HKMMF and the Apple Daily Charitable Foundation staged a large-scale “Hope for Life” Donor Recruitment Campaign on 4th and 5th January at the New Town Plaza in Shatin. Although patients suffering serious blood diseases were at risk of losing their lives, they never gave up because they believed that “living is hope”.
To educate the public about bone marrow donation, the “Origami” Workshop was organized for children and their parents to participate together. They and patients with blood diseases worked together to build up a 8-feet tall peacock, signifying the encouragement and support to blood disease patients. In addition, a charity sale of Chinese New Year Decorations donated by “Ah Chung”, a famous local artist, was held at the same time to raise fund to support blood testing of bone marrow donors.
