Despite natural disasters and threats occasionally happen, Canon Hong Kong has always been positive and strive to provide assistance to the society. Growing hand-in-hand makes "Kyosei" come true.
Canon Hong Kong (Canon HK) has been inviting Hong Kong Red Cross Blood Transfusion Service to host Blood Donation Day at our head office twice a year, so that our employees can donate blood during working hours. We also motivate our Canon group companies for this event, by inviting Canon Electronic Business Machines (H.K.) Company Limited and Canon Engineering Hong Kong Company Limited to join the blood donation activity.
To relieve harms done to Japan after the earthquake and tsunami on 11 March 2011, Canon HK has joined together with Canon Electronic Business Machines (H.K.) Company Limited and Canon Engineering Hong Kong Company Limited, to raise fund for the humanitarian relief work of Hong Kong Red Cross (HKRC), as a result, a total of HKD133,036 has been raised and donated to HKRC.
