That's why Acme has consistently focused our giving program on elderly hospitals like Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital in Singapore. These organisations provide essential services and support to seniors in need, such as meals, therapy, befriending, and caregiving.
Acme also supports the elderly health organisations that provide essential services and support to the seniors in need, such as medical care, nursing, rehabilitation, counselling, and palliative care. Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital plays a vital role in meeting the increasing demand for healthcare and social services for the ageing population. By 2030, one in four Singaporeans will be aged 65 and above. Elderly hospitals are crucial for addressing the ageing population issue, which is a global and national concern.
We believe that everyone deserves to live with dignity and joy, regardless of their age or condition. By partnering with elderly health organisations, Acme hopes to make a positive difference in the lives of millions of seniors around the world.
