Hong Kong has always been considered a well-endowed blessed land. Under the threats like climate change and globalization, we are at a higher risk to be exposed to natural or man-made disasters. The Hong Kong Red Cross (HKRC) has been committed to offer a helping hand to people in need in times of crisis. We wish the public will walk with us to explore and support our humanitarian works.
The Hong Kong Red Cross (HKRC) signature event – Red Cross City Challenge 2023‧Act Out Humanity with LINE FRIENDS with the theme of “Search & Rescue” in climate-related disaster will be held this year. We invited global creative studio IPX (formerly known as LINE FRIENDS) ‘s original iconic IP - LINE FRIENDS to join us this year! In the event setting, we bring you to the future in which Hong Kong is impacted by natural disasters. Participants team up with LINE FRIENDS buddies to be a rescue team. They will plan their own routes and rove around the city to explore and experience happenings in the community during extreme weather and natural disasters by completing various “online and offline” missions.
