Charity Movie Show 2018
On 23 September 2018, Mental Health Foundation (MHF) held the "Distinction-Charity Movie Show" successfully. It has raised more than two hundred thousand dollars. The raised fund will be used to support MHF programs and services, including Drug Subsidization Scheme, Youth Ambassador Program, school talks and Mindfulness and WRAP Workshop, etc. We pledge to promote the importance of mental wellness and orchestrate a collective effort to making Hong Kong a mentally healthy and stigma-free city. Only by putting discrimination aside and treating people in recovery from mental illness and people with special needs equally, they can integrate into society and exert their unique brilliance.
It is grateful for the support to our Charity Movie Show 2018 from all guests.
