In December 1941, Japan invaded Hong Kong. Then Hong Kong governor Sir Mark Aitchison Young surrendered to the Japanese forces on Christmas Day, and the darkest period in Hong Kong’s modern history began. During this time, the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals stood by the people of Hong Kong, upholding its mission of providing emergency relief for those in need. While Tung Wah continued to provide services, Hong Kong people supported Tung Wah’s fundraising initiatives when it was in serious financial crisis. This talk will narrate how Tung Wah pulled through this tumultuous time.
