The CS Panel is thrilled to announce an enlightening seminar organized by the GX Foundation on “Humanitarian Aid and the Belt and Road Initiative” on April 16, 2024. The seminar featured a presentation by a HKU medical student who volunteered with the GX Foundation, followed by a live Zoom chat with front-line staff in Djibouti, Africa, discussing their on-the-ground work. The seminar was a truly enriching and horizon-expanding experience for everyone involved.

GX Foundation is a Chinese medical humanitarian aid charitable organization established in Hong Kong in 2018. It aims to provide international medical and public health humanitarian assistance in the Belt and Road countries, embodying the spirit of “people-to-people” connectivity. 

The Foundation has targeted to provide free vision-restoring surgeries for 37,500 patients in Laos, Cambodia, Djibouti, Senegal, and Mauritania from 2022 to 2027 and eliminate the backlog of cataract blindness cases.
