In the early days of colonial Hong Kong, the government focused on enhancing the commercial value of the city, and no effort had been made to lay down policies targeting local people’s livelihood. Overseas religious groups and foreign missionaries were the first to care for Chinese people in Hong Kong. Subsequently, the government founded Tung Wah Hospital. After Tung Wah Hospital merged with Kwong Wah Hospital and Tung Wah Eastern Hospital as the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals, more diversified services were provided for the people. Taking the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals as an example, the speaker will discuss the evolvement of non-government organisations as well as their contribution to Hong Kong’s development.
