establishment of cedar fund
Established in 1991, CEDAR Fund is an independent Christian relief and development organisation in Hong Kong. It was founded because of a tragic story heard by a founding member – the poor Haitians were suffering from hunger, they had to make mud cakes (mixing mud, water and salt, kneading them into cakes and drying them under the hot sun) to prevent from starving. He believed that Christians must fulfil the mission of loving the poor as commanded by the Lord, so he united with other Christians to establish CEDAR Fund.
