    Hang Lung As One Launched over 100 Community Work in Hong Kong and Mainland China

    Backed by the contribution of the collective strength of over 1,000 Hang Lung volunteers, the Hang Lung As One volunteer team organized over 100 community activities under the theme, Shaping the Future, across Hong Kong and the Mainland last year, totaling over 12,000 service hours.

     

    In recognition of the contribution made by our volunteers, Hang Lung organized a recognition ceremony on February 21 (Wednesday). In addition to being officiated by the Company's Executive Director, Norman Chan, senior management members, Director – Corporate Communications & Investor Relations, C.F. Kwan, Director – Cost and Controls, Gabriel Cheung, Director – Project Management, Peter Leung, Director – Internal Audit, Ricky Tsang, and Director – Central Leasing, Mikael Jaeraas also attended to show their support. Invited as a special guest at the ceremony, local pop singer, Hana, shared her involvement in volunteer activities.

     

    An Executive Director with Expertise in Mathematics Served as a Tutor

    As the Executive Director overseeing the Company's Leasing & Management Department, Norman Chan has an exceptional understanding of numbers, especially those that relate to rents and sales. His expertise in mathematics proved valuable for a group of underprivileged children last year when he served as a tutor for the Hang Lung Fun Math Tutorial Classes. The free classes were designed to help students tackle math problems under the guidance of volunteer tutors like Chan. "In addition to serving as a math tutor, I also took part in other volunteer activities such as the Bike Tour in Nam Sang Wai, which opened students' eyes to the diversity and beauty of Hong Kong's natural environment," said Chan, "I enjoy sharing my experience with participants in the activities with a view to inspiring young minds as they plan for their future."

     

    Platform to Let the Enthusiast of Mathematics Shine

    The Hang Lung Fun Math Tutorial Classes were established in 2015 by the Hang Lung As One volunteer team together with past Hang Lung Mathematics Awards (HLMA) participants and students from the Department of Mathematics of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, to offer underprivileged students free one-on-one math tutorials. Jay Cheng, the Gold Award winner at the 2006 HLMA, is now a civil engineer by profession and has served as a volunteer tutor since 2015. As one of the top volunteers with the most service hours contributed in 2017, he said, "As a keen mathematics enthusiast, I want to equip primary students with analytical skills that will help them eliminate their fear of numbers. The Hang Lung Fun Math Tutorial Classes have enabled me to develop lasting friendships with students by offering them support as a mentor."

     

    Serving with Heart, Professionalism & Inheritance

    The Hang Lung As One volunteer team is dedicated to supporting youth development, environmental protection, and the well-being of the elderly.

     

    Last year, Hang Lung launched the Hang Lung Young Architects Program to groom over 300 secondary school students to become future architectural talents. Hang Lung's architects along with seasoned industry experts have been engaged as advisors for the program, to offer their professional insights and advice.

     

    During 2018, the Hang Lung As One volunteer team will continue to adopt Shaping The Future as its theme to provide in-depth and sustainable volunteer services for the benefit of the community.
