Rubina Hope for Kids
Rubina Wong was vacationing in Thailand when the tragic 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami hit.
To honour Rubina, her life and her values, a group of Rubina’s family and friends created Rubina Hope for Kids to help build a daycare in Thailand in one of the areas affected by the tsunami. This building of this daycare was accomplished in 2006 and Rubina Hope for Kids has since continued to hold annual fundraising events to raise money to aid needy children in our local community.
