Amidst the bitter cold, a wave of compassion emerges. On December 18th at 23:59, a 6.2 magnitude earthquake struck Jishishan County, Linxia Prefecture, Gansu Province, causing significant damage of property and loss of life in Gansu and Qinghai provinces. The disaster has touched the hearts of people across the nation, prompting various sectors of society to support the earthquake relief efforts.
Upon hearing of the earthquake, the Amber Hill Group promptly initiated donation efforts through the Smile Charity Foundation in collaboration with the U-hearts Foundation and ECO Foundation. On December 22nd, representatives from the Amber Hill Group visited the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to hand over the donated funds, specifically directed towards rescue operations and the restoration of people's lives in the earthquake-affected areas of Gansu and Qinghai. The funds will be swiftly and directly delivered to the disaster-stricken areas through the disaster relief account of the Liaison Office.
Gansu has been a province where the Amber Hill Group has made a large amount of educational donations over the years, supporting students by building schools and providing education facilities, igniting a beacon of hope for their future. This donation not only aims to help the affected population overcome their difficulties but also sends warm care to the children. Love blossoms within the “Smile”, nurturing growth in warmth. The Amber Hill Group will closely monitor the progress of the relief efforts, standing united in these challenging times with people there. With the support and collective efforts of society, we believe that a beautiful home will be rebuilt in the near future.
This donation, spanning thousands of miles, embodies the spirit of mutual assistance, reflecting the Amber Hill Group's commitment to "caring for public welfare and spreading warmth" and the demonstration of their corporate responsibility to "never forget the initial intention and give back to society." Dr. Neo Wu, Chairman of the Amber Hill Group, established the Smiling Charity Foundation in 2019, which has made significant contributions in various areas such as epidemic prevention, education assistance, disaster reduction, and helping the vulnerable. Walking hand in hand with public welfare, the Amber Hill Group integrates social responsibility into its corporate DNA and future development.
