HISTORY OF YMCA INTERNATIONAL WORK IN HONG KONG
In 1899 Walter J. Southam was assigned to Hong Kong by the International Committee of the USA and Canada. By 1903, Chinese- and English-speaking branches each operated separate premises but were governed by a single board of directors. In 1908 they became two completely independent associations. The work in Hong Kong was closely associated with the work in China up to 1949. In 1961 the Council of YMCAs of Hong Kong, which joined both the Chinese and European YMCAs in Hong Kong, was officially inaugurated.
