Since its establishment, Meg-Star Group has been dedicated to supporting charity and social affairs, and encouraging employees to actively participate in and care for the community.
In 2017, the Group started Meg-Star Charity which focuses on poverty alleviation, building a harmonious global village. Through practice, we organize field trips to fund the education of children in impoverished mountainous areas, especially those who are out of school, and support for orphans. Through supporting charity tourism, we call on the whole society to pay attention to the survival and development of children in impoverished areas, promote fraternity ideas and disseminate positive energy.
Meg-Star Group, Meg-Star International Charity Association and interior design master Mr. Siza Cham jointly develop the “Home +” and “Together We Built It” charity project, to help needy families in the Mainland to create better home environment. The groundbreaking ceremony of the first home renovation was held on November 11th.
In the year beginning, the project committee of “Home +” started research on current housing condition of needy families, and finally selected 12 families in Jianghai region to participate in the home renovation plan. The proposal successfully gained full support from the society, volunteers and responsible businesses. Multiple campaigns including the finance platform jointly presented by ICBC and Jianhai Charity Association have been launched to raise fund online, to purchase materials needed for home renovation.
In order to make the project successful, Meg-Star Charity organized various visits to the needy families to more understand their true needs, and donated RMB500,000 as monetary support. “We wish could always take a step further to help more people in the world, because together, we built it”, the Meg-Star Charity Association President said.
Meg-Star Charity volunteers collected a number of moon cake gift boxes from employees, and shared them with the elderly in a charity visit to Coloane Seac Pai Van. Volunteers brought along their kids to celebrate the upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival with these kind elderly. Together they played games, guessed riddle, and shared the joy and laughter through songs and hand exercise.
We hope by organizing this activity, we can bring warmth and pleasure to Macau society. Furthermore, we can make the festival become a more meaningful and caring one.
The Meg-Star International Charity Association continued to share hopes with the world. On July 3, 2019, volunteers completed a six-day child-caring visit in the Philippines, to help and interact with the needy and less fortunate children in Manila, Tacloban and Southern Leyte. More than 600 Filipino children and 250 families benefited from second-hand books, calculators, computers, display screens, toys and school supplies collected previously.
On June 27, all volunteers visited a local elementary school in Manila, to distribute storybooks and schoolbags, and read the students stories. Volunteers also participated in the feeding program with children and had dinner together. On the next day, volunteers departed for Tacloban and South Leyte Island, and visited the library and amusement facilities funded by charity partners. The team set up computer rooms and installed computers donated by the Meg-Star Charity, and gave a financial management lesson to students through interesting games. Volunteers returned to Manila on June 30 to visit the children’s community in Tongdo District and the Smoky Mountain where the people in poverty live. They prepared lunch for children and distributed stationery and daily necessities to the locals.
Beside children, the volunteers also interacted with the local homestay families, teachers and charity associations to understand the real need of local children, hoping to explore future development with them, in order to provide a more suitable environment for local children’s growth.
The Meg-Star Group helps international children grow in different ways, striving to build a better living environment with a healthy and positive philosophy of life for the next generation.

April 23, 2019
The launching ceremony of the “Building a Home Together” project and the “Home + Public Welfare Plan Jiangmen Station” was held in Jianghai district. Lei Ka Seng, Chairman of the Meg-Star International Charity Association, attended the event with 120 people.
During the on-site service by our social workers in Jianghai district in 2018, it was noticed that there were a number of distressed children, the elderly and the disabled living in the very old houses with serious construction problems. Due to the long construction time and natural disasters, these houses have experienced wall cracks and roof seepage, which have resulted in large safety hazards and poor living environment. Therefore, since the launch of the “Home + Public Welfare Program”, we immediately receive strong support from the Jianghai district government and community, and will carry out public welfare reconstruction and transformation of the old dangerous houses of 12 difficult families in Jiangmen.
The design team of the “Home + Public Welfare Program Jiangmen Station” is composed of designers and universities in Macau and Jiangmen. So far, the project has 6 government departments, 6 social organizations, 13 architects, 2 colleges, more than 900 enterprises and more than 900 volunteers participated in the project, and received funds from the civil organizations and the third-level charity fund of RMB 230,000.

Our volunteers brought along a piles of high-quality cotton-padded clothes and shoes from Macau, and gave them to over 160 students in Gansu.

To relieve the elderly’s muscle stress and prevent possible strain on the body, volunteers had specially learnt a set of hand gymnastics from therapists, and taught the elderly in the visit. All the elderly paid high attention to learning the exercise and appreciated its advantages.
When volunteers performed some classical songs of famous singers of the 70’s, the elderly followed and sang happily along, making the whole atmosphere totally joyful and warm.
Meg-Star Charity promised the elderly that they will visit again at the next Mid-Autumn Festival, to continually bring them warmth and happiness.
