Order of Malta Hong Kong’s Charity Private Screening
Thanks to the generous support of Edko Films Limited, the Hong Kong Association of the Order of Malta held its first charity private screening last 12 January with the film A Guilty Conscience. The total of HKD71,500 raised from ticket sales will be donated to our charity projects in Hong Kong.
The event began with speeches and a short video on the works of the Global Fund for Forgotten People which is the fund-raising and grant making arm of the Order of Malta. Since its inception 11 years ago, the Global Fund has made over 500 grants in support of those most in need across the world.
Mrs. Desiree Jebsen, President of Order of Malta Hong Kong, first gave a warm welcome to the audience and an invitation to peruse the Hong Kong Association of the Order of Malta Annual Report in order to learn more on how we support our local community.
In his speech, Jack Ng, the director of A Guilty Conscience said “the key message we would like to emphasize is that we as human beings should all live a life with a good conscience. It might be a difficult path to live a life with a good conscience but at the end of the day God will look after you!”
Mrs. Jebsen said, “we are delighted with the success of this public fundraising event. We are grateful to our donors and to all of those who bought tickets – your generosity will allow us to do more for the underprivileged in Hong Kong.”
A special thanks to Mr. Jack Ng and Ms. Louise Wong whose presence lent star quality to the evening.
