(Hong Kong, 22 February 2014) The “March of Social Engineers”, the latest programme under the Li Ka Shing Foundation’s “Love HK Your Way!”, entered a new phase today, as the city’s social engineers gathered together for a sharing session and collect funds to kick start their proposed projects immediately. The sharing session today aimed to provide an opportunity for around 100 social workers, whose projects were elected, and representatives of charitable organisations, to exchange views on their caring projects and discuss a range of pressing social issues in Hong Kong.
