American Women's Foundation President Andrea Roth cited Helen Keller's quote that reminds us "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much,” to underscore how the collaboration between the AWA and AmCham has helped amplify the impact of our work on HK's community.
Since we teamed up with AWA in 2006, the AmCham Charitable Foundation has granted more than HK$2.1 million to around 50 smaller charities that focus on helping children, the elderly and underprivileged with health and special needs.
The Foundation's Board of Trustees reviewed the list of charities put forward by the AWA for 2019, approving a total of HK$407,200 in donations divided between the following charities:
• Children’s Heart Foundation
• Life Education Activity Programme (LEAP)
• Resolve Foundation
• St Barnabas’ Society and Home
• The Hong Kong Society for the Aged
• Watchdog Early Education Centre
