仍有夢想的人

周偉文

一架從埃塞俄比亞首都阿的斯阿貝巴飛往肯尼亞內羅畢的波音737Max8客機,周日下午在起飛後六分鐘墜毀,全機157人全都罹難,引來全球關注。不少人因為這一款新的飛機,在四個月之內,接連發生很相同的意外,要求徹查意外成因。不少國家已即時把所有相同的飛機停飛,波音公司股價即時大幅下跌。

令人關注的另一個原因,是其中罹難者22人為聯合國工作官員,前往內羅畢參加周一開始的環境大會。會議開始前全場人士默哀1分鐘,聯合國秘書長古特雷斯對空難深感悲痛,向死難者家屬表示同情。這一次意外,對聯合國帶來極大打擊。

內羅畢是非洲主要城巿之一,是不少聯合國及世界志願組織,向非洲提供支持及發展服務的總部。中國近年來推動一帶一路,建設非洲也以內羅畢為重要起點,不少華人現時在非洲工作。空難中,共有8名華人罹難者,其中包括了任職於聯合國環境署的的一名香港人曾成毅。37歲的曾成毅,自小立志要改變非洲貧窮。意外發生後,不少曾成毅的朋友,把他如何實踐推動世界和平的理想,傳遍香港,令不少人感到激動。

曾成毅為熱心的基督徒,大學畢業後,投身志願機構宣明會,參加在中國陝西省扶貧工作。曾成毅與太太在教會活動中認識,兩人立志為世界和平作出貢獻,一同加入了聯合國工作。在社會中,曾成毅更在熱心推動世界環境保護,更在大學中作客席講師,傳承身體力行的經驗。有朋友回憶中學時與曾成毅討論過一個人到底怎樣可以改變非洲,他表示:「一個人當然不行,但我要一個人去影響一群人,一齊去改變這個世界!」

曾成毅的故事,讓我們想到在我們身邊,仍有不少人對世界懷抱熱情,追求夢想。社會中不少人都是以金錢利益來衡量一切,但總有些人,會是另類的一群。

 

People with dreams

An Ethiopian 737Max8 Airlines jet has crashed shortly after take-off from the capital city of Addis Ababa heading to Nairobi in Kenya, killing all 157 on board. With another plane of the same model was involved in a crash just four months ago, the world was shocked and these planes were grounded in many countries pending a thorough investigation while Boeing’s share price dips.

Notedly 22 out of the victims were scheduled for the UN’s Environment Assembly in Nairobi. Secretary-General of the UN Guterresexpressed his deepest condolences and declared a one-minute-silence at the beginning of the assembly. This was a hard blow to the UN.

Nairobi is a hub city in Africa with frequent visits by UN and international volunteering organizations as their base to deliver assistance to the continent. Actually, many Chinese also come to Nairobi because of China’s recent ‘The Belt and Road Initiative’. Eight of the crash victims were Chinese including Victor Tsang from Hong Kong who for the UN Environmental Branch. Aged 37, he has a long-standing vision of making Africa a better place. Just now many of his friends are promoting his vision and mission on global peace in Hong Kong media which touches many hearts.

Victor is a nice Christian who joined the World Vision right after graduation, involving Shaanxi poverty improvement projects. He met his wife in church and both joined the UN, willing to give themselves for a better world. He was passionate in environmental protection at the community level, serving as guest lecturer in universities, as a living example of his vision. One of his friend recalled their conversation on the means to change Africa, his answer was “ I can’t do it by myself, but I can make impact on a small community and all the way to change the world!”

Victor’s story reminds us of many people around us are still passionate about the world with their dreams, that makes them so different from the majority who just take money and profit as the only concern.
