MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN
Chairman, Board of Governors
Mr. John K.H. LI, MH, AE
Welcome to the website of the Alice Ho Miu Ling Nethersole Charity Foundation (“Foundation”), a caring organization serving Hong Kong over 130 years.
In 1887, the forerunner of the Foundation established the Alice Memorial Hospital based on the Love of Jesus Christ, and the philosophy of serving with “Compassionate Love”. It was the first hospital in Hong Kong that served the local poor Chinese with western medicine. It developed as Alice Ho Miu Ling Nethersole Hospital later on. The Foundation assisted in the planning and commissioning of the United Christian Hospital and the Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital. We also provided training to the professional medical practitioners through the Nursing School of Nethersole and community nurses training courses. In 1997, the hospital was relocated to Tai Po and continued its medical service mission.
In the past 130 years, we strive to expand our services to different areas, including elderly residential care, chaplaincy service, outreaching rehabilitation mission, holistic health education and cancer family support project, which based on the Love of Jesus and the philosophy of serving with “Compassionate Love”. Our services provided would benefit people by the grace of God.
This website not only exhibits the Foundation’s achievements in the past and in the future developments, but also passes on the spirit of Nethersole in taking care of the wholeness of man that his body, mind, social being and spirit will be promoted and demonstrated. We will endeavour to serve the community with our culture of “Compassionate Love” and “Holistic Care” and may God’s name be glorified.
