Shenzhen's Mission Hills Golf Club is donating part of its revenue to the Red Cross for initiatives to help prevent the spread of Sars. The club has designated part of the takings from one of its five 18-hole courses towards the fund-raising effort. The campaign will run for three months. From Monday to Thursday, the club will charge $726 per head for a day of golf, of which $518 will be split between the Hong Kong and Shenzhen Red Cross. Fridays and weekends have been reserved for members. 'The goal is to have Hong Kong and China work together to fight the disease,' said David Chu Shu-ho, chairman of Mission Hills Group. Mr Chu said the club could raise as much as $10 million. Chan Kai-ming, secretary-general of Hong Kong Red Cross, said the funds would be used to promote public health education, buy protective suits for hospital support staff and clean the homes of the elderly and chronically ill. The Red Cross in Shenzhen will use the money to buy protective gear for medical staff, drugs and medical equipment, and to help pay for treatment costs for patients with financial difficulties. The Hong Kong Red Cross has already distributed hygiene kits to homes for the elderly and the ill. It has also bought 100,000 protective suits for hospital support staff in 16 public hospitals. Caregivers of the elderly also received 50,000 suits.
