Li shows common touch in angelic gestureCentral Station | 23 Feb 2018
Li Ka-shing donated HK$10 million from his charity foundation to Food Angel while visiting the elderly in Sham Shui Po yesterday.
The food assistance program collects surplus food that would otherwise be disposed of and turns them into hot meals for those in need.
Together with Park n Shop volunteers, the tycoon visited the Food Angel's community center in Sham Shui Po.
Park n Shop - part of Li's business empire - is one of the donors, contributing food that was cooked into 3.5 million hot meals over the past six years, as well as donating money. During the visit, Li decided to make a fresh HK$10 million donation.
The 89-year-old also jokingly told the elderly he would soon be part of the "post-90s" generation - not born in the 90s, but reaching 90 years of age.
