At present, five organizations have been nominated to recognize the Fifth Batch of Kunlunguan battle site museums, Longyan City. Aw Boon Haw Museum is one of the selected nominations.
Aw Boon Haw Museum is situated in the Zhongchuan, Yongding, Fujian. In 1983, after the State implemented the policy of returning family property to the Aw family, the Aw Boon Haw Foundation sponsored secondary funding to renovate the Haw Par Mansion. In September 1994, it was formally opened into Aw Boon Haw Museum. In the same year, Miss Sally Aw Sian, representing the Aw family, donated the Yongding Aw Boon Haw Museum to the Yongding County People’s Government.

Yongding Overseas Chinese Hospital is located in the famous Overseas Chinese area, Xia Yang, Yongding, Fujian. As the Overseas Chinese hospital was gradually aging, with old facilities, the original premises were more and more unable to meet the needs of patients in need of medical treatment. To improve the medical conditions of local people, the Aw Boon Haw Foundation, in 2012, donated RMB10M towards the re-construction of the new building named Aw Boon Haw Building of Xia Yang Overseas Chinese Hospital. After a period of five years, its redevelopment was completed in mid-2017. With the operation of the Aw Boon Haw Building and the outpatient building with new facilities, the medical service capabilities have been improved and the patient beds have also been increased, which benefits 150,000 people in the Jinfeng Area.
The Foundation donated RMB500,000 towards the construction of the Memorial Hall for Early Hakka History (1500 square meters). The project began in September 2009 and was completed in December 2013. The Hall tells the story how people in Central China moved to South China, later called Hakka People.
