Fidu-Share: Supporting Our Communities in China
Fidu-Share is our way of giving back to the communities we are part of. This year, we were proud to launch the Fidu-Share Ambassadors Scheme, an internal engagement programme, and receive two recognitions for our CSR work: the “More than a Market” prize by the German Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai, and the “5 years+ Caring Company Logo” awarded by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service. Here are some of our Fidu-Share highlights from 2017:
We’re always looking for fresh ways of helping others. This year, we got involved in Soap Recycling via a local Hong Kong NGO. They partner with the hospitality industry to collect unused soap and shampoo, reprocess it, and distribute it to low-income families and schools in Asia.
In HK, we processed enough soap for 200 street sleepers to take a shower!
In Shenzhen, we recycled enough soap to support 330 children for a year.
The Great Outdoors
We never miss a chance to combine community support with our love of the outdoors! We collaborated with HK Cleanup to collect rubbish at a local beach, and took part in several fundraising runs in Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Hong Kong.
We collected 32 bags of rubbish from Lei Yue Mun beach.

Heart to Heart
We found new and fun ways of dedicating time and attention to those in need – from art jamming with handicapped teens through the Hong Kong NGO TREATS, to playing games with elderlies. We look forward to more quality time with our communities in the Year of the Dog!
We spent half a day with the lovely children patients at the Yodak Cardio-thoracic Hospital in Shanghai.
In Beijing, we enjoyed a fun afternoon with elderlies at the Futiyuan Nursing Home.
