Education kits will be provided to children affected by last month's tsunami, thanks to the fund-raising effort of City University of Hong Kong (CityU) and United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef). Shortly after the December 26 disaster which left 234,000 people dead across the Indian Ocean region, CityU set up a support group with members from different departments and representatives from the Students' Union and the Staff Association. The group jointly organised with Unicef a campus-wide charity campaign. A sum of $354,530 was collected from January 6 to 14 - a record for a CityU fund-raiser. 'As an educational institution, CityU is concerned about children's development, especially their educational needs,' said Wong Yuk-shan, CityU's vice-president for administration. 'I have been impressed yet again by the spirit of solidarity and the compassion demonstrated by the university's community in lending a helping hand to children who are suffering.'
