HKBIO distributes masks and hand sanitiser to people in need 無償奉獻 齊心抗疫 香港生物科技協會全力支援弱勢社群共同抗疫


Due to the continuing outbreak of COVID-2019, the Hong Kong Biotechnology Organization, Philip KH Wong Foundation and Cellomics distributed anti-epidemic supplies to people in need on 3 July 2020 outside Cheung Sha Wan Station in Sham Shui Po District, Kowloon, to assist them in preventing virus infection.


Professor Albert Yu, Chairman of the Hong Kong Biotechnology Organization (third from the right), together with Mr Kennedy Wong, lawyer at the Philip KH Wong Foundation (fourth from the left), and Ms Maru Young, from Cellomics International Limited (first from the right), led members of the Secretariat to distribute masks and hand sanitizer, in support of local epidemic prevention work.



Hong Kong Legislative Councillor Mr Vincent Cheng also attended this activity, with citizens of the district contributing as well.



Professor Albert Yu, Chairman of the Hong Kong Biotechnology Organization, said that Hong Kong experienced many ups and downs in its development over the years, and it is up to the people of Hong Kong to help each other in overcoming challenges. This epidemic is a reminder that we must work together to develop biotechnology and use the power of science and technology to prevent, test and treat patients. As such the goal of the activity was to gather like-minded partners to contribute to society and help those in need.



Citizens were very enthusiastic about the activity. Before the start, many were already queueing at the scene, with the entire distribution process being very orderly.



Volunteers on site also reminded the public to take adequate prevention measures, such as washing hands frequently, measuring body temperature, and wearing masks when in public areas.
