Social responsibility news from our East Asia Centre

On 3 March, over 30 alumni and students from our East Asia Centre formed themselves into eight teams, including their families and friends, to participate in the ‘On Track to Save – MSF Orienteering Competition 2019’. The event is organized by Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) in Hong Kong and aims to allow MSF’s supporters to experience the challenges faced by MSF field workers, who travel through some of the world’s most testing environments to provide much-needed medical care to the people and communities.

It was a tough challenge but the runners and helpers all showed great team spirit despite the unstable weather and the demanding tests. Most importantly, great appreciation goes to all the sponsors of the runners. The total funds raised by our efforts amounted to over HKD 100,000, this enabled the East Asia Centre to receive the Distinguished Fundraising Award in the organization category, further evidence of our commitment to the University's Social Responsibility agenda.
