Venerable Ho Yuen Hoe

Collection of Man Fut Tong

Venerable Ho was the "miracle light" of compassion that reached out to many homeless elderly seeking medical care and attention. In her lifetime, she has helped and cared for countless lives. She has only one principle in her life, and that is to bestow compassion to all beings good or evil - as seen in the four characters in the painting here.

Painting her posthumous portrait has been a rewarding experience for me, as I know it'll continue to inspire other people to be like her. And it is a symbol of spiritual strength for the staff of Man Fut Tong Nursing Home.
