Tung Wah's Cultural Heritage Preservation

Tung Wah's Cultural Heritage Preservation

As the most longest-standing and well-established charitable organisation across the territory, TWGHs has been providing Hong Kong citizens with diversified services in response to their needs as well as preserving a considerable amount of archives and relics. While its unique history reflects the societal development of Hong Kong, TWGHs also plays a special role in linking Chinese community around the world.

TWGHs has all along been attaching great importance to preserving, researching and compiling its history for decades. In 1970, the centenary year of the TWGHs, the main building of Kwong Wah Hospital was converted into Tung Wah Museum for preserving the invaluable archives and relics of the Group. In 2010, the Records and Heritage Office has been established, aiming at safeguarding, developing, and sharing the heritage of TWGHs through the promotion of cultural heritage and the provision of cultural services. In 2016, the TWGHs Maisy Ho Archives and Relics Centre, a well-equipped resource centre has been established to safeguard and preserve the relics and historical documents, and strives to develop it into a significant resource centre in studying the history of Hong Kong, modern China, world Chinese and the world. In addition to preserving and promoting the heritage of Tung Wah, the Office takes up a pioneering role in local heritage preservation.
