On October 19, 2009, SGI-Hong Kong General Director John Ng Chor Yuk and several representatives presented a check for the amount of HKD 79,719.40 (US$14,199) to the UNICEF Hong Kong Committee in response to the damage caused by tropical Storm Ketsana that struck the Philippines in September 2009.

Tropical Storm Ketsana caused serious flooding that resulted in the loss of lives and caused serious damage in the Philippines. In response, SGI-Hong Kong started a fund-raising campaign among its members. The check was presented to Mr. Louis Loong, chairman of the UNICEF Hong Kong Committee.
