History

Tung Wah Group of Hospitals Mok Wong Fung Yee Home for the Elderly, formerly named as Tung Wah Group of Hospitals Mok Wong Fung Yee Hostel for the Elderly, was established on 22 June 1987. The capital cost was mainly supported by the Lotteries Fund. In recognition of a generous donation of $400,000 from Mr. Christopher MOK Wah-chiu to the Community Services Development Fund of Tung Wah, the Board of Directors decided to name this Home after Mr. Mok's mother as "Tung Wah Group of Hospitals Mok Wong Fung Yee Hostel for the Elderly". To meet the needs of the society, approval was given by the Social Welfare Department to convert all the self-care places to meal places and the Home was renamed "Tung Wah Group of Hospitals Mok Wong Fung Yee Home for the Elderly" on 1 March 2000.
