Launched in 2014 by the Hong Kong Ad­ven­tist Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion un­der the chair­man­ship of Jo Soo-tang, the Women of Hope Awards started as a cam­paign to raise aware­ness of the foun­da­tion’s Can­cer Fund and its ef­forts to sup­port un­der­priv­i­leged can­cer pa­tients in the city. Three years on, the event has grown to be­come an oc­ca­sion to hon­our women ded­i­cated to phi­lan­thropy and ed­u­cat­ing the next gen­er­a­tion on the im­por­tance of char­ity work and serv­ing the com­mu­nity. The awards cer­e­mony will take place dur­ing a lunch at the Aberdeen Ma­rina Club on May 18, and will in­clude tes­ti­mo­ni­als from can­cer sur­vivors. The eight women to be hon­oured in­clude Kris­tine Li, An­nie Ho Ting and Bon­nae Gok­son.
