HOW IT BEGAN
In 2010, the first Hong Kong Ladies’ Long Lunch made its debut on the Friday before the Rugby 7’s kick off, with 150 guests in attendance. A massive success every year, the total funds raised over the last 10 years has surpassed HK$10million!

HOW TO Get Involved
“Each of us is only one person.
But by joining all the ones together, we can accomplish greatness.”Christina Noble
The Christina Noble Children’s Foundation (CNCF) is a partnership of people dedicated to serving children in need and those at risk of sexual and commercial exploitation, by providing emergency and long-term shelter, medical care, nutritional rehabilitation, educational opportunities, vocational training, and job placement. We believe all children have the right to be happy and safe childhood so they may live in peace and surrounded by love.
CNCF seeks to maximise the potential of each child. This is accomplished within the context of the family and the community whenever possible and always with love and respect for the dignity of each child as an individual. Read more about our work here.
Our programmes address poverty at a grassroots level with a long-term focus on providing a nurturing environment for personal development. All children who benefit from our programmes are deeply burdened by poverty. In addition, many are orphaned and homeless and/or suffer from disabilities and disease. Because of these factors, almost all are extremely vulnerable and at high risk of exploitation.
Since our Founder Christina Noble OBE arrived in Vietnam in 1989 and with the formal establishment of CNCF as an NGO in 1991, the Foundation has over the past twenty-nine years established 150 projects providing vital shelter, health services and educational opportunities; these projects, combined with our community development programmes, mean CNCF has to date impacted the lives of over 1,000,000 people.
