Received this email re what looks very worthwhile charity walk to help with housing at Tai O on Lantau:
We are a worldwide, non-governmental charitable organization dedicated to eradicate poverty housing and homelessness. Since its foundation in 1976 in the US, Habitat has helped build more than 500,000 safe and affordable houses serving over 2.5 million people across six continents.
Our Tai O Restoration project is to restore stilt houses for the poor elderly in need. The project started in 2010 and now is approaching the last Phase and we very much hope that you can be with us in our “Habitat Challenge Day 2012” to witness the continuous achievements in this effort.
