It has been the 3rd consecutive year that RI District 3450 supported CDMF Carol Singing Festival with a marathon caroling event. Within these three years, our District recruited over 3,000 performers and raised nearly HK$400,000 to support the disadvantaged youths in Hong Kong. The funds raised are used towards matching the personal savings of deprived youths, as a part of Child Development Fund, an internationally proven poverty alleviation programme.

We had over 1,000 participants from RAAS partnering schools and Rotary family members to sing on 15 December 2013. Besides carol singing, Non-stop Rotary Performance also included sessions of Chinese drama, poetry recital, and Kung Fu performance. This event provided a platform for students to show their talents and to support their disadvantaged peers.
