Sun Life Hong Kong Join Forces With HKFWS To Improve Family Mental Wellness During COVID-19 Pandemic

Hong Kong, May 5, 2021 – Sun Life Hong Kong Limited (“the Company” or “Sun Life Hong Kong”) today announced that the Company will donate CAD$25,000 (or approximately HKD$150,000) to support a series of community activities organized by the Hong Kong Family Welfare Society (“HKFWS”). The HKFWS’ latest survey, announced on April 28, found that both adults and children have encountered challenges on mental health during the pandemic. Through supporting HKFWS’ series of community activities for the needy and underprivileged families, the Company hopes to bring positivity and improve mental wellness in families.

The HKFWS will be organizing community activities for grassroots families - such as family day camp, couple workshop and small group activities for parents and kids, tentatively scheduled for launch by phases starting May 2021. These activities provide opportunities for participants to learn to cope with negative thinking and stress, as well as techniques in communications to enhance family relationships.

Haymans Fung, Chief Marketing and Digital Officer of Sun Life Hong Kong, said, “Rooted in Hong Kong for 129 years, we are committed to helping clients achieve lifetime financial security and live healthier lives. Hong Kongers are facing unprecedented challenges as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. While life can be difficult at times, the importance of mental health should never be neglected. We are pleased to join hands with HKFWS in bringing the needed services and support to local families. ”
