AZSCA Chairman Professor Jilnaught Wong writes:-
“On behalf of the Auckland Zhong Shan Clan Association, I thank you for your kind donation to Auckland Hospital.
I would like to acknowledge Mrs Ng Yuk Ying Wong, a founding member of our Association and its Committee. Her recent stay at Auckland Hospital gave her first-hand experience of the terrific care she received and this experience has inspired her to ask members of our Association to support Auckland Hospital’s cause in caring for our people.
We are grateful to many members and friends who donated to this wonderful cause.
I would like to thank you and our other members who have generously donated the total sum of $6,000 comprising:
Donations collected by Mrs Wong $3,620
Donations collected at our recent Yum Cha function $1,276
Donation by our Association $1,104
Total donations $6,000
This sum provides a meaningful contribution towards the hospital’s acquisition of medical equipment.
I have written to the Chairman of the Auckland District Health Board (ADHB) about the donation and his Board is very grateful for this generosity. On 20th April, I shall accompany Mrs Wong to the ADHB’s Board Meeting when Mrs Wong will present the cheque on behalf of our Association, to the Chairman and the CEO of ADHB.
Thank you again for your generosity.
