We love to see partnerships empower people in tough places. Multinational law firm, Hogan Lovells, has always demonstrated a strong humanitarian imperative. It was no surprise, therefore, when they asked us for ways they could donate to the recovery effort following Sichuan’s Ya’an earthquake in 2013. They gave generously and saw clothing reach people devastated by the damage.

Hong Kong is one of the best prepared cities in the world to face the typhoons it regularly meets. For Hong Kong’s poor, though, it can be something to watch with trepidation, knowing that, for example, village housing can be vulnerable to flooding, collapse and irreparable damage.

When severe Typhoon Usagi hit Hong Kong, Mrs Wang and her family watched as it flooded their small villagestyle home in Hong Kong’s New Territories. Almost every piece of furniture was damaged. Caring for four children and dependent on welfare, Mrs Wang didn’t know how to make the family home liveable again. The Social Welfare Department referred her to Crossroads.

Mrs Wang seemed overwhelmed with the choices of goods available to her, donated from all over Hong Kong. She left with a dining table, six chairs, a double bed, wardrobe, two bookcases for her children and home appliances.

She was one of many who came through Crossroads’ gates, following the typhoon. We appreciate all who donate to assist with disaster recovery, equipping us to assist those across the world or across the street.
