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.
