Dr Daniel Wu - Taking Steps to Ease Bunion Pain
Of all foot ailments, the bunion is probably the best known and most troublesome.
It affects predominantly women with more than 90 per cent of cases occurring on the feet of females.
Although high heeled and pointy-toed shoes have been commonly blamed for bunions (hallux valgus), heredity and female hormones are actually much more important factors.
Fund-raising charity walk 2014
Dr. Wu has always interested in participating charity events himself. He thought it would be a natural opportunity for him to help seed the charity culture in HK by raising funds by patients with their renewed feet to help others in need. Year 2014 was our sixth annual charity walk. It was held in the picturesque Aberdeen Reservoir and Country Park with a special theme of ‘BUN-FUN Charity Hike for Children’. It was a walk participated not only by our ex-bunion patients but also the beneficiary children and their parents from the Heep Hong Society to give them the hope that their adversity will one day also be fully overcome and our belief that they will also carry on the charitable spirit of helping others.

A happy and gratifying ending of a healthy and meaningful event.
