Sheen Hok Charitable Foundation is a major long-term supporter of Operation Smile which has been providing free surgeries for underprivileged children in Greater China who suffer from cleft lips and cleft palates since 1991.
In marking the 25th anniversary of Operation Smile's medical missions in Greater China, Sheen Hok is launching a fundraising campaign "Around the World with a Smile" in Hong Kong from September 2016 to February 2017. The campaign aims to provide sufficient funding for extending Operation Smile's free medical services to more rural areas across China. It also cheers up Hong Kong and brings smiles to people around the world.
The campaign has engaged the support and contributions from five community and business sectors (衣食住行樂) to promote awareness, raise funds, and most importantly gather everyone in Hong Kong to participate in a meaningful cause together.
A stunning 3-D Balloon floating on top of a globe surrounded by selective world monuments, symbolizing Operation Smile’s vision of bringing SMILES to people around the world, will be displayed at the campaign’s opening ceremony at 1881 Heritage on 28 September 2016 until 31 October 2016. Campaign merchandises adopting the Balloon motif will be produced for charity sales at various sponsors’ outlets throughout the campaign period.
Operation Smile will continue its mission to bring smiles to all children across Greater China and around the world, just as Mrs. Kathy Magee, Operation Smile Co-founder and President has rightly said: “Every child that has a facial deformity is our responsibility. If we don’t take care of that child, there’s no guarantee that anyone else will.”
Stay tuned and join us in supporting such a great cause!
