In the area of health, the foundation assists various organisations such as National Kidney Foundation of Malaysia, National Cancer Society of Malaysia and Perak Palliative Care Society.

With Assunta Hospital in Petaling Jaya, the foundation supported the hospital’s mobile charity clinic in 2007 to reach out to the local community. Assunta Hospital sets aside a portion of their profit to help the needy and to reduce the burden of the less fortunate citizens in society. In doing so, chairperson Sister Assunta Leong said, “Assunta Hospital is continuing the legacy set forth in 1961 by the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary sisters who devoted their lives in providing social and healthcare support to the villages of Kampung Muniandy, Kampung Medan and Sungai Way”.

The foundation also extended financial aid to Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital in Penang to help cancer patients.
