImpactHK believes in the importance of kindness in addressing some of the most pressing issues in our community.
We started our journey with the simple aim of doing one act of kindness per month for the homeless in Hong Kong. Since our humble beginnings in 2015, many volunteers have joined us in our journey to support the less fortunate in a meaningful and measurable way. Together, we have evolved into a powerful humanitarian movement with the opportunity to make a positive impact on the plight of the homeless in Hong Kong.

From ImpactHK (website: www.impacthk.org)

The Charity Committee respectfully requests your help in supporting ImpactHK by the collection of plastic bags and the donation of pillowcases. These will be recycled and recreated into mats and pillows for the homeless community in Sai Wan Ho.

The collection period of plastic bags and pillowcases will be from Monday 14th January 2019 to Thursday 31st January 2019 and the creation phase will start in February after the Chinese New Year holidays. The project is expected to be completed by Monday 25th February 2019.

Thank you all for your support in advance.

Yours sincerely,

Willie Moeke
Leader of “Impact HK” Subcommittee
Pamela Kwok
Head of Charity Committee


Homeroom teachers: Kindly help to store all plastic bags and pillowcases for the time being. Willie will make arrangements to collect them at the end of the month.

Any questions, let us know.
