Our goal is to improve the health and wellness of people in Hong Kong and contribute to the betterment of the community. Through diverse initiatives in employee volunteerism and philanthropic sponsorship with a core focus on supporting medicine-related charities and non-profit organisations, the Hospital reaches out to the community in which it is both a responsible citizen and compassionate donor. The Hospital has been awarded the prestigious Caring Company Logo since 2011 by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service for its unceasing effort and generosity in giving back to the community.
Villige VolunteerHKSH Villiage Volunteer

Established in April 2009, the HKSH Village Volunteers, which consists of HKSH staff members, doctors, nurses, nursing students, alumni of the School of Nursing and retired staff, has been taking part in various community and fundraising activities in order to promote the health and wellness of people in Hong Kong through care and love. Two main fundraising events are the annual Walkathon “Walk For A Vision” and “Christmas Party in Benefit of OSC”. In recent years, more volunteer programs and services have been developed such as “HKSH Caring Friends”, “HKSH Health Talks”, “HKSH Health Buddies” and "HKSH Trekkers". Collaboration organisations include Ebenezer New Hope School, Ripple Action, Enlighten and St. James’ Settlement.

With care and perseverance, HKSH Trekkers supports various charitable hiking objectives, such as Oxfam’s Trailwalk, Green Power Hike, and Run for Vision in order to help alleviate poverty, protect environment and support vulnerable groups in Hong Kong.

Philanthropic Sponsorship

In addition to supporting and leveraging the professional skills and experience of the employees through volunteerism to give back to the community, the Hospital recognises and rewards employees’ fundraising programs by increasing the value of their donations with a dollar to dollar matching fund.  The Hospital has also been actively engaging in a wide range of charitable giving through itself or the Dr. Ellen Li Charitable Foundation which is in memory of the late Dr. Ellen Li, the wife of the former Medical Superintendent Dr. Li Shu Pui.

One of the sponsored programmes of the Foundation is the Hong Kong Hereditary and High Risk Breast Cancer Programme, which is the first-of-its-kind that offers clinical service and collects genetic data of the Asian population, in particular the Chinese population, for ethnic-specific assessment and management of breast cancer. The Foundation has also been granting free cervical screening for new immigrants or ethnic minorities in the “Ripple Action” campaign since 2008.

The Hospital also supports programmes of China California Heart Watch, Hong Kong Blood Cancer Foundation, Hong Kong Cancer Fund, The Hong Kong Medical Association Charitable Foundation, Rainlily, etc. to make a difference extends beyond our hospital walls.
