Donates Masks to Less Fortunate
On 2nd March, we collaborated with HK01 to donate masks, rice, and crackers at elderly homes. We also liaised with numerous charities (Love and Care for the Sick Foundation, Cedar Fund, Fu Hong Society, and Hong Kong Women Worker’s Association). All items were put in ‘anti-epidemic gift packets’, which had ten masks and 1kg of rice each. These were then distributed to the elderly. Overall, 10,000 masks were distributed. Volunteer teams from HK01 and Ola Tech personally visited the elderly homes to distribute the packages, ensuring that the elderly won’t have to leave their houses.

They could choose whether they wanted to work from home based on their preference and consideration for their families. To ensure that we were nonetheless providing high-quality services to all our consumers, we keep close communication with those working from home.
