There are about 250,000 poor children in Hong Kong, and 50,000 of them are living in sub-divided cubicles in poor conditions. Therefore, since 2004, the Society for Community Organization has recruited community members as Santa Claus through the Santa Project to deliver Christmas gifts to needy grassroots children. The Christmas wishes of nearly 4,000 poor children this year were mostly for the necessities of life/learning, such as black shoes/white sneakers for school, school bags, books, quilts, sports equipment, etc.


The Santa Project 2023, with an average cost of HKD$250 per Christmas gift to underprivileged children, has brought joy and met basic needs. There remains a critical need for kind donations to fulfill the Christmas wishes of nearly 4,000 children this year.  The generosity of donors will play a pivotal role in ensuring that these children receive essential items for their daily lives and education, fostering a sense of hope and happiness during the holiday season. No matter the size, contributions can make a significant difference in brightening the festive season for those facing economic hardships.
