Sian Chay Medical Institution will sign a memorandum of cooperation with Nantah University to support the establishment of Sian Chay Medical Institution’s bursary for 100,000 yuan each year (a total of 1 million yuan for a 10-year period). The purpose of setting up this bursary is to assist disadvantaged students of Nantah University. It is hoped that the donation can relieve the financial pressure of the students, so that they can concentrate on their efforts to be admitted to well-known universities for further studies and become the future pillars of society. The 1 million donation to be donated in the next 10 years can help 12-14 students. We expect that in 10 years, the Sian Chay Medical Institution Charity Foundation will reach up to $1 million.
It is hoped that when students enter social work after graduation, in addition to focusing on personal future development and taking care of their families, they can better understand the meaning of charity and actively participate in charity work. Promote the bright idea of ”take society and give back to society” through the charity platform, spread the values and beliefs of love, so that people in need around them can get help; shoulder the responsibility of serving the society and assist the development of the country.

Education is good knowledge and positive energy. Professional education is a must. Education conforms to the trend of social development and is a sacred place for cultivating talents. Education is the field of mutual exchange, learning, self-improvement, change, self-cultivation, and understanding of the world.”
A person’s success does not lie in how rich he is, how much he has, how great his rights, how high his reputation; but how much he has done for the society, how many people he helped, how many people have changed, how many people have been His help leads to happiness and health.
