Mr Chan Cheuk Ming, known as Ming Gor (Brother Ming), has been serving the homeless and low income elders in Sham Shui Po district by regularly donating free meal boxes to them every week. He turned his restaurant “Pei Ho Counterparts” into a social enterprise last year and launched a Pei Ho Counterparts pop-up store in Lan Kwai Fong from November to December 2016 to raise funds for his Pei Ho (Ming Gor) Charity Foundation and aim to sell at least 40,000 meal vouchers. Although the pop-up store initiative was run on a trial basis and some difficulties in using Android Pay were encountered, Ming Gor said over 70,000 meal vouchers were sold through the pop-up store initiative. He was pleased to see more and more corporations and community partners showed support to his cause.
