The first Justice Conference Asia will be held on 16-18 May in Hong Kong.

The continuous reported cases of savage rape in India were a shock to the international society recently. The violence, discrimination and inequality faced by women in India are also common in other South Asia nations, such as Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Being restrained by the traditional caste system, religious culture, poverty and gender inequality, South Asia women usually find it very difficult to recognise and live out one’s self value and dignity.
How can churches and Christians respond to the distress of women in South Asia? In light of the ministries and services of our local Christian partners among poor women and communities in India, we will try to explore how Christianity is related to Caring for the disadvantaged communities and how HK Christians can walk with them together.

‘CEDAR in China’ Sharing Gathering was held in KUC Space, Kowloon Union Church in the afternoon of 20 October 2012. CEDAR’s supporters, staff and new friends enjoyed a good time of fellowship and dialogue on CEDAR’s development work in China.
Participants got the general picture of our development programmes in different provinces in China.
We tasted the delicious snacks made from the organic vegetables from our Hubei organic farm.
Several of our current and former frontline programme officers shared their observations, experiences, thoughts, aspirations distilled from serving the impoverished communities in China.
Besides tasting the organic products, participants can also take some vegetables home.
Lively discussion after the presentations
We look forward to future opportunities to share our development works among the impoverished people with you and listen to your valuable feedback.
