Christmas is a season of giving, joy and happiness shared with others. It is also a time to remember others less fortunate. Traditionally, Christmas is as much about giving as it is receiving. It's embedded in our culture as a time where we give to those less fortunate as a means of showing appreciation.

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic setting, the past three years have been a difficult period for everyone, including Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital (KWSH). Donations have fallen greatly as our fundraising activities were affected by limitations. Despite the challenges, the Hospital remains steadfast in providing quality care and services to our beneficiaries.

Majority of our beneficiaries are from lower-income families and are heavily dependent on the subsidies from KWSH. The increase in number of beneficiaries and the expansion of our services mean that the Hospital's overall operating cost is expected to hit $68 million this year. Our vulnerable elderly need your support! Your valuable contributions will alleviate the financial burden on our resources and go a long way in allowing us to continue serving the needy elderly as well as reaching out to more underprivileged people in the community.

Celebrate this festive season a little differently this year by giving to the less fortunate and needy. KWSH invites you to embrace the spirit of giving by donating to our charity drive!

All monetary donations are entitled to 2.5 times tax deduction.

About the Charity

Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital (KWSH) is a 112-year-old charitable healthcare organisation and is registered as an Institution of a Public Character, committed to looking after the sick and needy. KWSH currently operates two nursing homes, two rehabilitation centres, two TCM centres, four community care centres and offers home care services. KWSH's main site also serves as a community hub offering a comprehensive range of healthcare & eldercare services.

KWSH has continuously expanded our services to serve the needy elderly in the community since we first opened in 1910. KWSH's second nursing home at Potong Pasir has opened its doors in April 2022. KWSH now operates close to 1,200 nursing home beds in total, making us one of the biggest nursing home operators in Singapore. KWSH's services has also been extended to a network of six different locations in the Central Singapore region as it supports the region with a Regional Community Healthcare System.

The increase in number of beneficiaries and the expansion of our services mean that the Hospital's overall operating cost is expected to hit $68 million this year. Despite the increasing operating costs, KWSH continues to charge nominal fees and provide subsidies on hospital charges through its charity funds as majority of our beneficiaries are from lower-income families. KWSH depends heavily on the public's support and donations to sustain the daily operations of the Hospital.
