Plan International has a deep connection with Hong Kong as it operated a field office from 1959 to 1973, helping nearly 12,000 local children and their families. The Hong Kong office is re-opened in 2009, giving the Hong Kong community a chance to give back by supporting child development programmes and emergency relief work in Mainland China, Asia, Africa and the Americas.
