Apleichau Kaifong Welfare Association
Artist: Noble Wong
Apleichau Kaifong Welfare Association was founded in 1950 to support community residents in the Ap Lei Chau neighbourhood. The artwork is a celebration of Ap Lei Chau’s unique history as well as the association’s community services. The top part of the artwork presents a scenic view of Ap Lei Chau as seen from Aberdeen Harbour, and shows residents repairing boats and drying salted fish in the sun, typical activities from the past. The lower part shows Apleichau Kaifong Primary School, which was established by the association in 1954. Despite the developments that have taken place in Ap Lei Chau over the past century, Apleichau Kaifong Welfare Association continues their work, supporting residents of all ages and helping to create a harmonious community.
