establishment of cedar fund
Cedar Fund is a non-denominational Christian relief and development organization. It was established in Hong Kong in 1991. The establishment of the organization stems from the tragic situation of a founding member who heard that poor people in Haiti were suffering from severe food shortages, so they made their own mud cake (made by adding mud, water and salt, kneading them into cakes and then exposing them under the hot sun) to satisfy their hunger. He felt that Christians must fulfill the mission of loving the poor as commanded by the Lord, so he united with other Christian to established Cedar Fund.
