Karen Leung Foundation (KLF) is delighted to announce that we have been awarded a generous grant worth HKD $328,000 from the St. James’s Place Charitable Foundation, to help continue our work in Hong Kong public schools and providing free HPV vaccination to eligible low income girls. This grant will cover the HPV vaccination cost for around 150 school girls as well as deliver an education programme to help increase vaccine uptake rates and raise awareness of HPV-related cancers.
To date, this ongoing “cervical cancer prevention education and prophylactic HPV vaccine programme” for public schools in Hong Kong has benefited over 2,500 girls within the public school system and with this grant, KLF will continue its effort in gynecological cancer prevention to cover more girls in need.
The St. James’s Place Charitable Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the St. James’s Place Wealth Management Group.
