About ‘CU50‧Care’ programme
To celebrate its golden jubilee, CUHK launches the ‘CU50‧Care’ programme which encourages all members of the University, including students, staff, alumni and friends, to dedicate their time and power to community service within the jubilee year. The service mainly focuses on five key areas, namely, the elderly, children, ethnic minority groups, environmental protection and medical and health care.
CUHK believes in the joy of helping others and serving the community means more than mere materialistic or monetary donation. Upholding the University’s benevolent humanistic culture, CUHK members are going to assemble their power to contribute to the society.
