Sponsor a child with Children of the Mekong USA

Children of the Mekong Hong Kong

Children of the Mekong, also known as Enfants du Mekong, has a chapter in Hong Kong to raise funds and awareness.

Donate in HKD

Our Hong Kong chapter is managed by volunteers passionate about making a difference in the lives of underprivileged children. The chapter is very active, and organises several events every year to promote child sponsorships and raise funds for our education centres in the Philippines.

Funded in 2001, our Hong Kong chapter is registered with the Inland Revenue Department under #91/7344. It is a tax-exempt charity.

One of our core values is to minimize admin costs, so we can increase the impact of your donations. This is shown in our excellent charitable expenditure rate, which is 85.3%. 

For your donations, we have partnered with Give.Asia, so you can donate punctually or sponsor a child with a monthly donation in Hong Kong Dollars. If you wish to receive a tax receipt for your donation, you must donate via bank transfer to our charity bank account. Please get in touch for more information at info@childrenofthemekong.org.hk

Come to hear our latest news with videos and testimonials, and share your child sponsorship experience over a convivial picnic!

Rilyn Lumapay, student at the Dumaguete education centre

I am one of those lucky students, I want to fulfil my dreams and Children of the Mekong gave me the opportunity. I never mind about the way I live today, but I mind about my future, I have learnt that problems and challenges will just pass by, I’ll never let myself give up. The centre is helping me to become a stronger and more independent woman.

Meet the team!

The APAC team at Campbell Lutyens Wearing pineapple shirts for the fundraiser

A successful fundraiser!

In November 2022, two employees of Campbell Lutyens APAC office, respectively based in Hong Kong and Singapore office, raised funds for Children of the Mekong.

Their target? Fund the Grade 9 and Grade 10 cohorts of students at the Samrong Education Centre in Cambodia for one year. Their support will give chance to 24 students to continue their schooling in rural Cambodia.

After hosting a regional online meeting with everyone wearing pineapple shirts, the team organised two sports events in Hong Kong and Singapore. All the funds raised are match-funded by the firm.

Well done for this wonderful initiative, which allowed to raise £15k!

The Hong Kong Chapter of Children of the Mekong organises an Art Exhibition every two years to raise funds for our education programmes.

The last exhibition “RE-SHAPE” took place in April 2023 at Soho House, Hong Kong.
