Since its establishment in 1870, Tung Wah Group of Hospitals (TWGHs) has been serving Hong Kong with a selfless philanthropic spirit. And since the 1950s and 1960s, TWGHs has held fast to the mission of “To heal the sick and to relieve the distressed, to care for the elderly and to rehabilitate the disabled, to promote education and to nurture the youngsters, and to raise the infant and to guide the youth”, by providing the public with a wide spectrum of services. Time flies, TWGHs has been walking alongside Hong Kong people for one and a half centuries, and is celebrating its 150th Anniversary with the general public in 2020/2021.
TWGHs, the first non-governmental charity founded by the local Chinese communities in Hong Kong, has become the largest charitable organisation in the territory through hard work of more than a century. All along, TWGHs has been keeping abreast of the times, taking care of the people’s needs at different stages of life from cradle to grave through our medical, education and community services.
To meet this important milestone, TWGHs has taken “For Charity, We Go Beyond” as the slogan for the 150th Anniversary and planned a series of ingenious celebrations and charity events, so that members of the public can join us for the grand occasion. We will carry on the philanthropic spirit passed down through generations, and continue to stand with Hongkongers from generation to generation. Let’s get connected heart to heart for more far-reaching and wide-spread benevolence!
