Please Help Raise Funds for Alumnus Mr. Victor Tsang Shing-ngai’s Family

Mar 21, 2019

Mr. Victor Tsang Shing-ngai, a 2004 graduate of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Business School, died in a tragic plane crash on 10 March 2019. We all share sorrow and grief at this news. 

Aged just 37, Mr. Tsang was working for the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). On the day of the accident, he was on a scheduled flight from the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa to Nairobi in Kenya to attend the UN Environment Assembly. Tragically, Mr. Tsang, who was killed alongside a number of his colleagues, leaves behind a wife and children.

Mr. Tsang had previously worked for World Vision and the United Nations World Food Programme, for the benefit of society. He then joined UNEP’s office in Kenya to actively promote environmental protection and women’s empowerment within the environmental sector. Although he had been living abroad for a long time, Mr. Tsang still supported his alma mater and became a guest lecturer on CUHK’s Global Studies Programme. In this capacity, he sought to pass on relevant skills and environmental awareness to students by sharing his thoughts on sustainability and building a better future for the next generation. Mr. Tsang’s enthusiasm for promoting sustainable development was truly admirable.

Mr. Tsang’s unexpected death has meant his beloved wife and young children have lost their main source of income. In light of these circumstances, the CUHK Business School BBA Alumni Association and CUHK Alumni Charity Foundation Limited have initiated a fundraising campaign upon the approval of Mr. Tsang’s bereaved family. It will help provide support for Mr. Tsang’s family during this difficult time and will finance the education of his children.
