Denied the right to credit Christ for an act of charity, can one perform it anyway?

A few decades ago a Christian agency based in England wanted to send packages to Hong Kong (not then under the control of Communist China) to be distributed to the poor through governmental channels. Since the Hong Kong government was involved, the agency was told to remove the cross on the packages. They refused to do so, citing the cross as the reason for their charity. The packages were not distributed. Did they do the right thing?
