Hong Kong helps us move

They hauled boxes, cleaned rooms, gathered trash, drove trucks, lifted appliances in teams, drilled, hammered, painted and so much more! Hong Kong schools, NGOs, police volunteers, families and businesses all joined hands to help Crossroads move by our deadline of March 15th – an incredible feat.  As we handed back the ‘keys’ to the now-vacated half of our site, we raised a huge cheer to the hands and muscles that helped us move staff and operations out of one side and into the other.

We shared an appeal for helping hands on Facebook and through our network, and we were touched and overwhelmed by the response of so many kind people throughout the Hong Kong community. Over the course of weeks and months, we managed to move staff accommodation and several of our warehousing sections, such as the incoming goods department, from one part of the site to the other.

Pictures below show the mighty team of helpers, for whom we are hugely thankful. We are also beyond grateful to the financial donors,  and donors of in-kind goods and services, who are giving generously towards the cost of this move. We’re growing closer to our fundraising goal – click here if you can help bring us to the final total!
