Oxfam Lai See School Donation 2022 (Hong Kong)

Laisee banner 2022 (Hong Kong)

Share the blessings to transform more lives
123

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 us remember the 20 million people on the other side of the world who have been displaced by climate change in the last decade. Last year, more than 50 million people worldwide were impacted by both climate-related disasters and the COVID epidemic, which worsened food insecurity and inequality.

Climate Refugees

Kiribati is the first nation on earth to see the first rays of the rising sun, but they do not know how many more they’ll be able to see from their homes. Because of climate change, sea levels have continued to rise, destroying houses and leaving farmland unsuitable for farming. Villages are also being submerged in sea water, causing people to lose their homes and livelihoods.
