Caring Company Scheme 10th Anniversary, 76 Oxfam partners received Caring Company logo
In its endeavor to promote corporate social responsibility, Oxfam Hong Kong has, since 2002, successfully nominated more than 300 international and local corporations and organisations to receive the Caring Company logo. Today at the Caring Company NGO Partnership Day 2011/12 held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Oxfam was conferred the honour of 10 consecutive years nominator by The Hong Kong Council of Social Service in recognition of its continuous contribution in cultivating corporate citizenship and facilitating partnership within the social service sector and among community organisations.
“Oxfam is committed to work with people against poverty. Without the support of our partnering companies and organisations, we would not have been able to develop diverse and sustainable programmes to help poor people work toward improving their lives. We thank our partners for staying the course with us over the years,“ said Ms Kanie Siu, Hong Kong Unit Director, Oxfam Hong Kong.
