Further support towards new healthcare complex

The University has received an estate donation of HK$30 million from the executrixes of the Estate of the late Ms Mok Sau-king towards the OUHK Jockey Club Institute of Healthcare project, in memory of the late Mr Mok Yu-yan, the father of the donor. At the cheque presentation ceremony held on 26 September, Chairman of the OUHK Council Mr Michael Wong Yick-kam thanked the executrixes Ms Barbara Mok Wai-kun and Ms Betty Yip Yuk-bing, and the family members of the late Ms Mok Sau-king for their generosity. He remarked that the heartening gift has been translated into invaluable support towards the University, enabling it to further enhance its campus facilities and students’ learning experiences. Ms Mok Sau-king was an educator with a deep devotion to the support of learning who made immense contributions to various local institutions during her lifetime.

In the past few months, two more enthusiastic contributions to the development project were received. Mr David Chan Ting-chuen and the Simon Suen Foundation donated HK$1 million and HK$500,000 respectively and a souvenir presentation ceremony was held on 23 July. Chairman Mr Michael Wong Yick-kam and President Prof. Yuk- Shan Wong expressed their sincere gratitude and thanked Mr Chan and the Simon Suen Foundation for their generous support.
