Message from the patrons

Mrs. Anson Chan

It gives me great pleasure to support The Giving Light-Needy Patient Charity Supporting Fund which will help to meet the medical needs of financially under-privileged patients.

The Fund provides a financial safety net for those who need medical treatment but who are unable to meet the expenses involved in seeking the latest treatment of proven clinical effectiveness. In addition, the Fund promotes public health by encouraging self care through health education and activities. I believe that the Fund will meet a genuine need in our community and I encourage everyone to support it.

I congratulate all those involved in the establishment of the Fund and I wish it every success in the years ahead.

Dr. C.H. Leong

The Giving Light – Needy Patient Charity Supporting Fund was founded by volunteers of various professional qualifications, who are embraced with a noble sense of mission, willing to offer their spare time to serve the poor. The establishment of this medical foundation provides additional medical safety net and a new light of hope for those critically ill from the lower stratum of society. In full support of their act, I have signed up as a sponsor of this foundation.

There is Chinese proverb – “Doctors bear the hearts of parents”. Today, this description does not only apply to the medical people, but also to these dedicated volunteers. Let us hope that The Giving Light – Needy Patient Charity Supporting Fund will, in the near future, become a greater benefit to society through her more extensive service to the poor and critically ill patients.
