Charity is said to be the distinguishing characteristic of a Freemason’s heart. It is one of the three great pillars our mystic Order and the Scottish ritual reminds us that charity has the “approbation of Heaven and earth and, like its sister mercy, blesses him who gives as well as him who receives”.
Lodge Han Yang has always strived to help those in need, both inside the Lodge and within the community at large. Our almoner’s funds have provided much needed help to worthy and distressed Brethren, while other endeavors, such as fundraising events, have dispensed monetary assistance to local and international charities. In the last few years, Lodge Han Yang has worked with a variety of organizations, including:
- Give Out Love Handicapped Children’s Orphanage
- Save the Children Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund
- Children’s Organ Transplant Association
- Masonic Crippled Children’s Association in Manila
- Cararoo Foundation
- Hong Kong Far East Masonic Benevolence Fund
