GX Foundation

GX Foundation is a Chinese medical humanitarian aid charitable organization established in Hong Kong in 2018. It aims to provide international medical and public health humanitarian assistance in the Belt and Road countries, embodying the spirit of “people-to-people” connectivity. 

The Foundation has already signed MOUs with 5 countries, aiming to provide free vision-restoring surgeries for 37,500 patients in Laos, Cambodia, Djibouti, Senegal, and Mauritania from 2022 to 2027 and eliminate backlog cataract blindness cases. 

In 2024, Timor-Leste became the GX Foundation’s inaugural country for the launch of a program targeting vector-borne diseases. It is also the Foundation’s sixth project country. 

Apart from providing cataract surgery, the global focus of GX also includes other public health humanitarian assistance programmes, such as vector-borne disease control, health emergency disaster risk management, international partnership, and community knowledge transfer. 

The Board of Directors is made up of 20 prominent figures from Mainland China and Hong Kong, and is chaired by Mr. LEUNG Chun-ying, Vice Chairman of the National Committee of the CPPCC.
