As Hospis Malaysia is a charitable organisation, and our clinical services are provided at no charge, our main source of funds come from donations and contributions of the generous public and the corporate sector. Our operating expenses currently run at approximately RM 4 million, and this covers the cost of medicine and medical equipment, training and education, staff remuneration and general administration.
Besides public and corporate pledges and contributions, donations also come from families of patients whom we care for, and are fully voluntary.
