History

In recognition of Messrs. Franklin Ma and Marvin Ma, who were advised by Mr. Maximilian Ma, MBE, Mr. Michael Ma and Mr. Lawrence Ma to make a generous donation of $700,000 to support the development project of Tung Wah, the Tung Wah Board of Directors decided to name this Hostel after Messrs. Ma's late grandmother as "Tung Wah Group of Hospitals Ma Cheng Shuk Ying Hostel for the Elderly. The Home was later renamed to "Tung Wah Group of Hospitals Ma Cheng Shuk Ying Home for the Elderly" on 1 March 2000 with all the self-care places being converted to meal places.
