Purviz Shroff

The wife of Rusy, Purviz is a permanent managing director of Ruttonjee Estates Continuation. Recipient of our 2014 Philanthropist Award, she is a faithful volunteer and patron of Mother's Choice, president of the Hong Kong Indian Women's Club, vice-chair of the Hong Kong Tuberculosis, Chest and Heart Diseases Association, and a staunch supporter of numerous charities in the city. The Shroffs are well known for their generosity and one of Purviz's causes closest to her heart is Mother's Choice. More than just a charity, the non-profit organisation also provides much-needed non-judgmental support for crisis pregnancies, sex education, and adoption and foster-care services. Purviz is a true inspiration and a guiding light–we can only hope that more follow in her footsteps.
