CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
The Lee Kum Sheung Center for Health and Happiness (the “Center”) at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health was established in 2016 with a donation of US$21 million by the Group.
Named after Lee Kum Kee founder, Mr. Lee Kum Sheung, the primary mission of the Centre is to identify psychological, social, emotional and other positive factors that may protect against some diseases through rigorous scientific research, facilitating the exploration of the interplay between mental and physical well-being. By pursuing the discoveries to influence practice and policy, new possibilities emerge which can help to improve the quality of life and health of people around the world.
Since its establishment, the Center has been actively advocating and contributing to scientific research on positive health and psychological well-being, as well as health communications. With the establishment of Dissertation Research Awards, outstanding doctoral students with breakthrough results and valuable contributions to the field are recognized. The Center also hosts summer courses, seminars and internship programs that play a major role in stimulating thought, understanding and interest in the subject, with an ultimate aim to enlightening and empowering people to live happier and healthier lives.
The Group sets up the Volunteer Service Team (the “Team”) in 2016 to give back to society.
From community development and environmental protection to public health, the Team has been actively arranging and supporting various charitable activities such as home visits, beach clean-ups and various workshops. The Team, together with its employees, have been servicing the elderly, children from deprived families, persons with disabilities as well as abandoned animals.
Through activities, the Team hopes to bring warmth and love to the disadvantaged, and to put the “Si Li Ji Ren” core values into practice at our community.
