“Without community, there is no liberation” – Audre Lorde

As part of our Impact pillar and commitment to community, Eaton HK has launched an initiative to provide support to hundreds of families hardest hit by the pandemic through local enterprise Sister Bento in Hong Kong.

Sister Bento works with vulnerable Single Mothers of low income groups and underprivileged children who predominantly live in “Coffin Homes” in the Jordan and Sham Shui Po area. Challenging already, their lives amongst many others have been seriously impacted by the ongoing pandemic and are in great need of adequate nutrition and care.

Women who have escaped threatening domestic environments often feel trapped - unable to leave children at home means they can’t work, pay for basic needs much less rent. Sister Bento seeks to provide work with flexible hours, and connects them with centers providing day care support for their children as well as supporting primary needs.

The Eaton HK and Sister Bento teams will visit local community centres to distribute care packages containing essentials to low-income single mothers and underprivileged children.

Each package includes rice, cooking oil, toilet paper, bread, milk and eggs. So far, 600 bags have been shared with people in need, and we are now turning to our community and supporters to drive this initiative further.  

How you can help

We have volunteers ready to deliver care packages but now we need to raise funds for the items within them. 100% of funds raised will be spent on relief items.  

We welcome donations for this campaign, so that we can purchase more items and mobilize volunteers for future food distribution :

For HK$150 (US$20) you will provide the resources for care packages for 5 families

For HK$300 (US$39) you will provide the resources for care packages for 10 families

For HK$500 (US$64) you will provide the resources for care packages for 20 families

Our target is to raise at least HK$10,000 (US$1,280) for this worthy cause, enough to contribute over another month's worth of supplies. Just click on the ‘Back this’ button above or below to make your contribution. We appreciate any and all donations – big or small!
