A Richmond and Vancouver real estate developer donated a total of $250,000 to Richmond Hospital.
Michael Ching donated $200,000 towards Richmond Hospital’s new acute care tower and partnered with South China Morning Post to donate an additional $50,000 towards Richmond Hospital Foundation’s Surgical Restart campaign.
He also donated 25,000 masks to the Vancouver Diamonds Lions Club as part of their disposable masks fundraiser for the Richmond Hospital Foundation.
“Having lived in Richmond for a decade and Richmond being home to most of my projects and work, this contribution is a thank you for the care the hospital has provided for its community over all of these years,” said Ching.
He added that new equipment and facilities are important to provide the best care to Richmond residents.
Natalie Meixner, CEO of the Richmond Hospital Foundation, said they are thankful to Ching’s donation.
“Mr. Ching’s philanthropic leadership and his partnership with South China Morning Post, is an inspiration to the community and we are very grateful for his dedication in building a better and healthier future for Richmond.”
The Richmond Hospital Foundation raised over $100 million to help fund for medical equipment, improvements in patient care services and upgraded facilities in the past 30 years.
