Mr. Li Ka-shing is known throughout the world as Chairman of the globally successful Cheung Kong Group. But his life story is marked by much more than his achievements in business. Trials, hardship, and a sense of loneliness accompanied him on his journey from a small coastal village in China to the flourishing enterprise he oversees today. These challenges formed the basis of his devotion to helping others, a commitment that eventually emerged as the Li Ka Shing Foundation.
Through the Foundation, Mr. Li has dedicated his time, energy, and resources to serving mankind. He has pioneered and supported multiple philanthropic programs and initiatives with an eye toward social progress and reform, innovation and creativity, and—above all—charity.
Every project and every donation stems from Mr. Li’s belief in the inherent value of each human life, regardless of race, class, or circumstance. He has devoted himself to helping others overcome the educational and physical barriers preventing them from achieving their potential.
Mr. Li’s experiences and life are a testament to his conviction that through hard work and determination, each of us can make a difference in the world—but only with a giving heart can we propel positive change that lasts.
