Constructing quarantine camps using Modular Integrated Construction (MiC) technology (26/7/2020)

With COVID -19 sweeping across the world, the Government has braced itself for the situation right from the beginning.

"Heritage Over a Century: Tung Wah Museum and Heritage Conservation" exhibition (19/7/2020)

Since its founding in the late 19th century, the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals (TWGHs) has been offering a range of medical, educational, community, traditional and cultural services such as temple and ritualistic services.
