    Canon HK join hands with Yan Chai Hospital to support offline learning for students in epidemic

    Under the adverse effect of the pandemic, schools have been forced to close and have shifted to online classes. In facing the “New Normal” of learning habit, students have to adapt the online learning mode but their learning progress is affected in certain degree. Students also need printers to print out worksheets or notes for offline learning apart from acquiring hardware such as computer and video devices for online classes. All these changes have created a number of challenges for learning.

    Driven by our CSR spirit of “Imaging For Good”, Canon Hongkong Company Limited (Canon HK) have donated all-in-one inkjet and laser printers with consumables to the Yan Chai Hospital Social Services Department for the Small Group Homes & Foster Care Services and Youth Development Centre. Though the donation, we hope to help students to print out materials to help their studies in a more effective way.

    Mr. Shunichi Morinaga, President and CEO of Canon HK, said: "As a responsible corporate citizen, Canon HK has been working closely with different charities. We listen and understand their needs. By using our strength and resources, we try our best to cope with the community and help to fight the epidemic together as common goal.”

    Besides, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to our long-term logistics partner, Kerry Logistics for delivery arrangement of all printers in this donation campaign to support the community together.

    Living up to its motto of “Serving the community in the Spirit of Benevolence”, Yan Chai Hospital has been committed to actively provide the public with quality medical, educational, social welfare and emergency relief services in charitable ways. There are 54 social services units providing elderly, rehabilitation, youth & child care as well as professional training services.
