Kadoorie Farms

Well if you know anything about what we are doing here, this adventure should ring a bell in your mind. Read this quote on charity.

In 1951, Lawrence and Horace Kadoorie identified about 300,000 refugees who were farmers, that were unable to provide for themselves. These brothers purchased a large hillside (The largest mountain in HK)to provide a location to assist these Hakka people in their pursuit for self reliance. They raised pigs and chickens, grew large gardens of vegetables which are terraced across these hills. They also setup micro loans that the banks wouldn't support to help the people get started in taking care of themselves.

This is now an absolutely beautiful hillside of flower gardens with flowing streams of water running throughout. We had a wonderful morning with the Linfords enjoying what has been created.
