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.
