The Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Lantern or Moon Festival, takes place annually on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month.
The festival celebrates harmony and togetherness over beautiful lantern decorations, delightful traditional treats, and the full moon. It is a joyous occasion that is looked forward to, as it brings forth reunion of family and friends.

At Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital, the celebration entails transforming our iconic pavilion garden and premises into splendid displays of lights, creating a memorable experience for our residents.

You may play a part in this memorable event and warm a heart by making a donation! All donations are eligible for tax deduction of 2.5 times. Visit our website at www.kwsh.org.sg to find out more.

We thank you for your unwavering support in our mission of caring for the needy elderly. We wish you a Happy Mid-Autumn Festival in advance.

About the Charity

Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital (KWSH) is a 113-year-old charitable healthcare organisation and is registered as an Institution of a Public Character, committed to looking after the sick and needy.

At present, KWSH operates two nursing homes, two rehabilitation centres, two traditional Chinese medicine 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 and eldercare services. KWSH has continuously expanded our services to serve the needy elderly in the community since we were first founded in 1910. Our second nursing home at Potong Pasir opened its doors in April 2022. We now operate close to 1,200 nursing home beds in total, making us one of the biggest nursing home operators in Singapore. KWSH's services have 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 growing number of beneficiaries and expanding services are expected to bring the hospital's total operating expenses to $76 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.
