Po Leung Kuk, Hong Kong

Places

Po Leung Kuk was established by Chinese Hong Kong merchants to rescue kidnapped women and children. They still provide welfare services today. Thanks to Natalie Fong for recommending a visit.

The interior walls of the PLK building were filled with honour boards with photographic portraits printed on tiles of major donors to this quasi-government Chinese charity. Note lovely hair styles on the women. Also a beautiful identity badge.

Amanda Rasmussen and I were also excited to see donation plaques for Wing On and Sincere two of three companies who were key donors to Po Leung Kok in 1930-1931.
