Po Leung Kuk
Originally named the Society for the Protection of Women and Children, the Po Leung Kuk was established in the late 19th century to combat the abduction and trafficking of women and children in Hong Kong. Since then it has expanded into one of the largest charitable organisations in the city, offering social, educational, recreational and cultural services to the elderly, children and young people, and families.
The Po Leung Kuk Charity Fund for the Disadvantaged, in particular, provides financial assistance that goes towards the daily, educational and medical expenses of disadvantaged individuals and families.
