Kwong Wai Shiu opens Acme-backed ward L7 in its latest Potong Pasir facility, closing this groundbreaking year of donations for the hospital at Acme's 2022 Charity Movement.
Jennie stands up close to a large signboard that states, "Ward L7, In appreciation of the generous contribution of Acme Associates". The latest Ward L7 brings new possibilities for dementia care and increasing demands for the ageing population in Singapore.
"We can't be more excited to find new ways to give. Acme Cares raises the bar again, with donations that support the communities we call home." Jennie, Managing Director at Acme, said.
Giving back to the communities we call home and to those advanced in years has always been at the centre of our innovation and drive. This year, we continue to charge forward with another monumental year of giving — raising the most funds ever for Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital in our 16+ years of Charity Work for health organisations, breaking last year’s net record-high by 15%.
This year, the Acme Cares' Giving program celebrates its 15th anniversary, having raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for health organisations worldwide. The funds raised through the Acme Cares program include the work of our worldwide marketing and creative design teams which have logged over 340+ hours of campaigning.
As of late, communities around the world are grappling with COVID recovery and supply. COVID-19 has created challenges in accessing care, supply, and health diagnosis, disrupting hospitals around the world. Acme's contributions have been directed to the COVID-19 Response in the past 3 years of the pandemic to alleviate these issues. The expense of medical supplies has also risen dramatically in the past quarter. With the help of this year's record-breaking donations, Kwong Wai Shiu can continue to operate publicly and provide affordable healthcare to an even larger community during these difficult times.

The fight against the ongoing health crisis continues to be more difficult than it has ever been. Communities are now not only fighting against the pandemic but many other emerging diseases that put the lives of people at risk. Acme's funds serve a central and critical role in precautionary moves that are more than necessary in the healthcare industry.
Thanks in full to our clients, partners and family who joined us from around the world for this year's groundbreaking run of Acme Cares. Your support has provided critical support to health systems threatened by COVID and emerging diseases. Your contributions have pushed firmly against increased operational expenses, provided affordable healthcare for 1000+ patients a month, plus 600-strong professionally trained medical employees.
Over the years, Acme customers around the Asia-pacific region have played a critical part in the fight to provide affordable healthcare for the elderly and less privileged, raising tens of thousands of dollars for the cause. It has become easier than ever to contribute. We are doubling down on our efforts to organise annual charity drives that seek to empower our clients and partners to take action in the cause.
"It's important for us to participate in activities like these. It's what will bring our people together and allow us to become an even stronger collective. We are proud to support organisations around the world as we continue to open in more locations in the Asia-Pacific region." — Serene Ang, Shared Services & Finance Senior Director said.
"I am deeply proud of the work that our teams have put in to make this possible. Acme will continue to do our best to give back to the communities that need it the most." — Lawrence Lim, Project & Solutions Senior Director said.
