One of the ways to alleviate or lessen poverty is through education. By helping the poor and under-privileged to attain higher levels of education, we have equipped them with the knowledge and skill set that will allow them to get better paying jobs. With this, we also hope that it will break the cycle of multi-generational poverty.

“KF hopes that her scholarship recipients will live up to their calling to take up this very noble and challenging profession. May they never forget that Nursing is not just a job but a mission that will demand much self-sacrifices, all the patience and compassion that they can muster to alleviate the pain, suffering, fears and loneliness of their future patients.
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted touching stories of the dedication, self-sacrifices and compassion of frontliners, in particular nurses. It illustrates the crucial roles nurses have to play not just in times of crises but in everyday life. Their rewards will not be measured in dollars and cents but in the eternal gratitude of the patients that they have lovingly cared for.
May our recipients too live a meaningful life of dedicated service to their fellow men and women. May each of them be remembered one day as an Angel of Mercy following the footsteps of the great Florence Nightingale.”
Mrs Lynette Ng, Trustee of Kuok Foundation Berhad – Her aspiration for KF’s Nursing Graduates
