8 July 2020 Hong Kong Island Flag Day Special Arrangement
In view of the latest development of the novel coronavirus epidemic and the extension of prohibition on group gathering promulgated by government, Blind Union will have a special arrangement on our Hong Kong Island Flag Day scheduled on 8 July in order to safeguard our volunteers and the general public.
Flag Station Arrangement
To protect the well-being of our volunteers, we will distribute epidemic prevention supplies like hand sanitizers and wet wipes to our volunteer together with the flag bags. Besides, we will remind our volunteers to keep an appropriate social distance with the public and also keep the most minimum contact with the donors when selling flags. The number of flag station is reduced from 8 to 5 as follows:
HK02 - LG01-03, Lower Ground Floor, The Westwood, 8 Belcher's Street, HK – HSBC (MTR HKU Exit C2)
HK03 – BL1, 1 Queens Road Central, Central, HK - HSBC

Blind Union’s work has always been to improve the lives and rights of visually impaired persons, however, this would not have been possible without your support as our income depends on donations from the general public. Affected by the epidemic this year, most of the fundraising activities need to be cancelled and our fundraising work is facing a difficult situation. Your support is crucial to us especially in this challenging time. Please support us NOW!
