Our Story

The Wen family has a history of generosity and philanthropy beginning in the 1960s with Puan Sri Wen. Today, WEN Giving under the guidance of Mr Chiu Chi and Mrs Mei Wen is involved in many successful health, education and humanitarian projects in over 10 countries with a focus on Asia. WEN Giving’s mission is to improve and promote the wellbeing and quality of life of those who are less fortunate and disadvantaged.

The support we provide creates, facilitates and implements projects which deliver both immediate and long-term improvements to communities in need. Every project we support meets a strict set of criteria and is run by ethical, transparent and accountable teams.

WEN Giving uses the resources of Hawaiian in Australia and Selangor Properties Berhad in Malaysia to help support its local work.

The strength and energy to get things done with honesty and integrity.
The knowledge and track record to make a real difference.
A compassionate approach which respects the local community and seeks harmony and engagement.

WEN Giving takes a very active, hands-on role in the initial establishment of its projects. We set clear, measurable goals which can then be replicated and funded by other organisations. Each project aims to become self-supporting after an agreed period of time. This approach helps us achieve sustainable solutions which have a positive and lasting impact on communities. In several countries, we encourage connections between corporate entities and the health industry which often lead to new initiatives making a difference to disadvantaged and impoverished people.
