Mr Li Ka-shing visited elderly at Food Angel Community Centre during Chinese New Year

Mr Li Ka-shing made a surprise appearance at Food Angel’s Community Centre in Sham Shui Po to celebrate the Chinese New Year with the senior citizens enjoying meals at the centre. Mr Dominic Lai, Group Managing Director of A.S. Watson Group, Ms Malina Ngai, Group Chief Operating Officer of A.S. Watson Group, and 20 PARKnSHOP volunteers also joined the visit.

Mr Li brought his best wishes of good luck and health to the elders. As he is celebrating his 90th birthday this year, Mr Li made a joke of himself, saying that he will become a member of the “Post-90s” very soon. He brought along with him some fruit and rice for the elderly, and also enjoyed a lunch with them at the community centre. During the visit, Mr Li pledged a donation of HK$10 million in the name of the Li Ka Shing Foundation to help Food Angel expand its community work.
