Oxfam Lai See School Donation 2024 (Hong Kong)

Laisee banner 2024(Hong Kong)

New Year's red envelopes, carrying multiple blessings! Let impoverished children gain access to education and seize opportunities for a better future!

Giving red packets (Lai See) during the Lunar New Year is a Chinese tradition, and represents the blessings elders bestow on younger generations. While we celebrate this time of joy in Hong Kong, let be reminded kids on the other side of the world who have been displaced by climate change and not able to be educated in the last decade due to poverty. 


Kids in Cambodia

In Cambodia, the climate crisis and overfishing have led to a decline in fish stocks, endangering people's livelihoods. Parents are often compelled to ask their high school children to drop out and work to generate income. Even if children can continue their education without dropping out, it is difficult to hire teachers in impoverished areas, depriving them of educational opportunities. The lack of access to education due to poverty raises concerns about their future.
