The Li Ka Shing Foundation supports education, medical services and research and community service initiatives - the following are some of the Foundation’s key projects. Mr Li Ka-shing described his philanthropic effort as akin to having another son in the family. He called for a paradigm shift in our Asian culture of giving, through apportioning more of our wealth and means towards social capital so that we could bring forth great hope and promises for the future.
