“Heart of Gold” Hong Kong Hospice Service Programme
Project Goals and Purpose
In 2007, the Foundation extended its Heart of Gold service to Hong Kong with financial support from the Hospital Authority. The service offered palliative care and related services for low-income terminal cancer patients and their families.
The Programme’s 10 hospice centres became a home away from home that provide terminal cancer patients with professional care and facilities, as well as mental and spiritual support for their families — all under one roof. The centres served upwards of 38,000 patients during the duration of the programme.
