Li Ka-shing hands medics, domestic helpers a LNY ‘carnival treat’

Tycoon Li Ka-shing will be sponsoring up to 26,000 medical staff and foreign domestic helpers in Hong Kong to enjoy free rides on the observation wheel and fun fair games at a Lunar New Year carnival held at the Hong Kong Observation Wheel and AIA Vitality Park.

The announcement on Li Ka Shing Foundation’s Facebook page said Li reached out to the organizers after knowing about the carnival, wanting to sponsor those who protected and served Hong Kong during the Covid epidemic - including medics, helpers and members of welfare groups - to attend the carnival and have fun.

The foundation said caring for each other is a precious gift in our society and that it wishes everyone a blessed Lunar New Year.
