“In the beginning, I wanted to help the elderly. Now we help the young people as an extra,” Roy said.
As the owner of Agape Restaurant in Ngau Tau Kok, Roy recounted that his original aim was to provide the elderly in nursing homes with catered meals and to channel 15% of their earnings to help the elderly.
Since the pro-democracy protests started last year, Roy saw many young people struggling in difficulties. He decided to lend a helping hand. “Nothing to eat? Alright! I’ll set up meal tickets; Abandoned by your family? I hear you! Come work with us.”
At the moment, Roy has employed over 40 staff in the resraurant and has a plan to open a second diner in a different districts.
Roy hired not only protesters, but also government supporters so that they can get to know more about different opinion.
