Hope at Birth, Peace in Death – Funeral Culture and Charity
Date: 20 November 2021 (Saturday)
Time: 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Venue: Hong Kong Central Library (Lecture Theatre)
 
Description: Every person goes through life, ageing, illness and death. As filial piety is an important value in traditional Chinese culture, Chinese people attach great importance to funerals and burials. Following its founding in 1870, Tung Wah Hospital offered free Chinese medical treatment to impoverished Chinese people. Free burial services were offered to deceased Chinese people with no family, and communal graves were built for them. In the 1970s, Tung Wah set up funeral parlours in response to Chinese people’s demand for funeral and burial services. This talk is hosted by Dr Carl Leung, the fifth-generation owner of Leung Chun Woon Kee Co. Ltd. and former Tung Wah director, in the company of Ms Stella See, Head of the TWGHs Records and Heritage Office. The former will discuss the development of Hong Kong’s funeral culture and the latter will share stories about funerals and burials of Tung Wah.
