At the same time, the Fund will, for a period of three years (2020-2023), each year donate two LAM Kin Chung - Ikeda Scholarships to the students of the College, with each scholarship amounting HK$10,000, i.e. a total of HK$60,000.

At the ceremony, President of Chu Hai College Professor LEE Chack Fan, Founder of the LAM KIN CHUNG MORNING SUN CHARITY FUND Dr. LAM Kin Chung, and awardee of the LAM Kin Chung Distinguished Professor Award Professor MA Kwai-min each delivered their speech to share their feelings.
Prof. Lee said, “Dr. LAM Kin Chung always takes the lead to do good deeds, and spares no effort in doing so especially in the field of education. The donation from Dr. Lam to our College will help enhance its teaching and learning standards. We are really very grateful to Dr. Lam.”
Dr. LAM Kin Chung believes that education affects a person’s entire life, and therefore educational work has been a field that he has always actively supported. He has known Professor MA Kwai-min for a long time. He knows that Prof. Ma has taught for many years, making tremendous contributions to the education sector, and certainly deserves this LAM Kin Chung Distinguished Professor Award.
When expressing his thanks, Prof. Ma said, “I’ve been working in the education field for 52 years. My intent in doing things has always been abiding by my duties with loyalty and dedication. Being granted this Award is a great encouragement to me.”
