Hong Kong is emerging from one of its most severe public health crises in living memory. Everyday life in the city was suspended as COVID-19 infections soared with overflowing hospital wards and scenes of panic buying at supermarkets and pharmacies.
It was a crisis that tested the Hong Kong community to its limits, but one which demonstrated its resilience, ingenuity, and resourcefulness as people banded together to bring the fifth wave of the pandemic under control.
While the government mobilised the community in an unprecedented city-wide effort to contain the outbreak, CLP drew on its expertise and technological excellence to help support Hong Kong's fight through the darkest days of the pandemic.
The company has also teamed up with various community partners and non-governmental organisations to distribute daily necessities, free meal coupons, anti-epidemic supplies and other food items to low-income families, the elderly, and other people in need.
