In support of the annual Tree Plantation Day, the management and staff of KWIH and the J. Metropolis project joined the teachers, students and parents of J. Metropolis School in a charitable tree planting activity on 10 March 2016. Osmanthus treelings were being planted and greetings cards with well-wishing and inspirational messages for the students were hung on the small trees. The initiative was also symbolic of J. Metropolis School’s effort to inspire and educate people to become virtuous as well as skilled members of the society.

Metropolis School alongside the residential complex, in order to provide students with a quality schooling environment in a well-equipped campus.

Are you aware that more than 3,000 tonnes of food waste is dumped into landfills in Hong Kong every day?

KWCM volunteers are proud that they have helped alleviate the burden of landfill spaces by reducing food waste, and showed their care to the needy through this meaningful activity.
