The living conditions in inadequate housing, such as subdivided units and rooftop structures, are generally narrow, cramped, and poorly ventilated. Residents face multiple risks, including fire and home safety issues. Extreme weather events led by climate change, such as very hot days, heavy rainstorms, and tropical cyclones, have had a severe impact on Hong Kong. Currently, over 220,000 people are living in these unsuitable living conditions, making them more vulnerable and exposed to higher risks during extreme weather.


By supporting the Community Resilience Service of the Hong Kong Red Cross, you can help to improve the living condition and resilience of residents in inadequate housing.


Our services include:

  • Provision of emergency kits, first aid supplies, smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, and other emergency items to enhance residents' preparedness.
  • Emergency disaster drills to familiarize residents with emergency procedures and skills.
  • Small-scale home improvement works to provide safer and more comfortable living environments for residents.
  • Needs assessments and home visits to understand specific needs and provide appropriate support.
  • Educational workshops and activities to enhance residents' disaster response capabilities.
  • Organization of social activities to enhance social cohesion and create a sense of support in the community.
  • Establishment of community self-help networks to promote support among neighbourhood.

By contributing just $500, you can assist a resident living in inadequate housing to improve their living conditions and receive essential disaster preparedness training and resources. Let's join hands to bring hope and change to these vulnerable groups.
