Mr Ho Hei-wah 何喜華先生

Year of Award



With more than 30 years of solid experience in social work, Mr Ho Hei-wah devotes himself to improving the livelihood and human rights of the underprivileged in Hong Kong. As early as 1981, he helped residents of shanty towns in Kwun Tong and Lam Tin to fight for a better living environment and settlement in public housing. Over the years he has helped people living in poor conditions, such as those in the “cage homes” and partitioned rooms and mobilised the peripheral groups in Hong Kong to defend their rights, such as “the brides on fishermen’s boats”, mothers without the right of abode, new immigrant families, elderly living alone, the homeless and the ex-mentally ill. Mr Ho also promotes human rights reform in Hong Kong, whereby he has been serving as chairman of Hong Kong Human Rights Commission since 1988 and director of the Society for Community Organization.
