The launch of the third Hong Kong Heng'ai Action in aid of orphaned and disabled children took place in the SAR on December 10.
As main members of the Heng'ai Action Organizing Committee in Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, Bauhinia Magazine and the Hong Kong Spring Bud Fund will mobilize thousands of local parents to knit sweaters and scarves to donate to orphaned and disabled children on the Chinese mainland and in Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.
The target this year is 5,000 items.
"More than 70 Hong Kong enterprises and organizations are taking part in this year's campaign, and the action is expected to attract even more philanthropists in the SAR," President of Hong Kong Spring Bud Fund Jennifer Chow said.

The Heng'ai Action, established in 2005 by the China Children and Teenagers' Fund and the Hengyuanxiang Group, appeals to the public through the medium of women's federations and foundations in various regions to knit sweaters for disabled children and orphans. More than 600,000 children have received home-knitted sweaters from loving parents in 30 or more provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions.
