Launch of Cards Against Trafficking
On February 3rd we launched our second educational tool Cards Against Trafficking. There were more than 80 attendees joined the event. We were honoured to have Legislative Council member Dennis Kwok and “Ten Years” film producer Andrew Choi came to share their thoughts on the issue of human trafficking. Dennis spoke about the inadequacy of existing human trafficking law and the newly proposed Modern Slavery Bill 2017 which will be discussed in the Panel on Security of the Legislative Council in the second quarter of 2018. Film producer Andrew Choi also spoke about his latest production of “Ten Years” (Taiwan) which coincidentally human trafficking was one of the short stories.
After the launch, the cards are on exhibit at CACHe from February 4th until 9th, 10:30 am – 6:00 pm. Boxset of cards can also be purchased at the venue. Click here to read more information about the tool.
Run For STOP 2017 wrap-up
Run For STOP team flew all the way from Hong Kong to Cambodia for our 2nd annual Run for STOP fundraising event. Our runners did such an amazing job at the marathon! We are immensely grateful for the overwhelming support we have received from both the runners and all who contributed to the success of this event.
20 runners managed to raise over HK$400,000 altogether! The money will be equally distributed to support the running of STOP’s 4 programmes. We are so hopeful to see the positive impact this will bring to the communities and people we serve.
Once again, a HUGE THANK YOU to you all for backing STOP and for joining our journey in combating human trafficking in and through Hong Kong.
Run For STOP 2016 wrap-up
Our team was astounded by the generosity and support that was shown for our first year’s Run For STOP!
32 runners altogether managed to raise over HK$800,000! Once again, a massive, MASSIVE, thank you to all of our amazing runners who decided to run for STOP in Cambodia under the scorching tropical sun, and their incredible fundraising efforts over the past several months led to this incredible achievement!
We are very excited to be able to equally distribute the money to our four programs, and witness the positive impact it will have on the people we serve. Run for STOP is our biggest fundraising event – and needless to say it was a HUGE success!
