The record-breaking rainfall saw several community-led shelters in Tai Po, Fanling and Yuen Long destroyed by the ‘once-in-500-years’ rain. Beds, food, refrigeration equipment, and essential medical supplies were simply washed away.
Many of these rescue centres are run by volunteers and rely on donations to survive. To help their recovery and reconstruction efforts, Media OutReach Newswire has donated HK$45,000 to nine separate dog shelters across the territory. You too can help. Find out more about these shelters below.
