In Oc­to­ber 1999, a group of vol­un­teers co­a­lesced their ef­forts to serve the com­mu­nity by help­ing chil­dren. United Hearts Youth Foun­da­tion was of­fi­cially reg­is­tered as an NGO in 2000 with an ob­jec­tive to pro­vide the chil­dren in Hong Kong and ru­ral China with more learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties and bet­ter school en­vi­ron­ment.

Since then, United Heart’s vis­it­ing team has been ex­plor­ing suit­able sites in the ru­ral ar­eas to build schools. They wit­nessed the es­tab­lish­ment of the schools in Hu­nan and Guizhou in May 2001 and at­tended the in­au­gu­ral school cer­e­monies. Un­til now, schools are built ev­ery year to pro­vide more op­por­tu­ni­ties for the chil­dren, es­pe­cially those liv­ing in dis­tant ar­eas, to re­ceive ed­u­ca­tion in nearby schools and shorten their com­mut­ing time.

This year, over 100 en­thu­si­as­tic golfers signed up for the Char­ity Golf Tour­na­ment again. David Young, Chair­man of United Hearts and Johnny Wong, Chair­man of Event Or­gan­is­ing Com­mit­tee gave welcoming speeches to kick-start the event. Dr Austin Wu was the Gross Sta­ble­ford in­di­vid­ual cham­pion, while Gary Ng won the Nett Sta­ble­ford in­di­vid­ual di­vi­sion ti­tle. The HK Im­paired Golfers As­so­ci­a­tion Team won the Gross Sta­ble­ford team di­vi­sion ti­tle, and the Philip Wong Team was the Nett Sta­ble­ford team cham­pion.
