In 2005, we established the JEC Caring team, to make a positive impact on the Hong Kong community – with a focus on volunteer services for the elderly and children.
The team has indeed made an impact, and for five consecutive years since 2006, JEC HK has been recognised as a "Caring Company" by the Hong Kong Council of Social Services.
Our volunteer services have included visits to the elderly on Lamma Island, and activities for kids such as outings in Central and Tsim Sha Tsui.
We also support the MINDSET charity – a Jardines in-house philanthropic initiative that focuses on mental health awareness, and helping those who have suffered mental illness reintegrate into society.
JEC supports the Jardine Ambassadors programme, in which Jardine Matheson executives work on charitable projects covering ‘Mental Health Awareness’ in Hong Kong.
We also support and provide donations to Community Chest fund-raising activities for local mental health related charities.
