2016 CNY “Fai Chun” Charity Sales

Happy Chinese New Year!

Since 2003, the Institute for Integrated Rural Development (IRD), Hong Kong, has initiated various projects ranging from financial aid programmes for students, teacher training, healthcare, and economic development in remote rural areas in Western Hunan and Guizhou Provinces, China. IRD is a registered charitable organization (Inland Revenue File No. : 91/7188) and donations made to IRD are tax-exemptible. IRD was given full marks by i-Donate, a rating organisation for charities in Hong Kong.

In this blissful season of Lunar New Year, we are lucky to have a group of lovely kids in Hong Kong as our fundraising ambassadors to help spreading love to underprivileged families in rural China by selling charitable Fai Chun to their friends and relatives. All proceeds will help support less fortunate children from rural villages in Hunan and Guizhou to continue their schooling! Your kind donations will be a wonderful gift to children in need and to our lovely ambassadors
