Giving is not just about money – you can bring warmth, joy and hope into the lives of the less fortunate by becoming a volunteer. Your attention and care will brighten up our patients’ days and make their lives more meaningful while bringing meaning into yours. Together, we can provide the best for the patients of KWSH.
Being a charitable organization, Kwong Wai Shiu depends on kind-hearted souls who give their time and energy to aid our cause in many areas – from healthcare to arts/handicraft.
Volunteering can also be more than a one-time activity. Some of our patients suffer from long-term illnesses or are handicapped and thus would require constant medical and nursing attention, which can be costly to provide. If you are a healthcare professional and wish to dedicate some of your time and expertise to provide care for the needy, feel free to join us as a healthcare volunteer!
You can help even if your skillsets lie outside the domain of healthcare – professionals trained in the skills below who wish to volunteer their services are always welcome:
- Building, preservation, and maintenance
- Graphic Design
- Grief support
- Teaching English/Mandarin/Chinese dialects
- Legal advice
- This Volunteer card MUST be worn at all times during the course of service at KWSH premises.
- Volunteers are to identify themselves to the staff-in-charge before approaching the residents in the wards.
- The volunteer card is STRICTLY NOT for soliciting of funds and/or any fundraising purposes.
Increasingly, companies are recognizing the perks of corporate volunteering. While companies in the past have always shown their support to various causes by donating money, this new wave of philanthropy goes a step further: Employees are now encouraged to give their time while on company time.
Through corporate volunteering, the company gets recognized as a good corporate citizen which is great PR for the company and your employees feel good when they are involved in this process of giving back to the community.
Companies are welcome to help out at Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital by volunteering or organizing fund-raising activities. Improve your staff morale and promote the development of new skills such as leadership, project management and even team building skills among your colleagues and employees – all while doing your bit for society.
Join us and make an institutional commitment in activities that encourage and support volunteering in your employees!
