Over the past several decades, Mr. Ma Kai Cheung and his family have consistently made generous donations to a host of worthy charitable causes in China and Hong Kong. He along with his son Mr. John Ma have also been active members of one of Hong Kong’s largest charitable organisations – the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals, holding the positions of vice-chairman and chairman respectively. In China, while donating significant money and resources to people affected by natural disasters, Mr. Ma senior has also long been a key supporter of charitable groups in Guangdong Province. He has also taken special care to support the education of younger generations in Hong Kong and China.
In recognition of their long-term contributions to charity in China and Hong Kong, the Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region awarded the Bronze Bauhinia Star to both Mr. Ma and his son John in 2003. It is the first time a father and son have received this special government honour on the same day.
In 2009, the Hong Kong Government also awarded the Silver Bauhinia Star to Mr. Ma Kai Cheung in recognition of his on-going contributions to society.
As a respected business leader in Hong Kong and China, Mr. Ma Kai Cheung serves in various capacities with many organisations, including national committee member of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, consultant for the All-China Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese, president of the Hong Kong Chiu Chow Chamber of Commerce, and president of the Shenzhen Overseas Chinese International Association.
