Mayer Brown is pleased to announce that it has received the "Top Fundraiser Corporation" and "Highest Number of Participants" awards from the World Vision's Expedition 180 event in Hong Kong.

The firm has a long-held commitment to corporate social responsibility with many initiatives being undertaken globally. In Hong Kong, Mayer Brown has been a supporter of the World Vision event, which raises funds for South Sudanese children and families, for several years.

Lawyers and staff from the firm's Hong Kong office took part in this year's half-day event held on 23 February, where they immersed in refugee simulation and experienced the plight of South Sudanese children affected by conflict.

Funds raised in this event will go to support World Vision’s integrated health and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) projects in South Sudan, aimed at assisting children and families in need.
