What we do

Ex-beneficaries' Activities

Plan operated a field office in Hong Kong from 1959 to 1973, helping nearly 1,200 local children in need, by providing support in education, food, healthcare, and housing. In 2009, Plan returned and set up a fundraising office in Hong Kong, Plan has reconnected with over 450 ex-beneficiaries and staff members through a search campaign called “Where Are They Now”.

Celebration of the 4th anniversary of “Friends of Plan”, August 3, 2013

A group of passionate ex-beneficiaries has established the “Friends of Plan” back in 2009, they help to fundraise for Plan, participate in events, conduct experience sharing sessions at school visits together with Plan staff, arrange volunteer works and organise re-union gatherings etc.

“Friends of Plan” 4th anniversary reunion was successfully held on August 3, 2013. The event was organised in a local cosy restaurant where participants were enthused to share their fond memories with their Foster Parents from the 60’s. Some even brought along their well-kept presents which were given by their Foster Parents.

Mr. James Murray, ex-CEO of Plan International Hong Kong, also joined in to celebrate with the ex-beneficiaries. He was very touched to hear the sharing of ex-beneficiaries’ own stories with their Foster Parents.” Some of them have already become Plan Hong Kong sponsors, demonstrating how they pass on their love and good fortune to those living in poverty in developing countries, as they were in the past. Plan will continue to organise ex-beneficiary gathering to further strength the unity of Friends of Plan – Pass it On!

Plan x Praise and Love Charity Concert, October 31, 2011

The “Plan x Praise and Love Charity Concert” initiated by Mr Stanley Kong, ex-beneficiary of Plan, and organised by Agape Amuse Association, was held on October 31, 2011 at the Cultural Activities Hall, drawing in over 250 supporters and friends. Throughout the show, the atmosphere was high-spirited, and the guests’ performance was highly appreciated. The ticket sales and funds raised exceeded our expectations, raising HK$80,000 for Plan in total.

Mrs Yvonne Tsin, the Vice President of Agape Amuse Association and member of the concert organising committee, thought the evening was so touching and encouraging that it gave her fresh impetus in her continuous voluntary and charity work. Mrs Tsin explained, “I love children, so Plan’s work really accords with my personal service mission. I want to take this opportunity to promote Plan’s services and raise funds for children who are suffering from poverty, so as to improve their lives and education.”

Ms Ada Chan, another member of the concert organising committee, said, “Although we faced obstacles when organising the concert, with our conviction in helping children in developing countries, the concert eventually came to fruition. The success really brought me great satisfaction. I’m also happy to take part of the charity work.”

Mr James Murray, ex-CEO of Plan International Hong Kong, said, “Plan’s ex-beneficiaries are enthusiastic in responding to our activities. They tried their best to support us, passing on our spirit of love, care and hope. The initiator of the charity concert, Mr Kong, even took part in raising funds for us. I must express my gratitude to him. I also have to thank Agape Amuse Association, as well as the zealous support and assistance of all the volunteers and guests on and off the stage.”
